    Dr. Ken Hutcherson, the pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Redmond, Wash., posted an announcement earlier this week that many close to him – including his wife – have known for years. Hutcherson revealed that he is the "gayest man I know." "Coming out of the closet is a difficult decision to make, especially when close, personal relationships are at stake," Hutcherson wrote in his column, Hutch Speaks Out, that was published on WorldNetDaily. "Will my family abandon me? Will my friends still look at me the same? Will this announcement be worth the risk? These are indeed valid concerns...

    What is this world coming to? Another day brings another definition of love, marriage, religion, truth, civil rights and the church. Can anyone remember when there was more confusion? Only in a culture bombarded by "tolerance" could these issues be debated with any seriousness. It has been said loudly and proudly that gay marriage is a civil-rights issue. If that's the case, then gays would be the new African-Americans. I'm here to tell you now, and hopefully for the last time, that the gay community is not the new "African-American" community. In fact, I think Christians are the new Negro...

    A conservative black pastor and former NFL linebacker says he's highly offended that President Obama would compare the plight of homosexuals to that of blacks during the Civil Rights Era.On Monday, President Obama told a gathering of homosexuals at the White House that he is aware that many of them "don't believe progress has come fast enough," and compared their struggles to those of blacks during the Civil Rights Movement. Ken Hutcherson, the senior pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Washington, says the comments are especially disturbing from an individual who is supposed to be familiar with "the black experience." "But I...

    Breaking news reporter Casey McNerthney has been following the case of Rev. Ken Hutcherson and his controversial crossing with Mount Si High School. Here's his latest report: January was a big month for Rev. Ken Hutcherson. First, the pastor at Antioch Bible Church made the news for his stock-buying campaign to win influence over gay-friendly Microsoft. Then the gay rights opponent created a stir when administrators at Mount Si High School invited him to speak at an assembly honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The past two weeks have also been big for Mount Si English teacher Kit McCormick --...

    TEACHER'S UNION TAKE AIM AT CHURCH: Cleverly disguised as "objections from the teacher's union", local homosexual behavior advocates - are attempting to get Anticoch Bible Church in suburban Seattle kicked out of the local high school where it presently meets. The church pastored by former NFL player Ken Hutcherson pays in excess of $140,000 in annual rental fees for the right to meet at the school which houses some 3500 worshipers each Sunday. The major push by Antioch's opponents has been the head of the local teacher's union - who practices homosexuality. He has been severely affronted by Hutcherson's insistence on preaching...

    We've been close friends for years. We have shared Sabbath meals and addressed one another's constituencies. One of us is a very large black man, the other is an average size white guy. One of us raises Rottweiler dogs, the other sails boats. One of us is a Christian pastor while the other is an Orthodox Jewish rabbi. Yet for all these differences, something recently united us. And it was not that we're both bald or that we both have beards! What happened is that the senior rabbi of one of Seattle's largest Reform congregations attacked us in a local...

    After weeks of controversy over the issue, Microsoft has decided to return to a position of legislative support for gay and lesbian rights, at both the state and federal level. In a letter to employees, Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer said on Friday that the company would support antidiscrimination legislation, after backing off support for a Washington state bill on the issue last month. "After looking at the question from all sides, I've concluded that diversity in the workplace is such an important issue for our business that it should be included in our legislative agenda," Ballmer wrote in the...

    REDMOND, Wash., April 29 - Before he became a born-again Christian and later a rising national star in the world of black evangelical ministers, the Rev. Ken Hutcherson started playing football because, he said, it was the best way he could think of to "hurt white people." Dr. Hutcherson, a husky former linebacker for three National Football League teams who goes fishing with Rush Limbaugh and raises Rottweilers ("the bigger, the meaner, the better," he said of his pets), does not talk that way anymore about whites, saying his conversion to Christianity as a teenager changed all that. And a...
