REVEREND EGO TRIP SAYS, "HIS BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS"
Reverend Ken Hutcherson, the self-obsessed preacher who says he got Microsoft to back away from support for a gay-rights measure in Washington State, apparently doesn't limit his bigotry to homosexuals. This is from a story about The Passion of the Christ on the Australian radio program The World Today, February 19, 2004 (emphasis mine):
LEIGH SALES: Pastor Ken Hutcherson, who runs the Antioch Bible Church in Washington State, has seen an advance screening of the film. In order to generate favourable publicity, Gibson's company has invited select, mostly Christian audiences, to showings to ensure good word-of-mouth.
KEN HUTCHERSON: I think it's going to be controversial to those believers who don't want to admit the suffering that Christ had to go through to pay for our sins. I think it's going to be controversial to the whole view of the Jewish nation. The truth is that they did push to have Christ crucified. That's just plain truth... that's Biblical truth.
Lovely. Maybe not as dramatic as Pat Robertson saying federal judges are worse than the 9/11 terrorists or Robertson and Reverend Louis Sheldon saying Muslim-Americans aren't fit to be judges, but still, just lovely.
