Reverend Ken Hutcherson will make a formal declaration of war this Thursday on a Focus on the Family radio broadcast. This Seattle-area
bigot pastor is calling for a national boycott of Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Nike and other companies that support a gay civil rights bill in Washington state.
I took a look at the Focus on the Family website and I couldn’t help but laugh. Right on the front page was a picture of a happy black family. I wonder how happy they would have been 75 years ago when Christians wearing white sheets would decorate their front yards with burning crosses.
Discriminating against homosexuals is no different than discriminating against blacks, Jews, Christians, Muslims, or any other defined group of people. It’s rooted in ignorance and has no place in a civilized society. Whether or not the bible says its wrong is of no concern to those who don’t subscribe to the Christian doctrine.
