I guess that it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the man Rush Limbaugh tapped to officiate his latest wedding was none other than militant anti-gay activist Ken Hutcherson:
The preacher who signed Limbaugh’s and wife Kathryn Rogers‘ marriage license, Washington State-based mega-church boss Ken Hutcherson, is an internationally known critic of the gay rights who believes that many of the world’s ills stem from homosexuality.
Just last year, Hutcherson came to Limbaugh’s defense by claiming that Limbaugh was the victim of the “Minority Thought Pattern,” which is the refusal to realize that everything great about America has been accomplished by God through white males.
All I have to say is that I sure hope that no “soft men” at Limabugh’s wedding made the mistake of holding the door open for Hutcherson:
Reasonable people can disagree over whether gay marriage is a good idea. But Hutcherson goes beyond reasonable, at least to judge by the report of Seattle psychologist Valerie Tarico. … On a Sunday when Tarico was present, Hutcherson was preaching on gender roles. During his sermon, Hutcherson stated, “God hates soft men” and “God hates effeminate men.” Hutcherson went on to say, “If I was in a drugstore and some guy opened the door for me, I’d rip his arm off and beat him with the wet end.”
