Pastor Ken Hutcherson, of the Antioch Baptist Church in Redmond, Washington, is working with the National Organization for Marriage to repeal his state’s gay marriage law.
Hutcherson recently revealed that he is the "gayest man I know" as part of a campaign to “take back the rainbow” from the gay community.
Pastor Hutcherson told the Christian Post, it is all part of an effort to retake “hijacked” words:
"My frustration is that some groups have taken words and symbols away from the Church and from society in general. When I say I'm 'gay,' what I mean is that I am happy, that I am joyful and that I love people. That is precisely what a Christian ought to be so in my opinion we just need to be as gay as we can."
"Dan Savage (a pro-gay activist) says he is gay. He's not gay, not anywhere close. Yeah, he may be a homosexual but he certainly doesn't appear to be happy or joyful when he stands up in front of a classroom and uses profane language. Nope, nothing gay about that."
