Anti-Gay Activist Ken Hutcherson Dies

Anti-gay activist Pastor Ken Hutcherson, who led the Referendum 71 effort to repeal Washington state's domestic partners law, has died of prostate cancer at the age of 61. Via World Net Daily:
He frequently was at the center of public controversy as an opponent of homosexual activism. He organized a “Mayday for Marriage” rally in Seattle in 2004 that drew 20,000 participants and spearheaded a similar event in Washington, D.C., later that year that attracted 140,000. A year later, he mobilized citizens to oppose state legislation that would have made it illegal to fire an employee due to their “sexual orientation.” He vowed to organize a national boycott of Microsoft products if the locally headquartered software giant didn’t withdraw its support, sparking protests. A close friend of family advocate Dr. James Dobson, Hutcherson raised his voice when he saw Dobson’s successor at Focus on the Family, Jim Daly, signal a more conciliatory approach to social issues.
Shortly after Washington state voters approved same-sex marriage in November 2012, Hutcherson declared that NOM was a racist organization and had excluded him from their campaign because he was black. He also led annual public school walkouts in protest of the Day Of Silence, a campaign against the bullying of gay kids. In 2010 Hutcherson officiated at Rush Limbaugh's fourth marriage.
