Christian is the New Black

If you haven’t had your fill of Wild-Eyed Shitcrazy Bonkers for the week, at Wingnut Daily the deranged Ken Hutcherson begins an unhinged anti-gay screed by hinting at some upcoming craze-a-liciousness:

It has been said loudly and proudly that gay marriage is a civil-rights issue. If that’s the case, then gays would be the new African-Americans. I’m here to tell you now, and hopefully for the last time, that the gay community is not the new “African-American” community. In fact, I think Christians are the new Negro – but that’s an issue for a follow-up column.

The Paranoid Persecution Complex, now with added civil rights metaphors for extra wingnutty goodness!

Hutcherson is African-American himself so he should know better, but he’s also a fundie, which by definition makes him a demented crackpot regardless of race, colour or creed.  A pastor who stokes the hellfires of anti-gay sentiment from his pulpit at the Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Washington, Hutcherson has a long and depraved history of anti-gay activism.  A favourite target is Microsoft…

A few years ago he was so pissed at Microsoft for supporting anti-discrimination laws that he devised a plan to punish the software giant:  all his supporters would buy a couple of shares in Microsoft with the goal of selling them all at once on a pre-arranged date in order to drive down the stock price.   Stock manipulation for Jesus — it’s not securities fraud if you’re a conservative! The day of the fundie stock dump the mighty Microsoft was shaken to its core, with stock closing 14 cents higher than the day before.

Knowing Hutcherson’s bugfuck nuttiness, it’s hard not to breathlessly anticipate his column explaining how “Christians are the New Negro”. But I wonder if he’s thought about how it will go over with his anti-abortion cohorts, who’ve already made pretty much the same claim about Fetuses.  Maybe they’ll compromise, and the New Negro will be Christian Fetuses?  Stay tuned.

    I just checked – on average, 65 million Microsoft shares change hands daily. Unsurprisingly, it’s among the most actively traded stocks.

    It’s like trying to starve your spouse to death by replacing a teaspoon of milk with water in each litre they drink.

    And all this time I thought the fetus was ‘the new Negro’. 😯

    Oh, nevermind. Commented before I read through to the end of your post.

    “Hutcherson is African-American himself so he should know better”

    did you hear that Ken? she says ‘get back in your corner and be a good negro’…Ken, liberals get mad when they start to see colored folk drift from the plantation…

    Reading Comprehension 101, Jasper.

    Hutcherson should know better than to make such a ludicrous analogy.

    Are Christians considered 3/5 of a human being? (I know some of them only have 3/5 of a brain, but they’re still human…) Where are all the atheist plantations with Christians working for free, and being bought & sold like property by their atheist masters?

    Christians are a privileged elite who’ve known entitlements like no other. Anyone who thinks they’re “oppressed” is either batshit insane or catastrophically dumb.

    FF – That’s right! Looks like another good schism in the making…

    RB – 😆 One of the articles I linked to, maybe the Stranger, had the number of shares it would take to even make a momentary dent in Microsoft… something like the entire population of Washington State, each buying a couple of shares, wouldn’t even be enough. And Hutcherson’s “support” is far from the entire population of Washington state.

    What a nut 😆 You have to wonder what he was thinking… or if he had some vested interest himself and was looking to sell short and make a pile of money.

  8. 8 Shade Sunday, November 22, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Or the far simpler solution of he’s just a twit who thought he could chip apart a mountain with a couple dull chisels.

  9. 9 JJ Sunday, November 22, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    Shade – That’s possible too… after all, he’s dumb enough to say something as stupid as “Christians are the new negro”.

    Isn’t the worry more about the Christian right being
    pushed out of the centre of discussion of public issues?

    Consider gay rights as a civil right and not something
    subject to religious argument and pooh-poohing and
    the “tiger” gets de-fanged. The tiger got its fangs
    back in the 1950s with the subject of school prayer
    in the US. From that day to this, it’s been an
    incremental exercise of power of the Christian right
    to assert itself in the public forum with such issues
    as segregation, voters’ rights, and abortion, to name
    a few

    More persons should realise that many issues today are
    about civil and individual rights and not subject to
    scriptural underpinnings. Another issue coming up is
    the matter of euthanasia. Civil or religious?
    From this corner, I say it’s an individual’s right
    and the self-righteous are going to have a hard time
    marshalling facts that stand up to the light of
    impartial analysis.

    The further the religious right gets pushed from the
    centre of the public forum, the quicker the ailing
    US will begin to heal and once again grow better.

    Good morrow, all!
    Those who trust their God, do not fear Him, or fear anything else.
    Those who fear their God, do not trust Him, and fear everything else.
    What does the behavior of these Christians tell you about how much they trust their God? Didn’t Jesus tell his followers, “Do not ask for a lighter cross, ask for a stronger back.”
    If one would witness to Him, witness to how He would heal the sick, raise the dead, walk with publicans, fishermen, tax collectors and, quite likely, prostitutes, and take up the cause of a woman about to be stoned for adultery. By Himself, He faced down a crowd of men with rocks in their hands, and shamed them into running away.
    Today’s “Christians” are that crowd of men. The rocks in their hands are the cries of “oppression” and “anti-Christian prejudice.” Who will stand up to them, and shame them into running away? No wonder Jesus wept.

    JJ, let us know the next time this guy tries some securities fraud. I may want to *ahem* observe just how much of a killer profit we, I mean those guys, would make on that day.

    Torontonian – You make a good point about the “culture war” aspect of things.

    Issues like abortion and gay marriage will never be resolved to the liking of the far right because the fundamentalist power brokers who get so rich off the movement don’t want them to be resolved — these issues keep the rank and file motivated to protest, and more importantly, make donations. If abortion or gay marriage were to be banned, as most of these people want, where would the motivation to dig deep come from? There always has to be an issue that’s perceived as a battle that needs to be fought.

    The further the religious right gets pushed from the
    centre of the public forum, the quicker the ailing
    US will begin to heal and once again grow better.

    Exactly. Nobody has done more to divide and damage the US than the religious right. Not even the warmongering neocons have done as much damage domestically.

    Today’s “Christians” are that crowd of men. The rocks in their hands are the cries of “oppression” and “anti-Christian prejudice.” Who will stand up to them, and shame them into running away?

    The majority of citizens are sick of religious fascists, and are increasingly starting to stand up to them. They had their time for the last 8 years, and the havoc they wreaked was devastating. I think the Terri Schiavo travesty was the limit for a lot of people — since then, the religious right’s stock has spiraled downwards and will continue to do so.

    Even James Dobson admitted the so-called “culture war” is a lost cause. He was probably also trying to motivate a cash infusion, but still, that’s a fairly heavy statement to make.

    bleatmop – 😆 Why not, they can’t get things any wronger than my broker.


Wait. What?
