[Pastor Ken Hutcherson testifying against a bill in WA to legalize same-sex marriage]

I think that you are saying, as a committee and as a legislature that you know better than God, since you think that it is a very minded, bigoted, not understanding and loving thing to limit marriage to one man and one woman…If you pass this bill you’re just as narrow minded, you are just as bigoted and you’re just as unloving to everything and everyone who wants to get married outside of one man and one woman, two men and two women. But since you think God is not smart enough to make it fair, you’re saying that you’re smart enough to make it fair.

neither gawd nor your church hold the monopoly on marriage.

what is with you people and not wanting anyone to be happy?

I don't think that these people understand that we marriage-equality advocates are not dictated by their personal god, nor do we care. We do not live in a Christian nation, we don't give a flying fuck what your imaginary friend says, and you have no right to tell people how they can and cannot love one another.

The end.

A committee and a legislature do know better than God. Nonexistent beings don't know anything.

It's certainly not hard to know more then your god, who put fruit trees on the earth before there was a sun to help them survive.

Being more moral then your god isn't that hard either. Infact, just today, I planned on not stoning people who worked on the sabbath. And I didn't stone disobedient children.

I also sent a clearly worded message to people all around the world, and there was no problems with interpretation issues or needing a phd in theology to understand this message in context.

Clearly, I'm sooo much more powerful then god!

Marriage has always been a legal institution. The church was a latecomer to the scene, and only once they realized there was money to be made from it. There are even records of the church blessing same sex unions when it suited them.
God does not feature into it at all and never has except in your delusional minds.

Yeah, pretty much.

Have you considered the possibility that the committee members don't believe the bible is the word of your god and/or that some of them are atheists? Evidently, you haven't.

I think Ken Hutcherson should be prevented from ever marrying or having sex because the god I worship says it's a sin

See how it sounds, douchebag?

Basics first.

I can prove I exist and I can prove I am a citizen of the USA.

Who is this "God" that you speak of?

Sorry Pastor, but most Americans don't want laws based on religion.

This bill will pass. If it doesn't now, it will later.

Marriage is a civil contract betwen two people. The Churches or religion are not partners to this contract. In my case they are not even invited. So what does civil marriage have to do with religion? And why is religion shoving its nose into the private matters of citizens?

Mmmm, delicious word salad.

Oh, yeah. Because there's people picketing the funerals of dead soldiers in the name of heterosexuals. And there are straight people being beaten and then left tied to a fence to die because they're straight.

[Pastor Ken Hutcherson's ancestor testifying against a bill in WA to legalize interracial marriage, about fifty years ago.]

I think that you are saying, as a committee and as a legislature that you know better than God, since you think that it is a very minded, bigoted, not understanding and loving thing to limit marriage to one white man and one white woman… If you pass this bill you’re just as narrow minded, you are just as bigoted and you’re just as unloving to everything and everyone who wants to get married outside of one white man and one white woman, such as two people of different races. But since you think God is not smart enough to make it fair, you’re saying that you’re smart enough to make it fair.

Should I count this one as a fixed it for you? I wasn't entirely sure what Pastor Hutcherson was trying to say.

Ah, appeal to authority, let alone an authority you can't even prove.

Yes dumbshit, we are smart enough to make it fair. There is no logical reason why two people can't get married.

I've read this three times and I still have no idea what he was trying to say (yeah, I know he was trying to say 'gay marriage bad', but more specifically).

Living in WA myself most people really don't care what your god thinks.

Based on the record,God is simply not the brightest entity to ever toddle down the turnpike.

Why do these idiots assume Christanity is the basis for things older than itself?

Pastor Ken is the one who think's he knows better than God.
The marriage that Jesus spoke in favour of was polygamy.

If you pass this bill you’re just as narrow minded, you are just as bigoted and you’re just as unloving...

How so? Exactly how does another couple's marriage affect your own? Why do you think it's any of your business in the first place?

Washington is one of the least godsoaked states in the US, so good luck with your "God thinks it's icky" argument.

Of course we're smarter than your god. We actually exist.
