In America, if a man puts something into another man, it had better be a bullet. ~Bill Maher
Rev. Ken Hutcherson on the Michael Medved Show (KTTH m-f 12-3p) said Tuesday that the Rabbi Daniel Lapin told him to fear not, the Hebrew language has no word for tolerance- that things therefore, were either right or wrong, bad or good. In other words, tolerance is not biblical.
(We're not that good on the Bible, but we didn't need a rabbinical scholar to tell us how intolerant the Rab and Rev are).
The former Seahawk came on the show as the victim of persecution endured while speaking at a local high school where he was booed gay students, and asked by a teacher, who's also the advisor of the Gay Club, "How can this man be here when he doesn't believe in equal rights for everyone?"
All the humble Christian preacher wanted to talk about was tolerance and Martin Luther King. Read about that kerfuffle, here.
Hutch was the intolerant yet arrogant victim, today. A role only he could pull off...
But not without the help of Michael Medved who played the straight man (not difficult for the Cultural Crusader), "There's nobody stronger [than Hutcherson] in the defense of traditional marriage," he said.
Hutch told Michael he hated Dr. King growing up in Alabama but learned to love when after he was saved as a Christian. (Hutch told us once he was born-again at the age of 14 after watching Roy Rogers on TV).
Back in the day, King was despised by right-wingers who think like Hutch, Lapin and Medved. Her was reviled as a Commie and an insurrectionist. (Medved, famously, is still mad about the 1964 Civil Rights Act). Now that King's been canonized by history, conservatives pretend they love him as much as we do and harken to his role as a Baptist preacher.
Hutcherson has maintained for years that there's no comparison between the gay rights struggle and the African-American rights struggle.
"I never seen no homosexuals-only drinking fountains." he says.
