Ken Hutcherson, Antioch pastor and spokesperson for the conservative Stand For Marriage Coalition, has come out in a column for WND.com as a “gay Christian,” declaring that he will “take back” the term now used to define sexuality. This isn’t the first of his anti-gay campaigns: Hutcherson proclaimed his intent to take back the rainbow, which symbolizes gay pride. The Huffington Post:

A Washington state-based pastor now hopes to launch an effort to reclaim the word “gay” from the LGBT community and presumably liberate it from its sexuality-related definition, returning it to meaning “happy” or full of “joy.”

Ken Hutcherson is included in GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project. Check out his profile: http://www.glaad.org/cap/ken-hutcherson
