People of faith speaking out for Approve Referendum 71

By: Monday October 26, 2009 4:15 pm

Reverend Joan Montagnes and about 50 members and friends of the East Shore Unitarian Church took it to the streets of Bellevue, Washington Sunday.  Rev. Joan said she put out the call for lay leadership, Chris Conkling answered, and the event happened in short order.   Their message: Vote APPROVED on Referendum 71! Their philosophy: [...]

Who is recruiting Washington’s children?

By: Monday October 19, 2009 11:00 pm

Radical-right anti-equality folk are fond of claiming that gays are out to recruit children.  Protect Marriage Washington goes so far as to use the slogan “protect children” and infer that the mere mention of gay people in a non-critical way to children will poison their little minds and pervert them on the spot.   I [...]

Radical-Right Catfight, Round 2: Ken Hutcherson v. "certain shepherds"

By: Monday July 27, 2009 6:00 pm

After sitting out the Referendum 71 signature drive due to ill health, Ken Hutcherson is back with claws bared…for his brother Christians. Prayer Warrior Monday, 27 July 2009 Thank you for praying for Washington state!  Enough signatures have been gathered to try and repeal SB5688 (Everything but Marriage). God proved He doesn’t need certain shepherds [...]

Gary Randall and Joe Fuiten have embarrassing public spat

By: Wednesday July 22, 2009 2:00 pm

Gary Randall (pictured right) is having a conniption fit.  Pastor Joe Fuiten, the former Director of Gary’s Faith & Freedom Network and the very person who hired Gary into that cash cow position has had the temerity to tell the truth about Washington’s radical right. “As a political movement, it is a leaderless army milling [...]

Gary Randall Sees What He Wants to See

By: Friday May 8, 2009 1:20 pm

UPDATE:  Oregon Gary’s Washington operative, Larry Stickney, posts his own straw poll that adds up to 86%, lol.  See screen shot below the fold. Oregonian Gary Randall posted a survey on his blog yesterday.  He did so because he refused to accept the unsurprising news Monday that few of Washington State’s major religious right figures [...]

Larry Stickney’s Referendum off to a Bumbling Start

By: Tuesday May 5, 2009 10:45 am

UPDATE:  THIS IS HUGE.  Pastor Joe Fuiten, former brother-in-arms with Larry & Oregon Gary, sent out an e-mail this morning quoting clergy and other hard-core anti-LGBTs on how craven this referendum effort is, and why it will fail.  No wonder Larry refused to name the members of the “broad-based coalition” he claimed Monday to be [...]

Let the people vote! Oh, but not on THAT

By: Saturday April 18, 2009 2:09 am

Follow my stream of consciousness…. Hard to believe it, but that embarrassment to The Washington Hate Coalition, the greedy evictor of retired clergy Pastor Joe Fuiten, decided to test the waters again by making a statement to the press about the passage of our DP bill.  What he said was vacuous and unimportant, but what [...]

Whatever Happened to Pastor Fuiten?

By: Monday April 13, 2009 5:00 pm

Until recently, Joe Fuiten of the Bothell, WA Cedar Park Assembly of God was the go-to guy when the press needed anti-LGBT commentary.  Whether it was special rights for straight couples, or insisting that religion is a valid excuse to discriminate, you could always count on Joe to provide an incendiary quote. So why is [...]
