Hate-Filled Pastor, "God hates soft men"

Sometimes people get so angry they almost become comical, almost.  Take the case of Rrv. Ken Hutcherson of Kirkland, Washington.  He doesn't like "the gays" and has said so many times.  He even calls on his god to justify this hatred.  "God hates soft men", said the football star turned pastor. Just so his congregation didn't mistake his meaning he went on to say, "If I was in a drugstore and some guy opened the door for me, I'd rip his arm off and beat him with the wet end."


The reason this hate-filled Reverend has come to the forefront is the pending legislation for Same-sex marriage in Washington state.  Speaking about the state's governor,Christine Gregoire, Hutcherson compared her to the man who assassinated Lincoln.
"She might as well change her name to John Wilkes Booth because what she’s doing now is trying to put a bullet in the head of one of the greatest traditions that has ever existed and has built our society, and that is marriage between one man and one woman."
This kind of blind hatred and overheated rhetoric is a disgrace to the teachings of Jesus and I am appalled that this guy claims to be speaking for God.

I guess the extravagant grace of God can extend to him as well, but I wonder if he will be able to understand it.
