That’s the motto of Antioch Bible Church, the 3,500-member congregation in Redmond whose senior pastor, Ken Hutcherson, talked Microsoft into selling its gay employees (and other gays who had applauded its stand on tolerance) down the river.
It’s a fancy website for a techie suburb. You can donate online, download a sermon in case you missed one, and (ironically) “Search the Bible for a word, e.g. ‘Love.'” Someone could use a little more searching.
Call me crazy, but I think about 20 or 30 of us showing up on Sunday and busting out with a rousing chorus of “Jesus Loves Me” at a quiet moment would be a great idea. At the least, it would show Pastor Hutcherson that if he wants to bring his message of fear and alienation to our workplaces, we can bring our message of love and tolerance to his.
If these people want a “culture war,” I say bring it.
