Today in the Christian Post, Kevin Hutcherson alleged that the timing of Jason Collins coming out and President Obama addressing Planned Parenthood were no coincidence and were both the work of Satan.
“Last Friday, April 26th, President Obama became the first sitting president to speak at the National Planned Parenthood Conference,” Hutcherson wrote. “Not only did he speak at this event, but he invoked God’s blessing upon them! No president in our history has had the arrogance to openly endorse the slaughter of our unborn, and atrocities against women.”
As a reminder, abortion only accounts for roughly 3% of the services Planned Parenthood provides. The fact that Planned Parenthood also offers life-saving services like HIV and cancer screenings is evidently of no consequence to Hutcherson.
“Would the American people have ever endorsed the likes of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Emperor Hirohito, or other mass-murderers as this President has done?” he continues. “And let me mention another genocidal maniac: Dr. Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia, who ‘surprisingly’ was not mentioned by the President during his speech, despite working under the policy of Planned Parenthood.”
Ignoring the fact that leaping to Nazi comparisons demonstrates that Hutcherson is as intellectually and emotionally mature as the average nine-year-old, maybe President Obama neglected to mention Kermit Gosnell because he has no affiliation with Planned Parenthood. On the contrary, late-term “back alley” abortions are precisely what Planned Parenthood’s abortion coverage is supposed to prevent.
Instead of giving his audience time to process this, Hutcherson went on to instead tear into something that is only even remotely related to Planned Parenthood from a religious fanatic’s point of view: Jason Collins coming out as homosexual.
“In other news, do any of you believe there is a connection between the Boston Celtic NBA basketball player, Jason Collins, announcing he is gay only 72 hours after President Obama’s speech to Planned Parenthood? The answer is a resounding YES! More proof that Christian views are very much under attack! The enemy has impeccable timing.”
Jason Collins actually plays for the Washington Wizards. Which is a triviality in the larger scheme of things, but it’s also something Hutcherson could have found out online in about ten seconds.
This is being pointed out, not because it is important, but because it illustrates just how very little Hutcherson cares about getting his facts right.
Hutcherson went on to assert that Collins is playing “Russian roulette with his soul” and bemoaned the fact that Tim Tebow was asked to “keep his beliefs quietly to himself” while Collins is being applauded. This was followed by the usual rant about how sports teams are now intolerant for not tolerating Hutcherson’s brand of intolerance.
Hutcherson concluded with a call for all readers to join his “Black Robe Brigade.”
“Let’s move, Black Robe Brigade, and watch God do awesome things.”
To his credit, God has already done at least one awesome thing. He created Ken Hutcherson so the rest of the world could point and laugh at him.
