The Prayer Warrior was in New York today…

Dear Prayer Warrior,

I just got off the train in New York, and heading to BET (Black Entertainment Television) to sit with a panel of 7 people to discuss homosexuality and the black church. Pray for wisdom, courage, and strength, and most of all, that God gets the glory!

Pastor Hutch

Dear Prayer Warrior,

Well, after 2 hours of taping, I am tired! It was confrontational and combatant [sic], but God was awesome. It was three against 1 1/2 (one other person who believed homosexuality is a sin). One pastor had a homosexual choir. They tried to throw everything at me, including accusations, but it didn’t work.

Thank you for praying. God was glorified.

That might be the best one ever!

"It was confrontational and combatant [sic], but God was awesome."

Damn, that is gold, GOLD. I love it when God's hatred is glorified.

Yeah, I think these emails are an acquired taste and I am only now beginning to get an appreciation for them.

Not sure I get the math though - 3 against
1 1/2 - who was the half? Whoever it was, God is great!

When that's aired, you'll show it, right?

I hope G*d smites this guy. And how.

I think the 1/2 referred to either God or himself. I.e. god is neither male nor female therefore 1/2, or maybe Hutch is only half a man because he won't tell the fucking truth about lying to foreign officials. Oh wait, I know... it means that he and God combine together into some sort of a Master-Blaster, 1-1/2 man mashup.

Hey, ya know I'm all behind the Rev Hutch because I've been reading the Bible and there's a lot of stuff in there about how homos are bad and stuff. But I've got a question: I've been reading up on Noah and the Curse of Ham and doesn't this mean that the Rev Hutch's black ass should be out in a field picking cotton for white folks instead of gallivanting around the East Coast and being the double super secret presidential envoy to Latvia?

I think Hutch is 1, and the "one other person who believed homosexuality is a sin" is the half. Because, not having the prayer warriors behind him, s/he could only be half the man Hutch is.

Whatever Dr. Rev. Special Envoy Hutch has his PhD in, it clearly isn't mathematics. Or maybe God can somehow make 3 + 1 1/2 = 7. You know, like "old" math and "new" math, now there's "God's" math.

Oh how I despise people that can't construct a sentence without bringing in the almighty power of the easter bunny and how glorious the tooth fairey is.

Meanwhile those other people on the panel are sending emails to their flock saying, "Damn people, that rev. Hutch is one messed up homophobe. We should pray for him to find the TRUE meaning of gods love and quit judging and hating. In the sweet dear baby lord Jesus' name, amen."

They threw everything at him, hopefully not excluding chairs.

Who bets Hutch will get some on the side before his trip back home? Oh, to have a camera and the time to follow this guy around!
