Notes From the Prayer Warrior

posted by on November 16 at 12:38 PM



Dear Prayer Warrior,

This article was written following an interview yesterday with Toby Harnden of the Telegraph, Britain’s No. 1 quality newspaper website.

Thank you for continued prayers as we fight the good fight.

Pastor Hutch

No. 1 quality! No really, it says it, right there at the top of the page!

Does the fat black fag Hutch know the computer was invented by a gay man from England around the time of WWII? Thank you Alan Turing for breaking the Enigma code but also help defeat those nasty Nazi's.

But I am sure Hutch would deny that correct?

The Telegraph and quality do not even belong in the same sentence together. #1 Quality Paper. Ha ha ha ha!!!

Hutcherson is such an attention whore. He really needs to take a look at what Jesus said about being meek and loving others, instead of spending all his time obsessing about something Jesus never once mentioned. That church could do so much good if they'd put that much energy and effort into, say, housing the homeless or feeding the hungry - things Jesus commanded all Christians to do. Instead they're wasting their energy on judging others, on throwing the first stone.

The Telegraph is a quality paper -- a term which has a specific meaning in Britain. The "qualities" are the broadsheets, as opposed to the tabloids -- from right to left, The Telegraph, The Times, The Observer, The Independent, and The Guardian. The Telegraph is a conservative paper but a very good one.

I'm guessing the Telegraph is going for a "look what these crazy American Christomaniacs are up to now" angle here. In Britain, both the right and the left regard our religious traditions with amused contempt. Either that, or it's along the lines of "Christ, I have business dealing with these lunatics, I have to know what they're up to".

The fact that his office is decorated with the heads of 'God's creatures' says it all about Mr. Hutch, 'the black man with a host of powerful white people behind him'. Maybe that should be his official title.

Man, this nutjob is more amusing to follow than Britney Spears...

Also, I never knew that he took up football to stick it to whitey. More batshit-craziness to Hutch than meets the eye, eh?

Did Hutch really say he’s going to pack Microsoft’s shareholder ranks with people who will vote against their policies on gay workers? Really? Does he know that Microsoft’s market cap is, like, $320 billion. 97% of their shareholders previously voted to uphold their policies (i.e., 3% disagreed with them)… so, he has to get anti-gay people to buy an additional 48% of their shares to get this to work. That’s 154 billion dollars.

Maybe he’s not very good at math.

Bigots are rarely very good at math

Posted by Darrell | November 16, 2007 1:17 PM

Well, since he needs $154 billion, he's probably going to have to get started now. Send those checks in, people! And, you know, if the Microsoft thing doesn't work out, well, I'm sure he'll find some way to put that money towards the Lord's work -- wink, wink.

People like Hutch, and their appearance in foreign media, make me embarrassed to be an American.

@6 Let's hope he's wearing underwear...

i prefer the guardian online and the Sunday Times style section...tara palmer-tomkinson was good 'fore she got dropped for all her nose candy

Posted by Jiberish | November 16, 2007 2:02 PM

Wow, that's a reach. You mean he couldn't find a single US publication that said anything good about his appearance? He had to go across the pond to find a newspaper that printed his press release?

I smell desperation. Pray harder next time, Hutch.

So why does Hutch get a pass on playing the race card in such a ham-fisted manner?

He's a heavily-degraded example, the last in a long line of black preachers. It used to be the only form of political outlet for blacks, so even into the civil rights era you had King, Abernathy, etc. But as blacks moved into normal political channels, the black preacher model became less and less important, and as it became less important, it became less ethical and less smart as well.

Just as Jesse Jackson was a clear step down from Ralph Abernathy, and Al Sharpton is a clear step down from Jesse Jackson, Hutch is a clear step down from Al Sharpton. I don't think there are too many more steps down possible, but I could be wrong.

He's a maggot on the tree of life for black political leaders, basically.

Um, lots of luck. The largest shareholders of corporations tend to be their founders followed by mutual funds. You can buy shares of mutual funds, but that doesn't give you voting rights for any of the stocks that are owned by those mutual funds.
