Notes from the Prayer Warrior

posted by on February 15 at 13:37 PM

Does the Prayer Warrior read the Slog? If not, then maybe the fact that this note from him arrived on the same day that Dan posted this news is just… coincidence.

This poster is hanging in the window of a classrom at Mt. Si High School!


It’s time we wake up and realize we are in a culture WAR!

When teachers are allowed to hang posters like this in our local school, we’ve got a big problem. It’s time to take back our schools.

Makes me wonder: does Hutch have a kid who likes manga? Does Hutch know what "Yaoi" is?

If this is a culture war, I'm hoping that this guy gets treated as an unlawful combatant.

Of course Hutcherson is pimping this issue all over the Christian right gay hate-o-sphere. He's now demanding that both the teachers involved be fired.

Dear Hutch,

They were never really, like, yours in the first place, remember?

Is it time to say Hutch's antics are no longer funny? Or is making fun of him still the best critique?

Posted by elenchos | February 15, 2008 1:46 PM

Is that a terroristic threat? Someone phone homeland security.

Hutch's daughter attends Mt. Si High School. It was probably she that took the photo for Daddy.

She's also the one that arranged with the principal for Hutch to be the MKL speaker there.

Following in her father's footsteps?

"It's time to take back our schools"

Does he mean from religious nutbags who preach hatred in the guise of an illusionary set of self-defined traditional values, who are blind to the hypocrisy of being seen as an expert on discrimination while practicing an agenda of discrimination and who somehow feel empowered to claim the voice for "our" opinions, thoughts and hopes, all for himself and his peculiar brand of twisted self-aggrandizing proselytism?

If so...then yes, I's time to take back OUR schools.

(Now, if he was only complaining about weak graphic design...I'd agree too. That poster looks like it's advertising an upcoming performance of Godspell.)

Time to call our the School Board folks. The fight is on.

I don't know who will win the battles, but one thing is for sure: In a culture war, the gays will have the better uniforms.

Posted by six shooter | February 15, 2008 2:02 PM

will we get to use manray guns?

You know, Hate and Fear just don't work well anymore.

Sometimes, America just wakes up, goes to the bathroom, brushes it's teeth, runs a comb thru it's hair and says "Man, I am so not doing that again!"

This is one of those time.

No more Fear.

Stranger Staff ... is there anything that we can actually do about him? I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sick of talking about him. WHY AREN'T ANY OF US DOING ANYTHING?!?!?

Posted by disgusted | February 15, 2008 2:19 PM

pgreyy @8, I just thinking how well done that poster is, at least by high school club poster standards.

Greg @1 (and disgusted @13), maybe we should bring yaoi to the Hutch's attention.  It doesn't seem too far-fetched that it might catalyze his homophobia into open racism.

Posted by lostboy | February 15, 2008 2:30 PM

Here's an idea: maybe someone could forward to the school administrators that story about Larry King, the gay middleschooler who was shot and killed by a classmate the other day.

Then ask them if they can think of any liability issues that might arise if such a thing were happen at Mt Si High, especially in light of the fact that they recently invited a known anti-gay bigot with ties to violent extremists in Latvia to speak at a mandatory school assembly on MLK Day.


Posted by bing | February 15, 2008 2:30 PM

That pawprint behind "GSA" must mean they support bestiality. That's what you get for making homosexuality mainstream: kids into furries.

Posted by Tdub | February 15, 2008 2:36 PM

that poster is tacky.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | February 15, 2008 2:38 PM

isnt mt. si's mascot some kind of animal with a paw?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | February 15, 2008 2:48 PM

Why is WAR capitalized?

Posted by This Guy | February 15, 2008 2:49 PM

@13: I'm in total agreement.

Ken Hutcherson is SO last week. He should totally crawl in a hole and die.


At risk of sounding disrespectful (which is truly not my intention) does anyone else find it seriously unforunate that the boy who was murdered was name Larry King?

Posted by Queen_of_Sleaze | February 15, 2008 3:17 PM

@18: Mt. Si Wildcats.

I'm so ashamed I know that, and I've never attended Mt. Si.

And hey Hutch: it's not your school. Bitch about posters in a school you run, not some school you're connected to for four years while your daughter attends it. If you're so offended by her school, do what packs of fundies do and pull her out and homeschool her. That way she can learn where a woman's place is, right?

Jesus fuck.

BTW, nice poster.

Posted by Jessica | February 15, 2008 3:29 PM

The silhouette on the right just gave me a woody.

Posted by Creep in the Cellar | February 15, 2008 3:42 PM

HEY HUTCH, how bout you take your children out of OUR public schools and send to any wingnut school you choose!!

Posted by Christianflkr | February 15, 2008 3:43 PM

I think it's better that he keep his kids in public school so maybe they won't grow up and be like him.

Posted by Mike of Renton | February 15, 2008 3:49 PM

Well, All I can say if THANK GOD they are sticking to their own kind on those posters. If they had shown a white cartoon character with a black one, I'd have to walk out in protest

Hutch's kids would walk halfway out with me.

Posted by George Wallace | February 15, 2008 3:54 PM

Counting down the time until Hutch gets caught in a gay love tryst. Ten...nine...eight...

Posted by Gurldoggie | February 15, 2008 4:51 PM

Can't wait till Hutch's daughter comes out of the closet...

Posted by subwlf | February 15, 2008 5:03 PM

hutch must really be repressing some desires to have all this pent up anger...

Posted by holz | February 15, 2008 7:00 PM

The thing that's fucked up about this is that it's timed to look like a response to the whole incident that happened last month, but take away that pre-existing incident and look at the message here. If the events were reversed time-wise, would anyone have questioned either teacher's reaction to Hutch speaking at the school under the guise of diversity? I mean, besides the apparently terribly naive children who go there and think they've formed opinions and then come here and yell about how they feel the GSA oppresses them.

This is exactly what those teachers were bringing up: Hutch's tendency to call for this kind of "action". It's so obvious that he has, in a way, disarmed the very teachers who would have led the fight against this. Is it a coincidence that those teachers have been effectively put "on notice" by the administration, just in time for this bullshit to surface?

Seriously, the dude makes me shudder with fear sometimes, even as ridiculous as he is. With all the comments that surfaced on slog when Jonah started covering the Mount Si goings-on, it's evident he has more influence than I thought, even though he's a wack-job.

Posted by Kristin | February 15, 2008 7:48 PM

glad to see that the Hutcherson issue still has people wanting to take action. There is a parent-run website that is fighting back against Hutcherson and the Snoqualmie school district's ridiculous and misguided actions: It's quickly becoming the place where folks are getting organized and has all of the latest updates regarding the issue at Mount Si...

Love the poster!...but, given the climate at Mount Si, I'm surprised it hasn't been ripped down by the administration or any of Hutcherson's little goons.

Posted by Mount Si parent | February 15, 2008 7:54 PM

Hutcherson can huff and puff all he wants but as long as the Equal Access Amendment stands, he can't do anything else.

And I know they are going to try and twist that poster to mean something carnal, but that lie won't fly.

Posted by a. mcewen | February 16, 2008 6:46 PM

That poster is a bit, uh... suggestive?

Posted by KeeKee | February 16, 2008 8:26 PM

Let's face it.

Hutch Hutcherson is gay.

He is having a hard (on?) time dealing with it.

I pity his conflicted daughter.

Posted by Partial Birth | February 16, 2008 8:46 PM

i don't like that the gay couples have a black silhouette and the straight one gets white.
