  •  Brian Brown's response (8+ / 0-)


    "That is simply not true," he told CP. "Pastor Hutcherson wanted to work on an initiative and not a referendum which we thought was the best method. Brown also called Hutcherson's comment "absurd and reckless," and that he never heard any complaints from the Washington pastor. He also pointed to others such as Maryland's Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr. who is also black and was out front in his state's effort to overturn a new state law. "In the body of Christ I think if we have differences they need to be aired out between us and not in the public arena."
    Focus on the Family responds too.
    "We would have hoped that Pastor Hutcherson would have brought something like this to us directly, but we haven't from him so we can't respond. Over the years the state campaigns to preserve marriage have been characterized by ethnic and racially diverse support, and that includes Washington."
