Ron Sims and the Rev. Ken Hutcherson to argue on March 2

The recent passage of the gay rights bill in the state Legislature has provoked a debate within the African American community about whether gay rights are akin to the African American civil rights movement of the 1960s.


The Rev. Ken Hutcherson, pastor of Redmond's Antioch Bible Church, is an outspoken opponent of gay rights and takes issue with the equation of the two movements. King County Executive Ron Sims, son of a Baptist minister and lay minister himself, just as vigorously takes the opposite point of view and has explicitly linked the two causes.


These two Black leaders debate the issue at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, in the downstairs section of Town Hall, corner of Eighth Avenue and Seneca Street (enter on Seneca).Tickets are $5 at the door only. Town Hall members receive priority seating.
