Gay Rights Debate: Dr. Ken Hutcherson v. Ron Sims
Airs on Thurs., Aug. 23, 2 p.m.
This November, Washington voters will decide on Referendum 74, which seeks to overturn the gay-marriage law signed in February. We're rebroadcasting a 2006 gay-rights debate between Dr. Ken Hutcherson, pastor of the Antioch Bible Church and an opponent of gay rights, and former King County Executive and HUD Deputy Secretary Ron Sims, son of a Baptist minister and lay minister himself, who takes the opposing view. Are gay rights akin to the African-American Civil Rights movement of the 1960s? These two influential black leaders take up the issue. Watch it now!
