And the Trophies for Most Homophobic Comments Go to...

First Place goes to Rev. Ken Hutcherson, former NFL linebacker and current pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland Washington.

Check out these quotes from a sermon by Rev. Hutcherson.
On a Sunday when Tarico was present, Hutcherson was preaching on gender roles. During his sermon, Hutcherson stated, "God hates soft men" and "God hates effeminate men." Hutcherson went on to say, "If I was in a drugstore and some guy opened the door for me, I'd rip his arm off and beat him with the wet end." (emphasis mine)

Second Place
goes to Rev. Jimmy Swaggart, pioneer of televangelism and preacher to this day in spite of being publicly exposed with prostitutes in 1986 and 1991.

Check out what Rev. Swaggart says he would do if a gay man ever looked at him "the wrong way" (around 0:50 in the following video). And don't miss his assurance at 1:55 that he's not antagonizing "the poor homosexual." Uh huh. Right.
