Env-oy Vey

You may remember Rev. Ken Hutcherson. He's the Washington conservative preacher who was single-handedly responsible for getting Microsoft to effectively kill anti-discrimination legislation in that same state. Well, now Hutcherson's making trips overseas, with an extra special title:

Hutcherson’s supposed full title, which he claimed was bestowed upon him by the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, was: Special Envoy for Adoptions, Family Values, Religious Freedom, and Medical Relief.

Oh, and on his recent visit to Latvia, he brought along Scott Lively. Who's Scott Lively, you ask? Oh, just a charming man who believes that gays caused the Holocaust and we're a disease.

Of course, the White House is spinning like a top, claiming that Hutcherson is faking his status. Hutcherson, however, is claiming he has video evidence confirming his office, in which he appears with the director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives on Latvian television.

So, either Hutcherson's lying, which is very much a federal crime, or the White House is lying, and they deliberately appointed an arch-homophobe to spread the "official" word of the White House who thinks it's good business to associate with a Holocaust revisionist. Whichever way this story goes, it's likely going to end with something exploding.
