Slavic Anti-gay Extremists in the US.

A growing number of first or second generation immigrants from Russia, the Ukraine and other countries of the former Soviet Union are gathering in mostly the western states of the US to form viscious anti-gay movements.

"The West Coast connection" or the "U.S.-Latvia Axis of Hate", started by a Latvian megachurch preacher, is primarily responsible for spreading the hate toward the GLBT population in the Sacramento Valley. The followers of this anti-gay group call themselves the "Watchmen on the Walls" and tend to be active in gay-friendly areas such as Sacramento, Seattle and Portland, Oregon.

God has "made an injection (referring to the anti-gay activists)..In those places where the disease is progressing, God made a divine penicillin." -- Vlad Kusakin, the host of a Russian-language anti-gay radio show in Sacramento and the publisher of a Russian-language newspaper in Seattle

Scott Lively, now the chief international envoy for the Watchmen movement and co-author of The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party preaches Masculine Christianity based on a Reconstructionist's idea of bringing back Old Testament law, which include stoning to death active homosexuals. He even includes what he calls "homosexualists," a category that includes anyone who promotes homosexuality as morally and socially equivalent to heterosexuality.

The Watchmen protested a small donation of $7,179 the U.S. embassy in Latvia made to Mozaika, a Latvian gay rights organization, and supposedly they did it in the name of the Bush Administration. Rev. Ken Hutcherson, the ex-NFL player, African-American founder of Antioch Bible Church, claimed that the White House designated him a White House envoy during a February 2007 meeting between himself, Ledyaev and Jay Hein, the head of the White House's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Hutcherson claims he has a videotape of this meeting, but so far has refused to release it.

In a written statement, the White House said,

"The White House Office of Faith-based and Community Initiatives did not give Hutcherson the title, 'Special Envoy for Adoptions, Family Values, Religious Freedom, and Medical Relief.' The White House did not give Hutcherson any other titles and did not coordinate with Hutcherson on his recent trip to Latvia."

The question remains, if what the White House said is true, shouldn't they pursue Hutcherson for the felony of impersonating a diplomat?
