Redmond pastor drops anti-homosexuality initiative

Associated Press - June 29, 2007 11:05 AM ET
REDMOND, Wash. (AP) - A Redmond pastor has dropped an anti-homosexuality initiative.
The measure would have set up a state vote on the law banning discrimination against gays and lesbians.
Ken Hutcherson of Antioch Bible Church would have needed 225,000 voter signatures by July 6th to make the November ballot.
The initiative aimed to overturn the state law passed last year that added "sexual orientation" to the list of categories -- such as race, gender and religion -- on which the state bans discrimination.
