Is Rev. Hutcherson back in Latvia?

Posted by David Postman at 5:01 PM

From UK Gay News comes two reports -- here and here -- that say the Rev. Ken Hutcherson has returned to Riga, Latvia, to join protests against the city's gay pride festival.

RIGA, May 31, 2007 (UK Gay News) -- Foreign guests, please don't come to Latvia for Riga Friendship Days and Gay Pride. That is the message from the 'No Pride' group, who have not headed their own plea.

They say on their website: "Foreign Guests please don't come. It's our problem. Not yours!"

However, foreign guests appear to be welcome to be in town for the four-day 'festival', which has opened today (May 31), if they support the No Pride viewpoint.

Scott Lively, the American author of The Pink Swastika, is reported to be already in Riga.

I wrote about Lively and Hutcherson in March. Hutcherson claimed he was reprsenting the White House, which the White House has denied.
