On October 15, 2004 The Washington Post reported, "the Rev. Ken Hutcherson's game plan is simple. The former professional football player turned megachurch pastor intends to pack a stadium-size crowd of evangelical Christians onto the Mall today to decry same-sex marriage and 'let everyone know God is in control' of the Nov. 2 elections. Hutcherson's 'Mayday for Marriage' rally is one of dozens of loosely coordinated or independent efforts by evangelical ministers, Christian lobbying groups and the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign to mobilize religious conservatives in the final weeks of the 2004 presidential race."
