Red State's Erickson: 'Little moral difference' between incestuous and gay couples

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-04-05 At 11.14.31 AmWith the writing so clearly on the wall, expect to see even mainstream voices like Erick Erickson say this kind of stuff with increasing frequency:

"If life comes down to who you love and who loves you back, if a father and son love each other so much they want to get married, there is little moral difference between two people of the same sex getting married who are not related and want to be and two people of the same sex who already are related becoming closer." [RedState]

If this is really Erickson's standard, then why is there a moral difference between an incestuous and an unrelated heterosexual couple? The only real difference is that he, standard-bearer of a beleaguered conservative movement, sees a need to stigmatize the loving gay couples who seek out and form relationships and doesn't see the same need to do that to men/women pairs.

The American public has a pretty clear understanding of why parents don't have sexual relationships with their children. If folks like Erickson want to play this card, they do so at their peril. So please, by all means, Mr. Red Stater—have a fantastic time engaging in these Electra/Oedipal thought exercises.
