Erick Erickson claims pro-LGBT societies are suicidal; proves America's conservative movement is

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 At 3.57.20 PmIn a column where he accuses LGBT activists of using the tactics of infamous segregationist Bull Connor and argues that gay rights and Christianity can never be compatible, exceedingly anti-gay Fox News commentator Erick Erickson claims that a society that affirms LGBT rights is "a society bent on suicide":

This will not end well for any of us. Despite surveys designed to show the contrary, children tend to do best with mothers and fathers. A society that willfully undermines perpetuating itself is a society bent on suicide. One thing is for sure -- a faith that survived its followers being used as torches to light the streets of Rome will survive a modern age hell bent on ruthlessly stamping it out.

Of all the "oh, look how controversial I am" anti-gay conservatives, I find Erickson's rhetoric to be the lamest. If his anti-gay commentary were a fashion choice, it'd be socks with sandals: offensive to the sensibilities, sure, but in a way that's kind of too clumsy and dorky and careless to feel relatable. His words feel misbegotten. Like they've given up.
