$25 gets you a night of anti-gay hate in Atlanta

Add this share

For $25, you can watch Erick Erickson spew his anti-gay bile up close and personal over dinner. Which is a change from listening to the conservative shill do it on Atlanta radio for free.

The question is if you can stomach An Evening with Erick Erickson at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast in Norcross.

Religious freedom is the bedrock principle upon which our country was birthed. But that foundational truth is under increasingly aggressive attack. Join us as we share inspirational and motivational stories of victory and learn how our winning strategies are reshaping the landscape of the battle to preserve religious freedom.

Erickson – who hosts an afternoon drive time on WSB Radio, bloviates on Fox News and is chief extremist at Red State – is besties with Alliance Defending Freedom, the group hosting the April 24 event. Why? Because ADF writes legislation like the “religious freedom” bills LGBT activists fought so hard to defeat at the Georgia Capitol. They also defend this Atlanta woman who was fired for refusing to counsel a lesbian. And Erickson loves that.

Fork over $25, and bring cash for cocktails, to hear Erickson say what, exactly? Stuff like this:

There will be no accommodation between gay rights activists and those seeking religious freedom to opt out of the gay rights movement. Gay rights activists demand tolerance for their lifestyle, but will not tolerate those who choose to adhere to their religious beliefs.

And this:

I'm not worried about my son becoming gay. I'm worried about him living in a society that doesn't recognize it as a sin.

And this:

Sorry folks, it is not judging to note the practice of homosexuality is a sin. It would be judging though to not love them as a neighbor.

And this:

It is only now, but with compulsion to bake cakes for gay weddings and provide funding to subsidize abortions, etc. that we are having this fight. Christians assumed they had the right, the state left them alone, and everyone went about their business.

And this:

I hope opponents to gay marriage across the nation make Mrs. Huguenin and Ms. Willock’s names household names and show Americans the aggressive lengths gay rights activists will force their brand of tolerance on Christians.
