Erick Erickson being Erick Erickson: A dick

Add this share

Shrill gay-slurring Atlanta radio host Erick Erickson inflamed the Twittersphere on Thursday when he tried to sound supportive of the Boy Scouts allowing gay troops. But he was really just being a dick masking himself in a distorted Biblical view.

That's Erick being Erick, which is what gets him a prime slot on WSB Radio and a gig as a Fox News contributor. 

Here's how it started, less than an hour after the Boy Scouts announced that it approved allowing gay troops, but not Scoutmasters, in a 61 percent to 38 percent vote.


Supporters rallied. Critics pounced. Erickson reveled. Now meet his hypothetically gay son.


As criticism continued, Erickson pitched himself as a Christian warrior on the side of righteousness.


But it gets better. Erickson turns to the tried and true “love the sinner, hate the sin.”


Then it's back to the gay children. Repent homo children! And if you don't back his view of Christianity, then you're not a Christian.


And some more Bible study, Erickson style.


Screw you haters, there's a movie to be seen.


And finally, at 2 in the morning, Erickson's not a hater. Really.


And in case 140-character blasts of Erickson aren't enough, he offers a lengthier explanation of his take on the Boy Scouts decision on his Red State blog.

Erick Erickson's world. A great place to live. If you're not gay. Or a woman. Or Jewish.
