Facts

-- Says gay people "must repent" and "not act on" their sexuality

-- In post titled "Gay Rights Proponents Act Like the Third Reich," claimed that "comparing gay rights activists to the Nazis is fitting"

-- Claims of religious opinion on civil equality: "As long as there are still Christians who actually follow Christ and uphold his word, a vast amount of people around the world — never mind Islam — will never ever see gay marriage as anything other than a legal encroachment of God’s intent;" Refers to same-sex marriage as "that which perverts God’s own established plan"

-- Believes "same sex sexual relations is [sic] a sin, as is lying, greed, gluttony, etc." Admonishes a countering voice of faith with the line: "[Y]ou are not loving your neighbor if you are cool with them going to hell."

-- Wrote of the Boy Scouts' decision to allow gay scouts: "One cannot teach moral straightness when one lifestyle is not morally straight unless celibate — a decision few will make and most will ridicule.  So it is better for churches to just go on and opt out."

-- Argues that men are dominant; offensively slighted working women 

-- Claims a society that affirms LGBT rights is "a society bent on suicide"

-- When Rosie O'Donnell married her former partner, viciously slammed Rosie (and gays in general) like so: "Most people I know are just a bit grossed out by gay marriage and gay subculture. If you are a red blooded heterosexual American male who didn’t grow up in a liberal metropolis, admit. It may not seem offensive to you or morally wrong, but it probably just creeps you out a bit. It’s not the person, but the act. Well, sometimes it is the person. When people read [this sotry about Rosie's marriage], the numbers in favor of a Federal Marriage Amendment will probably skyrocket...I’d rather think about one of those disgusting pics guys in my dorm use to slide under doors as jokes when the internet was just taking off, than thinking of Rosie and her girlfriend — gross. (You know the pictures — they usually involve a naked woman and a well endowed horse.)" 

-- In column titled "Why not incest?" claims many current supporters of marriage equality really support things like incest and polygamy, but just lie about it for now: "The truth is, many, many, many of the same people who are now in support of gay marriage, but would oppose this or polygamy will, once the next step is advanced, support these things too. They just have to lie about it for now until they can shift public opinion further."

-- Attacks feminists by calling them "ugly" ("too ugly to get a date;" "Ugly feminists return to their kitchens")

-- Responding to a sermon that said gay people must change and compared homosexuality to addiction, Erickson tweeted: "I agree with every word"

-- Said to a caller: "I'm still stuck on you not calling them gays because they have nothing to be happy about. That's actually pretty good."

-- Referred to Michelle Obama as a "marxist harpy wife"

-- Says Christian denominations that accept gays are "Christian in name only"
