Erick Erickson knows his audience. If you’re speaking at the Values Voters Summit, you can be sure the crowd is full of creationists, so why not “disprove” a ridiculous caricature of evolution (one that they already believe, of course) and throw in a little preaching at the end.
These days, Erickson lamented, people “worship science” and “believe we were an accident of a primordial goo, particles bumping into each other after the Big Bang that created bacteria that created amoeba that created something that led to something that led to something, a missing link, and then men, somewhere in there there’s a monkey apparently.”
After mocking evolution as dumb and incompatible with the religious faith, even cracking a joke about the Fox series “Cosmos,” Erickson said “I see a world that is opposed to us in this room because we’re headed home to eternity, we’re just passing through.”“There is a last day, pick a side and the right side wins,” he said, adding: “You have got to love someone enough that you don’t want them to go to Hell.”
Erickson doesn’t make a very convincing man of God, I’m afraid. He apparently thinks you go to heaven by pushing financial scams on your readers and calling a Supreme Court justice a “goat-fucking child molester.” You know, just like Jesus would do.
