Angry Nutjob Erick Erickson Attacks Media Matters for Hating Jesus, Eating Twinkies
Gawker’s coverage made me laugh. My proposed title:
What Would Jesus Eat? According to Erick, Anything But Twinkies.
Via the Media Matters blog, the beef with Erickson stems from a ridiculous screed he posted on his website redstate.com on Tuesday, in which he lamented the lack of Jesus talk in the wake of the Arizona shooting, because everyone needs Jesus:
Through it all though, well meaning people on both sides of the ideological mnd partisan divide are not talking about the one thing that should be talked about — a saving faith in Jesus Christ.”
Media Matters kindly pointed out that not everyone in America is a Christian — like Rep. Giffords, who is Jewish — and maybe suggesting that her shooting proves that everyone needs to be saved by Jesus Christ isn’t appropriate. This blasphemous assertion set Erickson off:
The atheists and twinkie eaters at Media Matters, also known as the Westboro Baptist D.C. Branch, are enraged that I dared mention Jesus and the absence of discussing him in the debate over Arizona.”
Yes, Erick. It’s merely your mention of Jesus that got people angry.
Are there any circumstances when Erick thinks it ISN’T appropriate to mention Jesus? I just want to be clear for the next bar mitzvah I attend.
