Erick Erickson Bans Me, Canít Resist Condemning Roy Moore
Fairfax Free Citizen ^ | December 4, 2017 | Jonathon A Moseley

Posted on 12/04/2017 6:53:53 AM PST by Moseley

Roy Moore will win the U.S. Senate special election, #NeverTrump-er Erick Erickson reluctantly concedes. Yet The Resurgent still feels compelled to attack the Republican nominee while muddying its prior position about the accusations. Of course, when he ran it, Erickson banned candidate Donald Trump from Red State’s national conference for similar reasons.

The false allegations against Judge Roy Moore, aiming to derail his challenge to the establishment, are also revealing the fault lines between the genuine and the superficial throughout the conservative movement.

Then Erick Erickson banned me on Saturday from The Resurgent while he was acting as the arbiter of Christian values. But my analysis here is not about one man. We are seeing this phenomenon unfolding throughout the conservative movement, of which this is only a symbol.

I posted a comment that a Christian must observe the commandment “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” Immediately The Resurgent sent me a “Ban Notification.” I reminded readers that if Christians were supposed to just believe every allegation anyone hurls, why would God waste one of the Ten Commandments on “Thou shalt not bear false witness?” Proverbs 18:17 warns us “The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him.” The Bible teaches us that we can form no opinion without listening to both sides.

The entire conservative movement is embroiled in discussing morality and Christian / conservative values about Roy Moore without addressing the most fundamental value of all: Did it happen? If you do not base your chest-thumping on truth, what kind of morality is that? Many skip past the only question that counts: What is the actual truth?

I asked in my comment what still needs to be addressed. Erickson wrote “The problem is that many of the accusers tell plausible stories.” This is about story-telling ability? Christians want to visit harm on people based only on who tells a good story? A “plausible” story is not a fact nor evidence. Of course, the stories are not actually plausible. They are sharply contradicted by all the evidence. But it is disturbing the values and standards being crowed by those claiming the mantle of conservative or Christian values, while attacking a man with 40 years of fighting for God.

St. Augustine, the profound Christian scholar, lived 20 years as a sinful child of hell. How can we study St. Augustine’s teachings about Christianity knowing that for 20 years before his conversion he was a sinner and reprobate? Modern Pharisees want to hang Roy Moore but revere the writings of St. Augustine who admits 20 years of sin.

Roy Moore has lived the last 40 years as a devoted, sincere, Christian, sold out for God, laying it on the line, and risking his own career and reputation to stand up for God. Although allegations from 38 years ago are contradicted by known evidence, even if they were true Roy Moore’s 40 years as a devout Christian would matter in a Christian world view. George Will, Bill Kristol, Erick Erickson, and other moralizers have never risked their careers for Jesus.

Erickson’s attitude is one reason he was tuned out. Lost lots of readers, subscribers and followers.

I still contend that if ANY of this were true it would have surfaced when he was fighting to keep the ten commandments etal on the Courthouses.

What better way to ‘disgrace’ a ‘Bible Thumper’ than to reveal he is a degenerate?

Lack of any in-depth analysis of Roy Moore’s past political campaigns, this whole ordeal really is an amatuer political hit job! Unfortunately d-bags like Erickson all all too willing to buy into it! Why?

I agree. What matters to me is what he's doing NOW, and what he is likely to do in the future, not who he was dating 40 years ago.

Erickson is a Cheap Labor Express propagandist.
He should be ignored.

I guess Erick the Red still has shovel in hand, continuing to seek the bottom of the hole he’s dug for himself while losing his Rush substitute gig and Herman Cain substitute gig. Must be lonely at the top of Virtue Signaling Mountain where he believes himself to be rather than the bottom of the Pit of Despair.

Dilly, Dilly!!

What matters to Alabama voters, is what he’s doing NOW, and what he is likely to do in the future, not who he was dating 40 years ago.

Why?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To protect the 30 year bipartisan policy of non-enforcement of laws and borders and the demographic changes that policy has made to the country.

Erickson is Saddam Hussein’s love child. He can’t overcome his dictatorial impulses.

Erickson is all about Erickson. Red State, The Resurgent rags trying to set the standard for Conservative though but fail miserably by aligning itself with the likes of Alred, CNN and Democrats. All this so they can be invited back to cocktail parties by the Republican establishment. God forbid they want to hang with us blue collar lemings!

Erickson is a red, fat faced fraud.

The Jones commercials are laughable....he sounds like a 3rd grader in the schoolyard.....every time they come on now I mute the TV or radio.....never mentions being a Dim, says nobody (Schumer, etc) owns him, he’s going to serve the people of Alabama, etc., etc. Starts it by saying “Moore is saying mean things about me”.....LOL

Erick Erickson banning anyone is for those so affected, a badge of honor.

Myself and Mr GG2 are banned from Ericks FB page for skewering him when he disinvited Trump from his red state forum and said he would not let his daughter alone in the same room as Trump. :-)

He also is a fat slob, a disgrace to humans everywhere. This piece of human garbage really has no business stealing our valuable oxygen.

Erick Erickson has been an anti-Trump from the beginning of Trump’s campaign in 2016.

Erick Erickson is worse than McCain or Graham by a magnitude.

Ignore this immature child.
