Erick Erickson calls gay rights movement "totalitarian"

Erick Erickson
Right Wing polemicist Erick Erickson is angry. To express that anger he offers us, on Friday, Too Soon to Go Full Totalitarian. When did gay rights activists become a dictatorial government? Yeah, I know, Obama's evolving opinion on same-sex marriage is tyranny and Erickson seems particularly upset with Frank Bruni:
In the New York Times, liberal columnist Frank Bruni insists that Christians must be "made" to change their church doctrines on sexual immorality, doctrines that are 2,000 years old. Bruni actually quoted a gay rights advocate that "church leaders must be made to take homosexuality off their sin list." Bruni called this "worthy" and "warranted."
So what? Mr. Bruni is hardly in a position to change Church doctrine. He certainly does not pose a threat to conservative Christians or their beliefs.

Erickson concludes his tedious piece:
Americans can disagree on gay marriage. The Supreme Court declaring it legal and imposing it on states that voted to prohibit it will not, like with abortion, change church doctrines that have existed for 2,000 years. The faithful will not suddenly redact First Corinthians or Matthew 15:19 from the Bible.

In a nation that has prided itself on individuality and free conscience, it seems we should allow the mom-and-pop shop of committed Christians to opt out of gay weddings. But, even before Anthony Kennedy rules, we are seeing that will not happen. The gay rights movement, a part of the left, is showing its totalitarian nature.
Apparently when Frank Bruni writes things that Mr. Erickson doesn't like in conjunction with the LGBT community's objections to discrimination — that constitutes “totalitarianism.” Seriously?
