A Fox News contributor has written a column comparing the gay rights movement to ISIS, saying the only difference is “death”.

Erick Erickson, who contributes to Fox News, also founded, wrote a column titled “The Line Between Islamic Extremists and Gay Rights Extremists”, on the site.

On the difference between Islamic State extremists and gay rights campaigners, he writes: “The divide between Islamic extremists and gay rights extremists is at death. They meet on the line at destruction.”

In it, he also mentions florist Barronelle Stutzman, who was earlier this was found to have discriminated against a gay couple as she refused to provide flowers for their wedding, suggesting it would be unfair to make her pay a penalty for “putting her faith into practice”.

He writes: “Both her customer and the State of Oregon are taking everything she has for not bowing at the altar of sexual sin.”

“Islamic extremists take lives because of the Islamic extremists’ beliefs,” Erickson continues. “They will take life for being offended. There will be no magnanimity and there will be no mercy.”

Concluding, he writes: “Christians have more children than homosexuals. We also have a God who stands with us, loves us, and will see us through to eternity.”

Erickson, also a former CNN pundit claimed that the US government is spending money on researching “fat lesbians” instead of trying to cure Ebola.
