Fox's Erick Erickson: It's 'Anti-Science' To No...
Appearing on a Fox Business panel Wednesday evening, Fox contributor Erick Erickson suggested it is "anti-science" to reject the biological claim that men should be in the "dominant" role in the nuclear family.
This particular panel segment of Lou Dobbs Tonight took on a recent Pew study claiming that mothers are now the primary source of income in 40 percent of American households. Dobbs characterized the findings as "troubling" while panelist Juan Williams asserted that it indicates "something going terribly wrong in American society."
Erickson added to that by suggesting female breadwinners are antithetical to biology:
"I'm so used to liberals telling conservatives that they're anti-science. But liberals who defend this and say it is not a bad thing are very anti-science. When you look at biology — when you look at the natural world — the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it's not antithesis, or it's not competing, it's a complementary role."
He continued on to lament that "We as people in a smart society have lost the ability to have complementary relationships in nuclear families, and it is tearing us apart."
He concluded: "Having mom as primary bread winner is bad for kids and bad for marriage."
