Lest you think that title above is hyperbolic, that is pretty much a verbatim quote of what Fox's Erick Erickson said yesterday on Fox Business News with Lou Dobbs. A new study by Pew Research that showed women were the primary bread winners in 40% of American households was the cause of this uproar.

ERICKSON: “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.”

“We as people in a smart society have lost the ability to have complimentary relationships in nuclear families, and it is tearing us apart. Rreality shows us it's was harmful for women to be the primary source of income in a family.

Faux Democrat Doug Schoen would later lament that these so-called breadwinner moms would "tear society apart", to harumphs and hear-hears all around.

Erickson reacted to the disgust in characteristic fashion.
