Rod Dreher. Why? In East Texas, a family is horrifically murdered by the boyfriend of the daughter in the family murdered. The Mother's throat is cut with a sword that almost decapitates her. The father is shot multiple times. The 13-year-old son is murdered. What point of the story does Dreher focus on? In recounting the story of his family's drama, the father mentions that when his children first began school in this little town, another girl had a crush on his daughter and the father was somewhat shocked.
"I guess you'd call it culture shock," Caffey said. "Emory has a lot of bisexual kids; it's like it was almost cool to be bisexual. One of the first things that happened was some girl wanted to be Erin's little girlfriend. And I was like, 'That ain't happenin'.' "
That's it. No lurid details. No story that the girl persisted. In fact, daughter went on to develop an inappropriate relationship with a heterosexual young man who ultimately murders two members of the family and seriously injures the father.
So, what shocks Dreher about this horrible crime? That bi-sexuality exists in small towns in East Texas. Bi-sexuality is more shocking to him that the murders. Talk about low-life creeps obsessed by homosexuality? Jeez! Dreher is a sick, sick, person. (Courtesy of Andrew Sullivan.)
