As of this moment Rod Dreher has written about ten million words arguing that Andrew Sullivan cannot possibly understand what it feels like to be surrounded by people who might disapprove or even discriminate against you at work when your embarrassing secret comes out. The secret being that you hate gays.
Yes, that is basically his argument. Let it sink in for a minute.
Except that Rod does not just need to hate gays. Disapprove all day every day dude, no one cares. Rod mourns better days when he and his cultural majority could tell
negroes gays how to live and he could feel like a hero for doing it. Power over other people’s life feels really great and it sucks when that fades away. Still for the life of me I cannot understand why he keeps pestering Sullivan to acknowledge that he and his people are one arched eyebrow away from yellow stars and yarmulkes. Sullivan is being unbelievably polite as is his way, but seriously Rod. Grow up and move on.
