Dr. Laura’s Twisted Family Values
It seems that the great moralist and promoter of “family values” Dr. Laura Schlessinger is having some family dram of her own. Her 21 year old son Deryk is under investigation for a graphic MySpace page that includes cartoons of rape, torture, murder and child molestation. The page was recently taken offline, but here is a taste of what was there:
“Yes . . . F—ING Yes!!!” said one blog entry on the Schlessinger site. “I LOVE MY JOB, it takes everything reckless and deviant and heathenistic and just overall bad about me and hyper focuses these traits into my job of running around this horrid place doing nasty things to people that deserve it . . . and some that don’t.”
Dr. Laura has made her money and fame by becoming the female Rush Limbaugh and bashing others for their moral and ethical failures. She is also a vocal opponent of LGBT civil rights particularly marriage (even thoug she has had multple marriages and extramarital affairs.
She is now asking that the media and the public respect her son’s privacy even as she became a millionaire by loudly butting into the details of other people’s lives. Ummm, yeah sure we will.
This is a clear sign that she should be spending more time worrying about her family’s values that worrying about whether or not a same-sex couple should be able to marry.
