Our hearts ache for this guy. We can't even imagine the pain he is feeling, inside and out.
While you were probably out have a great time at a Halloween party on Sunday, this guys was being tortured ruthlessly by bigots, simply because he's gay.
Burke Burnett, a 26-year-old openly gay man in Reno, Texas was viciously attacked by some fellow partiers this weekend when he rubbed a group of man the wrong way. Understand that Burke did nothing but arrive at the party with some friends, leave, then return with another person, a close girl friend, before he was jumped by four guys, who had no mercy to show the man they called a “pussy-ass faggot,” “gay bitch” and “cock-sucking punk.”
According to Burke (and there are clearly pictures to prove it) he was relentlessly beaten by the man in the face, before the stabbed him TWICE with a broken beer bottle, once in the back and then in the arm. They then threw his weak body into a fire, where he sustained second degree burns. He also needed to have 30 stitches to close stab wounds to his back and forearm, as well as a cut above his left eye. (above)
Unfortunately, no arrests have been made at this time, but police have assured the public they are investigating the situation.
The unimaginable things that simple-minded people will do. Just look at that poor kid. He deserves that. He deserves such violence brought upon. Why? WHY?! To make those four guys feel like men? To try and rid the world of something that don't understand, so it must be bad?!
If everything is bigger in Texas, than we imagine these guys are the biggest homophobes in our country. We hope they pay for their ignorance.
