No, if all we need was an agenda, then we could claim that Matthew Shepard's lover, McKinney,was religious and it was a hate crime, when in fact McKinney was bisexual and killed Matt over drugs and money. Meth was on McKinney's mind.
But, don't let the truth change your mind.
My point is, you have no evidence, you claim a conspiracy of "gay people" for which you have nothing.

<quoted text>You poor hopeless soul. Did I say it was founded on any one religion.
In fact, the reason we have states were because each religion got their own state.
Of thew 13 original states, the state religion of 5 was the Anglican Church of England, formerly known as the Catholics. Then there were the Amish, Puritans, Pilgrims, Presbyterians, Protestants, etc. Actually, the entire idea was that Christian religions would freely reign individually in separate states and send their religious representatives to meet and decide governing affairs.
So, you are disrespectful towards gays who try to impose their immorality upon others and even children based on lustful fantasies. Understood.
I say, like the Mormons, Puritans, Pilgrims, etc. let the gays have an island in the Atlantic ocean. A vacant island, which is prone to hurricanes and tsunamis. With the short gay life span, most gays would not even feel the effects. Let them be free, free of our morality, free of our laws and free of our governing bodies.
Yes there were a lot of religious people in the US, but the US was not founded upon any religion, not our constitution, not our laws.

Why donít you go get yourself an island and proclaim your religious country there.

Our founders coined the phrase "Separation of Church and state", The father of the revolution actually signed a document stating that this nation was not in any way founded upon Christianity while he was president.

You go live on your island if you want, I live in the land of the free, a land of justice and equality.

You may be in the wrong country, there are however countries that do enforce their religion, where religion controls the nations laws, perhaps the Taliban is accepting applications.

You wont have your theocracy here.

You can have your island in the middle of the Hurricanes and such.. your imaginary playmate will protect you

http://abcnews.go.com/m/story... Murder
Jan 6, 2006, 12:29 AM
Six years ago, on a cold October night on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyo., 21-year-old gay college student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left for dead. He was found 18 hours later and rushed to the hospital, where he lingered on the edge of death for nearly five days before succumbing to his injuries.

The story garnered national attention when the attack was characterized as a hate crime. But Shepard's killers, in their first interview since their convictions, tell "20/20's" Elizabeth Vargas that money and drugs motivated their actions that night, not hatred of gays.

While Shepard lay unconscious in a hospital, the national press quickly arrived in Laramie. Cal Rerucha, who prosecuted the case, told Vargas the media descended on Laramie "like locusts."

"We knew in the newsroom the day it happened, this is going to be a huge story, this is going to attract international interest," said Jason Marsden of "The Casper Star-Tribune."

"I remember one of my fellow reporters saying,'this kid is going to be the new poster child for gay rights," he added. News of Shepard's death sparked reaction overseas and demonstrations across America.

"I think a lot of gay people, when they first heard of that horrifying event, felt sort of punched in the stomach. I mean it kind of encapsulated all our fears of being victimized," said writer Andrew Sullivan, a prominent gay rights advocate.

But as the push for gay rights found new force, so did a corresponding backlash from anti-gay opponents who came from out of state to grab a piece of the media spotlight.

Tensions were so high that Shepard's father wore a bulletproof vest under his suit when he spoke at his son's funeral service.

"The saddest part of this whole case was at Matthew's funeral, when they, these people, refused to let Matthew be buried with dignity," said Rerucha. "I never saw people that could hate so much."

Killers Both Receive Two Consecutive Life Sentences

Local residents Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson, both 21 at the time, were charged with Shepard's murder. Henderson's case came before the court first. To avoid the possibility of receiving the death penalty, he pleaded guilty to murder and kidnapping and received two consecutive life terms in prison.

McKinney's case went to trial a year after Shepard's death. He was convicted of felony murder, aggravated robbery and kidnapping. Before the jury was about to decide his sentence, he, too, reached a deal that allowed him to avoid a possible death penalty. Both men are serving double life sentences in prison.

Authorities asked "20/20" not to disclose the prison location.

While McKinney and Henderson admit to killing Shepard, both men -- and the man who prosecuted the case -- now say the real story is not what it seemed.

Many area residents were shocked that the crime was committed by two young men from their community. But both McKinney and Henderson came from classically troubled backgrounds.

Henderson was born to a teenage alcoholic and raised without a father. He says he saw his mother being beaten up by a series of boyfriends, some of whom also assaulted Henderson.

McKinney's childhood, too, was less than picture-perfect. His father, a long-haul trucker, was rarely home and eventually divorced McKinney's mother, a nurse who later died as a result of a botched surgery. McKinney received a malpractice settlement of nearly $100,000 after his mother's death. He says he spent most of that money on things like cars and drugs.

McKinney admits to Vargas that by the time he was 18 he had a serious methamphetamine habit.

The legislation, Assembly Bill 188, by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, had support from school disticts and California tax payer groups.

This action would close a loophole that has deprived schools and local governments of much-needed revenue, but was (of course) opposed by business and the (communist chapter) California Chamber of Commerce.
