Judy Shepard Deemed Too Much of a Grieving Mother To Discuss Gays
North Carolina's Appalachian State University will not have students read Judy Shepard's book The Meaning of Matthew: My Son's Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed over the summer, because it is homophobic.

What a crock of salamander manure? Why doesn't this Staley b*tch identify these two or ask them to self-identify? I bet they are homophobes pretending to be liberals.

By coincidence, I just finished reading this book two days ago. Judy Shepard brought me to tears in many chapters of her book. She was forthright in her son's shortcomings, and cleared away the mist which shaded his life. He was not the All-American boy that most preceived him to be, but was just like the rest of us.....struggling through a difficult period. She brought him to life again and showed him as he truly was. That said, she also showed how his death was just as wasteful and sorrowful as we thought. Maybe even more so. Why anyone would not want to reccomend this book is beyond me. I will probably read it two or three times, just to make sure I don't miss anything.
