I'm not convinced of much of anything by the article. Without having read the book, which seems to serve no purpose but to possibly make a little money, it looks like a collection of random hearsay and such highly reliable sources as an "anonymous letter." Looks like "the high journalistic standards" are comparable to the National Enquirer, World News Daily, or Fox.
The site promoting it was clearly anti-gay, polarizing, and radical. Promoting prejudice seems to be the motivation.

Our desire to make sense out of it, requires overlooking that hate based on prejudice is irrational. Robbery was a motive for money, but it should be clear this torture murder was motivated by irrational hate, not money, drugs, or other excuses.

To what final purpose is this book written? Will it right a wrong? Will it free some innocent from prison after years of incarceration?

It will be held as gospel by the right-wing. It will make this gay traitor some money. It will cause even more pain and suffering to Matt's family and friends.

Yes, Mr. Jimenez, you should be so proud of what you're doing.

Wat have you done today to make you feel proud???

If you believe homophobia is not real, you must be short on comprehension skills.

Here is a little starter - you can read the rest for yourself:

Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, may be based on irrational fear, and is sometimes related to religious beliefs.

Wiki might also add "ignorance" to their description.

That has nothing to do with this case.

There has not been the slightest suggestion the confessions of the killers were coerced, nor any of the testimony of the witness at the trial who testified they were planning to rob a gay person. Again, even the killer admits the killing was based on hate for gay people.

Who cares? All murder is wrong. Just because this kid liked boys doesn't make him special. He doesn't deserve special attention any more than any other murder victim.

Most murder victims don't get tied to a fence and left to die in the cold either. This is the same thing as seeing black men hung in trees. It needs special attention.

The crucifixion torture and imagery make it stand out from shooting deaths. Torture demonstrates extreme hate.

Hate crimes are a from of terrorism.

Hate crimes are not based merely on neglect, opportunity, need, greed, or emotional outburst, but are the result of ongoing hate for an entire group of people. Hate crimes therefore have the effect and usually the intent, of intimidating, terrorizing and punishing an entire community, not just the direct victim.

That makes them very different from crimes of neglect, opportunity, need, greed, and even crimes of passion.

Writing specific prohibitions into the law, clearly establishes community standards, and in doing so, helps remove the motivation and justification used by ideology assailants to harm others.

"Ideology assailants report that their crimes stem from their negative beliefs and attitudes about homosexuality that they perceive other people in the community share. They see themselves as enforcing social morals." (APA)

No it doesn't. Welcome to the real world. How about that gay cannibal, Jeffery Dahmer, his victims deserve more notoriety than Sheppard, how many of his victims can you name? They were tortured, raped, killed and eaten.

That's a straw man argument. Can't you stay focused? There is no comparison.

But no one is writing a book, claiming that those victims of Dahmer deserved to die because they were gay. Evil is all around. The author of the supposed book is just blaming the victim, and making money from printed lies.

Yes it does! You, like your fellow Christ-insanity-ists have no knowledge of the real world because you all see reality backwards. First and foremost Jeffery Dhamer was a Christian. A church attending, Bible believing, pew warming Christian.

What made Jeffery what he was was the homophobia of Christ-insanity. Had he grown up around normal people,[people who include homosexuals] he most likely would never have gone off into his fantasy world and acted out on his delusions.

But because the world is full of Christ-insanity-ists, Jeffery could never deal with his homosexuality and what he did is the result of Christ-insanity and not his homosexuality.

GOD: "And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat" (Lev. 26:29) and

GOD: "I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend...." (Jer. 19:9) and

GOD: "I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine" (Isa. 49:26 RSV) and

GOD: "Therefore fathers shall eat their sons in the midst of you, and sons shall eat their fathers...." (Ezek. 5:10).

You can't blame a homosexual orientation when clearly Christ-insanity is to blame.

Damn, sounds like the author is getting ready to run for political office. I wonder which political party he will run under?
