There was nothing fake about his death. The facts are well established, despite frequent attempts to re-write history. And hate crimes continue to happen every day. His mother is one reason we remember Matthew as a symbol for all others.
His mother realized her son was tortured to death because he was gay, and decided to not let his death go un noticed and quickly forgotten.
Anti-gay hate crimes happen every day, but the worst of them remind us how senseless and harmful prejudice can be. The crucifixion imagery in this one is inescapable. I believe these factors contributed to Matthew becoming a symbol for anti-gay hate crimes. Trying to remember each one is just too painful.
The implication they don't exist is absurd.
His mother wasn't there and likely blinded to the real Matt.

You don't know squat, you know what the dishonest dirtbags in the LSM tell you, maybe you should read the book, or at least refute what the author claims/reports.
Shepard was heavily into meth and drug dealing. Fact.
Oh, Stupor Steve, like you read the book. Such an angry little cyber troll.

What did he do to deserve being tortured to death?

Murderer: "Matt Shepard needed killing" - The Denver Post http://www.denverpost.com/entertainment/ci_13... The killer admits it was a hate crime.

The trial showed anti-gay hate was the motivation for the murder, and the killers now admit that. Hate crimes happen every day. We just don't want to admit it, and that is why many look for excuses for this brutal crucifixion.

There are none.

The book refutes all of your claims. The dishonest dirtbags in the LSM and the GLAD crowd jumped on the opportunity to further their agenda. Shepard was a nasty little weasel who used and dealt in meth and other drugs. He was killed because he wouldn't front the killers some of a big shipment he just received.

No drugs, no murder.

Again, the killer admits they crucified Matt because he was gay.

Again, hate crimes happen every day. Whether you belive hate was the motiveation is irrelevant. Nothing justifies crucifiction.

I didn't mean to criticize. Rather than reply to the hate trolls this topic draws, I decided to respond to you and expand on your post.
I don't know much about the book or the author, but just about the article referenced here. It is anti-gay, and it makes the claim the author is gay, but that's it. I also only know what the book says from the anti-gay blog cited here. I don't know what the author claims. What I do know, is the killers admitted they targeted him for robbery because he was gay, and tortured him to death because of hate for gay people.
While clear the motivation of the blog site cited here promoting the book is promotion of prejudice, I don't know enough about the book or book author to guess at his motivation.
The reminder that regardless of the motivation the effects remain the same, was for those who want to use this book to excuse torture murder.
Understood. Thanks for clarifying.

I try to ignore the "hate trolls" as well... but in this case, they are the same creatures who murdered Mat and deny he was killed for being gay. Now one is even denying he was actually murdered. I sometimes feel sorry for people who are so sick with such irrational hatred.

No drugs, no murder.
So just because some book prints some crazy theory it's a fact?

I guess you also believe that everything a racist group publishes is a "fact".

BTW who really killed JFK? Ever read all the books about that crime? How do you know which is true?

I find it interesting that you are trying so hard to say it wasn't because Matt was gay when the murderers themselves say that was the motive. THAT is the FACT!

Right. And Dan killed Harvey because he ate too many twinkies!

Bet you even have video proof of Bigfoot, The Loch Ness Monster and the Alien Autopsy at Roswell.

Wyoming Workers Compensation Division defrauding injured Herto-sexual workers. Michael Christoffersen is a graduate of the University of Wyoming A gay icon working for the State of Wyoming. If Matthew Shepard would of survived I have no doubt he would be working for the Wyoming Workmans Compensation as a Claims Analyst ripping off injured of disability benefits and probably be best Butt Buddies with Michael Christoffersen. Homosexual people also discriminate against Herto-sexual people. It goes both ways Michael Christoffersen is a proven fraud just like Matthew Sheppard would of turned out to have been if he graduated from UW.
