Matthew Shepard Was Not Killed for Being "Gay"
on 13 October 2013
It is time to withdraw this book from the market.
Not just because it is distasteful for a mother to make a profit out of the murder of her son in 1998 - though doubtless there were unscrupulous publishers who saw the market opportunities and got it ghost-written for her.
The reason it should be withdrawn is that new research proves that Matthew Shepard was NOT killed for being homosexual. He was killed by another homosexual man because of a dispute about drugs and money. And Matthew had been having sexual relations with the man who killed him. It;s still a tragedy - but not the kind of tragedy that was made out. Heterosexuals are not responsible. We are not guilty. We do not bully and bash homosexuals. Moral people have been blamed, demonized, denigrated, furiously slandered and denounced as "haters" ....and all the time it was a lie.
See The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths about the Murder of Matthew Shepard", by Stephen Jimenez. You can buy it on Amazon.
