Twenty years ago, Matthew Shepard was a "smart, funny" 21-year-old, no different than any other young man that age. He was an "ordinary kid who wanted to make the world a better place," his parents remembered. But in October 1998, that all changed, when the openly gay college student was abducted, beaten and tied to a fence in Wyoming. His life ended a few days later, and with it came a widespread awareness of the dangers that members of the LGBTQ community face every day. The homophobic brutal killing also served as a catalyst for progress in America's laws and culture.

ABC Employing the “let’s dig him up every 10 years” Emmet Till method.
Why, Mikey was the little kid who liked Life cereal. The essence of innocence and virtue.
Why is ABC carrying on with the lie?
It is in the essence of their being.
It is who they are and what they do.
More fake news.
Don’t know if the murder of James Byrd Jr was a lie.
The National Cathedral has become a parody and a sick joke. They allowed a Muslim service to be conducted there recently. They also allow all manner of perversion and debasement of Christianity.
Perhaps the interment is fitting?
A homosexual drug dealer.
He was also a confirmed pedophile.
Baptized Episcopalian. Gave them up a LONG time ago.
Matthew Shepard: The legacy of a gay drug dealer 20 years after his brutal murder.
That’s more like it.
I thought he was a drug dealer?
The fact that the media is still talking about the death of a single gay men 20 years later speaks volumes of what a non problem violence against homosexuals is.
We all note that all of us capable of reading know that Sheppard was a drug dealer.
Now, since the low-T and IQ broadcast crowd does not know this, it would appear that perhaps they have a thinking problem.
“His life ended a few days later, and with it came a widespread awareness of the dangers that members of the LGBTQ community face every day.”
Yeah. Like the three gay church members that attended church with Obama.
Thanks but your post seems to say that Dirkhising was murdered 20 years after the murder of Shephard, Jesse Dirkhising died Sept 26, 1999.
Dirkhising’s murder at the age of thirteen is far more of a horror story than the murder of Shephard but Dirkhising was a white teenager killed by two GAY men so of course it is ignored by the media. It is the most powerful proof of media bias that I am aware of.
After skimming and searching the article, I see no reason for this being posted in Breaking News (no mention of his ashes or the National Cathedral)...
Ditto. NOV 2003 - right after the ECUSA Presiding Bishop consecrated the newly elected, openly-homosexual (who had left his wife with whom he had 2 grown daughters) diocesan bishop of New Hampshire.
