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.

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?

That’s more like it.

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.

Absolutely NOTHING in this story about the fact that he was actually killed in a drug deal. Yet they have a link to a 2004 ABC News story on just that aspect.

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)...

30 Baptized Episcopalian. Gave them up a LONG time ago.

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.

He was killed in a drug deal gone bad
That's the bottom line. He was kiled by his "friends" who were just as gay as him. Tragic, but it had NOTHING absolutely NOTHING to do with "homophobia". This tragedy could've been used as a, I HATE this smarmy phrase, teachable moment as to the consequences of messing with drugs.
