There is just too much evidence now to deny that the Matthew Shepard murder has been one of the most exploited and fictionalized incidents by an ideological movement in US history. This is a very significant development that everyone should be made aware of.

Most of the American public has been abused and used by the sad, true story that was highjacked and distorted to falsely stigmatize opponents of homosexual activity. All the angst, large public events and media saturation that has carried on for years after the brutal murder of the young man strongly appears to have been a shameless propaganda exercise by the homosexualist movement. The young, innocent appearing young man's unusually vicious murder was simply deemed too useful to not exploit to the max.

LifeSiteNews has published several reports on this development. We have tried our little bit to undo the enormous brainwashing of the American public and many legislative changes that have resulted to protect homosexual activists and punish the supposedly dangerous “homophobia” of those holding traditional American moral beliefs.

In ABC 20/20 Report Says Matthew Shepard Killed During Robbery Not Anti-Gay Hate Crime we reported that an ABC 20/20 investigation concluded that the murder of the young homosexual was in fact a bungled robbery and not motivated by hate.

In Three lies that built a revolution Michael Cook reported that “America’s sexual revolution has been built on lies. Three of the cases which transformed the legal system and altered the moral ecosystem are based on fiction: Roe v Wade, which became the foundation stone for abortion rights; Lawrence v Texas, which decriminalised sodomy and led inexorably to same-sex marriage; and the murder of Matthew Shepard, which transformed disapproval of homosexual acts into hateful homophobia.”

Today we report on what could be the definitive, final investigation on the Shepard incident. The Book of Matt by openly gay author Stephen Jiminez (who gay activists are already predictably ridiculing), has just been released. Jiminez had no intention of writing a book disproving all the claims about the Shepard incident by the gay movement, but that is the surprising result that he found from his investigation.

Jiminez contends that Shepard was not killed because of his sexual orientation and that, as summarized about his book by the gay magazine Advocate, “the perpetrator and victim not only knew each other but also had sex together, bought drugs from one another, and partied together?” His murder therefore could not have involved hatred of homosexuals.

Still, all the major US media, who have hugely covered the Shepard story numerous times when it benefitted the homosexual movement, are so far ignoring this explosive book by Jiminez. They are not about to change all that they have invested in the false narrative.

We have also noted the how extremely selective the media has been on stories on homosexual violence. Just one of many examples was the horrific murder by a co-worker of Mary Stachowicz, the saintly secretary of Springfield, IL Bishop Thomas Paprocki.

This was certainly a big news story given that the murderer, Nicholas Gutierrez, 19, was a young homosexual man whom Stachowich, a mother of four, was sincerely trying to help by urging him to change his active homosexual lifestyle.

The story of this unusual murder was covered by very few media. Bishop Poprocki, during a debate with dissident nun Sr. Jeannine Gramick on the topic of gay “marriage” before a decidedly gay-friendly crowd, lamented the fact that “there are over eleven and a half million more Internet stories about Matthew Shepard than Mary Stachowicz”, indicating “where popular sentiment lies today on the question of same-sex relationships.”

And here is the most disturbing part – the Mary Stachowicz murder story was a true story. The Matthew Shepard murder story was a largely manufactured one for the benefit of the homosexualist movement. Fiction, it seems, is greatly preferred by the media over inconvenient truth.
