We were discussing nature's purpose for sex.

That's not what you posted.

By the way, that is not a link to the "ABC report", it's a link to someone's uninformed opinion post on a forum.

And yes, Matthew Shepherd was murdered because he was gay. Read the trial transcripts.
Here is a link to the ABC 20/20 report.


http://abcnews.go.com/2020/story?id=277685&page=1



It is lengthy but gives a different view of how the encounter with Shepard and the murder actually came about. The trial prosecuted the crime as a "hate crime" against a gay. The information 20/20 presents is post-trial and is worth reading.

This thread is not about Matt Shepherd. If you feel the need to drag Through the mud the reputation of a young man who died a violent death (so noble to do), you should start another thread.

No he wasn't, you're spreading a lie. ABC debunked that myth years ago, it was a drug deal and robbery gone bad, plain and simple. Heck, the limo driver said that the punks even pulled " tricks" with Shepherd to score meth. I watched the entire report when it first came out. The murder was horrific and those punks should get the death penalty, but to say he was killed because he was gay is a blatant lie. You were lied to and are now guilty of unwittingly spreading that lie.

It wasn't a personal attack. If you believe that homosexuality is evil or an abomination - and I think you've used those words to describe it - then you have something in common with fundamentalist Muslims. That's all I was saying.

I've been suspended before, quite recently actually. What Angel and the Dolphin said about me and my parenting skills was disgraceful and one of the worst personal attacks that I have ever seen here. It was finally deleted, but he was stll allowed to post and in his very next post quoting me, he implied that I am a part of that kook Westboro church and called me vile. For whatever reason, the post is still there.
