New book exposes truth behind purported hate crime victim

The media is ignoring a book that presents the truth about the gruesome murder of a Wyoming homosexual.

“The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard” was written by Steve Jimenez ,who is also homosexual.

Activists have used the 1998 slaying if Shepard to gain sympathy for their cause, pushing it as a hate crime, but Jimenez contends that's not the case.

LaBarbera, PeterPeter LaBarbera, who heads Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says that the story of Shepard was “far different” from what was portrayed, including accusations of drug addiction and being promiscuous.

“He practiced reckless sex. He had HIV/AIDS,” says LaBarbera. “And so the story was never true, but it didn't stop the media from using Matthew Shepard to push the entire homosexual agenda.

Yet the media has largely ignored the new book on the tragic murder.

Why?

“Well, the media now is practically part of the homosexual movement,” says LaBarbera. “The media always promotes what the homosexual lobby wants it to promote and it hides the negatives, and this clearly is a negative.”

LaBabera notes that even the homosexual magazine The Advocate, after reviewing this book by Jimenez, “said that after 10 years maybe the myth has outlived its usefulness.”

Yet the State Department under the Obama Administration has financed trips to Europe by Shepard's parents to use the myth to spread the message of tolerance of the homosexual lifestyle.
