Still feeling the repercussions of the Phelps team here in Casper to erect a monument "celebrating" five years since the murder of Shepard and his "entering into hell". Everyone knows the general details. Shepard was a sodomite whore, seeking new partners daily, and made an obscene pass at a clean-cut young man whom Shepard thought was gay. This man got irate and later he and his friend lured Shepard out, beat him and murdered him. Tragic. Jesse Dirkhising was a 14-year old Arkansas boy who was abducted by two gay young men. He was brutally sodomized, beaten, tortured, had gas-soaked rags stuffed in his mouth to stifle his screams until he suffocated to death. Tragic. But . . Which murder garners everyone's attention? Which event is worth of hours of national news media coverage? Which gets an hour-long program on American Justice? Which murder is rehearsed over and over, year after year? Which is labeled a "hate crime"? In an attempt to be "unbiased" and not guilty of gay-bashing, we have become GROSSLY PREJUDICED and the focus of that prejudice is NOT against the sodomites. It's against Jesse Dirkhising Tragic.
