Must not diss a homosexual icon

That Matthew Shepard was murdered for his homosexuality is a Leftist article of faith.  On the best evidence, however, his murder was in fact simply drug related.  That has been emphasized in a book released last month so some of the derision below might have been directed at the myth and the preaching rather than at the person

Some Ole Miss hate speech from students and football players disrupted a campus play, according to the Associated Press via Fox Sports on Oct. 3. As “The Laramie Project” was being performed on campus, some in the audience became extremely offensive and disruptive. The school is not happy, and it sounds like some players may be facing stiff consequences.

Reports indicate that throughout the play, which is about the murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998, some audience members laughed, took pictures on their phone, and some used “derogatory terms” for gay people during the performance. As those familiar with Shepard's story know, he was gay and his homosexuality was the reason for his murder.

The school has condemned the Ole Miss hate speech used by some students and athletes from the University of Mississippi. A group of football players has apologized, but some in the play apparently don't think it was genuine and that the players didn't necessarily seem to even understand what they were apologizing for.

ESPN shared additional details, indicating that The Daily Mississippi initially reported the incident. No specific student names or consequences have been detailed as of yet, but the school is investigating the reports of the Ole Miss hate speech incident. Those tied to the school seem to acknowledge the speech used was clearly inappropriate.

Will the Ole Miss hate speech incident lead to some game suspensions? It seems that is quite likely. While it seems the football players weren't the only ones involved in using derogatory language during the play, they definitely seem to be the focus of the criticism.

How much sympathy and attention would radical gay activists get if they told the truth about Shepard? So, they did what they usually do. Lie.

And 1:37 AM - how much evidence do we need that a widespread section of the populace are bigoted towards people just because they are, or even merely appear to be, homosexual, and show their bigotry in the most distasteful way (regardless of the cruel fate of the human being called "Shepard")!

It is not bigotry; it is simply disgust at abnormal, repugnant activities.

Screw Mathews Shepard and the Rainbow pervert crowd of queer freaks

It should be noted that the college investigated and found no slurs were used by the players. One has to wonder if this was a case where the producers of the play had troubles in the audience and decided to prejudge the football players.

If the play had been Passion of the Christ, or a play about the redemption of St Paul, no charges would have been filed. Uncouth behavior is only labeled as hate speech for certain protected classes.

2;55, whatever bigotry, be it real or "imagined", that exists against gays is richly deserved. They are their own worst enemies and prove it by fabricating stories and (forcing) people to accept their (abnormal) lifestyle.

The sodomite plague is a clear sign that the nation has already been cursed by God. Worse to follow.

Wow such heart-felt homophobia on this thread sounds like "the str8 doth protest too much" HA HA!

I would never do this myself but as homosexuals force their lifestyles on the rest of us you damn well better expect some push back.

People are getting tired of the double standard. YOU get to say all kinds of vile things about Christians and anyone who does not except your life choices but let some one say something to you and you get your panties in a knot!

Homosexuals no more force their lifestyle on you than you do yours on them. And Christian-church politics and dogma have totally dominated western society until relatively recently, and still have a great deal of influence.

even if it were based on his sexual choice, one murder out of a country of 320 million people is not horrific.

yeah - and the murder rate in the US sure is something to be proud about as a civilized western country. It's more like the rate in a failed and backward 3rd World state.
