Our Father Who Art In Pencil

I was listening to the radio tonight and apparently its the 5 year anniversary of Matthew Shepherd's death. For those of you who dont remember, he was a 21 year old gay kid who got beaten to death by homophobic texans. You'd think it would be old news and the family would be left to grieve, right?


Apparently some wacked out reverend who makes a pilgrimage to the site where Matthew died every year to speak about how "God hates fags" and now hes hoping to erect a monument stating "Matthew Shepherd entered hell on October 12th not heeding God's warning. Thou shalt not lay with a man as with a woman. it is an abomination" such and such and theres some scripture. what..the fuck? isnt it bad enough that the family had to suffer but now to have the founder of the website hounding them for all eternity, trying to erect a symbol of a horrendous hate crime in a public environment? doesnt he realize that "thou shalt not kill" is a commandment and he fails to even recognize that, but apparently he can judge that poor Matthew went to hell, why? because he said so.

I think God knows whats in your heart and hes the judge. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone and all that stuff, but to keep harping about something that happened 5 years ago and to make this stupid statement to remember a hate crime is just beyond inexcusable.

I drew this in English, but i decided to dedicate it to Matthew Shepherd and to show that not all Christians are all that bad *halo*
