It wasnt until Judy and Dennis Shepard were sitting on the plane, leaving their home state of Wyoming for the nations capital, carrying their sons ashes, that the feeling sank in.
Matts moving away now, Judy Shepard, 66, recalled thinking as the flight took off earlier this week.
Twenty years after their son, Matthew Shepard, was brutally pistol-whipped and left to die on a buck-rail fence in a cold Wyoming prairie, making him a lasting symbol of the gay rights movement, his parents were on their way to lay his remains to rest in a crypt in Washington National Cathedral.

Earlier this year, a team from the Smithsonian visited the Shepards in their home in Wyoming. They came to look through Matthew Shepards belongings, a trove of childhood memories and mementos from his everyday life. The Shepards had agreed to donate a collection of their sons personal items for preservation at the Smithsonians National Museum of American History, a donation the museum is receiving today.
The article is silence on the real reason Shephard was murdered. It had nothing to do with Shephard being homo but it was it a drug deal gone wrong. But the Leftist narrative that Shephard was a victim of a hate crime was established early and the Left is invested in that narrative; the noble lie.
Next to Trayvon?
Matthew Shepard was an AIDS-addled, drug-addicted debtor who did ANYTHING to push methamphetamines and coke on his community in order to keep using.
An American hero.
His ashes do NOT belong in any sacred space!!!!
His parents and supporters should give us believers a break, for once! Lord have mercy!!!!
I didn’t realize he had been canonized by the Church.
Surely, that fag congressman can get a Purple Heart for Shepard. America. You’re sick.
The National Cathedral has abandoned any pretense of being a sacred space a long time ago.
Matthew Shepard: Another vile left-wing fake news lie. Shame on the Washington Cathedral for allowing this farce.
You’re right! But both Shepard and one of his murderers were “gay”!!!!
Homosexuality is what is sacred in the NWO. I’m sure drug abuse also ranks high up there as a virtue.
Hey, when your movement lacks real heroes a dead drug dealer with a made up heroic story will have to do.
Screw the Smithsonian.
Damn lib’s are just like cockroaches, when you see one, you known that there are thousands in the shadow waiting to warp the truth an reshape history.
I heard that the Smithsonian even has the ‘Blue Dress’.
And to make matters even more squalid, the crackpots at the Smithsonian will collude with them and compound the indecent dishonesty.
That makes things even WORSE!!!!
At least it is—and was—not an Orthodox Temple! When we concentrate one, we pray that it will endure until the end of the Universe!!!!
“He was hung on a barbed-wire fence..!”
No he wasn’t.
He had his hands tied and he was SITTING. Sitting dead, yeah.
It’s just that hanging from a barbed-wire fence makes him somehow Christ-Like, and secular fundmentalism needs heroic images.
A million places have repeated that stupid HangingFromAfence story and it is a COMPLETE LIE.
Washington National Cathedral is an Episcopal church.
Just imagine the honor of.being interred in the National Cathedral! And all for a drug transaction gone wrong! See what being part of a valued minority can do for you!
Yup, it takes a sleazy pub like the Post to totally disregard the book by a gay person with courage and some ability to do real investigation. That book showed that Shepards was a drug dealer. He was killed in a drug deal.
We’re going to have to extend scientific notation to adequately describe the sleaze of the Wa Po jokesters. Thankfully, they already live in the sewer with the rest of the nation’s disease.
They are not about to lay their son to rest at the National Cathedral. He has been cremated. There is nothing to lay to rest.
