So I remember the news coverage of Matt and went into this hesitant. After watching it I must say it was very well done and Matt’s father reading his statement toward the end was very moving. I hope one day we will no longer need these because humans evolve past this hate
A profoundly moving film
This film was profoundly moving. As a gay man and as a Christian, it angers me that Matthew was killed by prejudice and ignorance. That ignorance stretches towards the ‘Christian’ woman he met who threatened him with Hell when he came to a church for help and advice. I am angry at the Westboro Baptist Church who picketed his funeral, and who continue to do so at the funerals of gay people in America. They have no right.
God loves Matthew Shephard. He also loves each and every gay person in the world, including myself. I am at peace with that. The Bible teaches love and tolerance. Does God condemn homosexuality? Many ‘Christians’ will point to one specific verse which says yes to that question. However the Bible was written within an historical and cultural context. God does not change but people and time do. There are many things that God does not approve of but He still has an overwhelming sense of love for all His people, no matter their culture, sexuality, race or class. He preaches love for one another above everything else, and that we should love ourselves also.
To any gay people reading this please know that God does love you. For those of you who are homophobic, God loves you too. We need to stop judging each other.
This documentary made by one of Matthew’s friends is beautifully put together and enables the viewer to understand and see the person Matthew was. I hope all are touched by the film and that it enables all of us to be more tolerant. It is an awful shame Matthew died. However, his life, his death, and the work that was inspired by his story, is a legacy to him and to all those living in fear because of careless ignorance from others.
God bless you Matthew Shephard, you are loved by so many.
