> This familiar story -- Matthew as a pure, meek victim of anti-gay 
> bigotry -- remains an orthodoxy unquestioned by all but the most 
> ardent gay-rights opponents. In fact, Shepard was a deeply troubled 
> young man. ... There's no question that Shepard's murder was the 
> result of bigotry. But by ignoring Shepard's flaws, supporters of gay 
> rights make a critical mistake.
