Matthew Shepard was a gay man murdered in WY. Is it true that one of the murderers was Mormon?
Benson “Matthew Shepard was a gay University of Wyoming student in Laramie, WY. He was tortured, abandoned, and crucified. He ultimately died at the hands of some homophobic young men. 7,8 One was Russell Henderson who is serving two life sentences after having pleaded guilty to the kidnapping and murder. Henderson was a Mormon, and was presumably motivated by the church’s teachings on homosexuality. 9 He has since been excommunicated by his church.” from http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_cul1.
