How Did Washington Post Honor Nat’l Coming Out Day + Matthew Shepard’s Death? With Bigotry

A year ago this week, we saw The Gays run to Washington D.C. for the National Equality March. Twelve years ago this week, Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence and left to die. The Washington Post honored these anniversaries and National Coming Out Day with an editorial from hate leader FRC’s Tony Perkins, who claims, “homosexual activist groups like GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) are exploiting these tragedies to push their agenda of demanding not only tolerance of homosexual individuals, but active affirmation of homosexual conduct and their efforts to redefine the family,” and that kids being told they are born gay “may create a sense of despair that can lead to suicide.” Who else is wishing the death of newspapers would be more selective?
