I think that most people today have forgotten about the Matthew Shepherd case, so I’m not sure how much it affects today’s views.  Certainly, for those of us who remember what happened, it has an impact.  HBO had a great show on called “The Laramie Project”, which starred a lot of Hollywood heavy hitters.  It was a very emotional and touching movie, and I’d highly recommend it.  I was young when this incident happened, but I remember it really affecting me, and after I watched that movie, I realized how absolutely terrible it is for someone to be punished with death based solely on one’s sexuality.  It’s just wrong.  Many people, after the incident, did not see it the same way I did.  Some actually think that homosexuality should be punished with death.  Some are totally ok with discrimination against gays.  However, I think Matthew’s death brough gay rights to the forefront of the political agenda, albeit temporarily.
