Another Lie From Joseph Farah
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Apparently it's Bald-Faced Lies Week at Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily column. Farah keeps up the streak in his June 18 column by asserting that Matthew Shepard "wasn't victimized because he was a homosexual."

As we've detailed, Farah's belief in this lie depends on his believing known liars and convicted killers, since believers must believe the story that Shepard's killers were peddling in 2004 that they killed Shepard as part of a robbery. 

Farah's belief in this lie means he must ignore the documented record of the Shepard case, in which one of the killers mounted a "gay panic" defense during his trial and the contents of his in-custody interview, during which he made numerous anti-gay statements (as we've also noted).

But, as is all too clear, Joseph Farah doesn't care about the truth when it conflicts with his worldview. He has no problem telling lies that advance his political agenda. That makes him the opposite of the moral Christian he portrays himself to be.
