Ann+ Wonders, “Is that what happened to Jesus?”

October 15, 2008

Ann+ has an essay up at the Daily Episcopalian, Re-member-ing Matthew Shephard.  The essay talks about the 10 year anniversary of his awful death, and how, in becoming the poster child for heinous hate crime, his life story has lost much of what made him “Matthew Shephard” to those who loved him personally. He is becoming mythologized – with his death overwhelming his life. His individuality lost to the greater good.

And she wonders, “Is that what happened to Jesus?”

Do go give it a read. It’s wonderful!
