A gay man whose horrific murder has become synonymous with "hate crime" may have been killed over drugs, not homophobia, according to a book written by a gay researcher.
An Illinois judge accused of heroin and gun possession stepped down from the bench Wednesday, weeks after after a fellow judge died of a cocaine overdose while the two were on a hunting trip.
Cook, 43, admitted he has been a drug addict but insisted he was sober when he told U.S. District Judge Joe Billy McDade he was pleading guilty to a misdemeanor heroin-possession charge and a felony count of having firearms while being a user of controlled substances.
"This week it became obvious that America's sexual revolution has been built on lies," wrote Michael Cook, editor of Mercatornet.com, an Australian website that describes itself as "dedicated to human dignity."
