Dude, only in California.
An attorney from Orange County, California, has introduced a ballot proposal calling for all gays and lesbians, or “Sodomites,” to be “put to death by bullets to the head.”
The attorney, Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, filed his “Sodomite Suppression Act” in February of this year, which seems to give California residents the right to kill any and all gays and lesbians.
As reported by Fox, the Act states:
Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than that all of us should be killed by God’s just wrath against us for the folly of tolerating wickedness in our midst, the people of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.
Fox also reports:
McLaughlin’s proposal also calls for banning gays–or “sodomites”–from holding public office. Those found guilty of spreading propaganda would be fined $1 million and/or thrown in jail for a decade. He or she could also be banned from California for life, under the proposal.
Of course, none of this would ever be implemented as it would run afoul of any number of state and federal laws–let alone the constitutional right to due process. But the proposal itself continues to go through the official ballot initiative process, and some are concerned it’s been able to get this far.
