Appalling Bill To Legalize Killing Gay People In California Submitted By Local Lawyer, Matthew Gregory McLaughlin

A lawyer in California has proposed a ballot measure allowing the execution of gay people, and — despite predictable outrage — the state’s Attorney General Kamala Harris might be required to circulate the measure. The “Sodomite Suppression Act,” filed by Orange County attorney Matthew Gregory McLaughlin on Feb. 24, would permit gays and lesbians to be “put to death by bullets to the head” if found to have engaged in homosexual acts. Because McLaughlin followed the letter of the law in submitting his proposal, Harris is obligated to circulate the despicable document for signatures.

In the measure, McLaughlin refers to gay sex as “a monstrous evil that Almighty God … commands us to suppress on pain of utter destruction.” His proposal seeks to pave the way to that domination by fear, by ensuring homosexuals could be punished with a bullet to the head, or “by any other convenient method.” The punishment would be required for anyone who had touched a person of the same sex in pursuit of sexual gratification.

According to New York’s Daily News, McLaughlin’s initiative anticipates reluctance on the part of California’s judiciary. If the state should fail to carry out the sentence, the bill authorizes the general public to act as understudy — vigilante executions of homosexuals would go unpunished under the measure. Mass murder of the gay and lesbian community would, effectively, be legalized. An anti-gay propaganda clause also stipulates that those depicting homosexual acts or advocating for gay rights in the presence of minors should receive a $1 million fine, a 10-year prison term, or a sentence of eternal exile from the state.
