A lawyer operating out of Huntington Beach California, Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, paid $200 to proposes a Ballot Measure that would allow the execution of gays under the premise that this is necessary in order to prevent God’s "utter destruction".
The Sodomite Suppression Act
McLaughlin refers to gays as Sodomites and calls his law "The Sodomite Suppression Act". What follows is a direct quote from his measure, recorded as Penal Code section 39 B:
b) 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 the purpose of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head and by any other convenient method.
This isn't just some fucking religious lunatic, he's a lunatic publicly listed on the California Bar. But perhaps not for long since a group of California legislators have filed a complaint against him for violation of the state Bar's requirement that attorneys act in "good moral character."
Matthew Gregory McLaughlin
This isn't the first time that Matthew has attempted to use the law in an attempt to push his fairy tale agenda onto others, In 2004 Matthew tried to get a law passed to make the Bible required reading in public schools.
Almighty God, Giver of Freedom and Liberty
Ironically, the very laws that protect the freedom's and Liberties found in California are credited to "God" in the measure, while at the same time invoking the same god as an oppressor of freedom and liberty as can be found in Penal Code section 39 A of his proposal:
a) The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is a monstrous evil that Almighty God, giver of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthew Sodom and Gomorrha.
So it's a crime against "nature" but for some reason "God" wants to get involved and even though "God" is the source of freedom and liberty, for some reason that doesn't count when it comes to sex. Funnily enough, "God" was not well defined and could easily be attributed to Thor. This guy needs to be disbarred and evaluated for mental disorders.
