In Christian Activist Files Ballot Measure To Execute All Gay People By ‘Bullets To The Head’ the The New Civil Rights Movement reports that California man Matt McLaughlin has paid $200 to create a ballot initiative for the 2016 California general election.
His extremely well considered and not at all insane Sodomite Suppression Act reads, in part:
“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.”
Yes, Mr. McLaughlin wants to legally shoot gay people in the head to protect non-gay people from the wrath of the all-powerful, benevolent deity that created all of them.
As Mr. McLaughlin is not a member of government he does lie outside our jurisdiction, so no judgement will be made.
It’s encouraging that a good number of lawmakers denounced the measure including a (denied) request from the Attorney General to summarily ignore request. Regardless, the measure still requires an astronomically unlikely 365,880 signatures to become part of the 2016 ballot.
