    Lawyer In California Proposes Killing Gays With 'Sodomite Suppression Act'

    Lawyer In California Proposes Killing Gays With 'Sodomite Suppression Act'

    A lawyer in California has submitted a ballot initiative with the state Department of Justice calling for the death of anyone who engages in sodomy in the state, the San Diego Gay & Lesbian News reports.

    The proposal by Matt McLaughlin, who lists his address in Huntington Beach, was received by the initiative coordinator at the Office of the Attorney General on Feb. 26. Enclosed was a $200 check and the complete text of his "Sodomite Suppression Act." The act outlines seven measures relating to those who engage in same-sex sodomy, "a monstrous evil that Almighty God, giver of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthrew Sodom and Gomorrha."


    Joke, or serious?

    No matter if it is a joke or not, in today's social and political climate it is unlikely for this to go anywhere meaningful once in the hands of the public. I hope it is a joke, not a very good one either.

    Ah, lighten up people. It's a joke!

    Or rather, we ought to treat it like a joke, whether or not the guy meant it. He's either got shockingly poor taste in jokes, or he's a small minded bigot, and one way or the other deserves ridicule.

    There are three operative words that should provide all the clues necessary.

    "Lawyer in California"

    Enough said.

    Any individual wackjob with $200 can propose an initiative so he may be serious. There ARE people who think gays should be executed. He certainly won't get the signatures needed.
