    Should the California state bar strike Matthew Gregory McLaughlin from the bar?

    It seems that in California you need to be of "good moral character", but the LGBT community wonders whether someone qualifies for this if he has proposed a statewide ballet that would allow gays and lesbians to be "put to death by bullets to the head".

    Or as this idiot (and I am using it here instead of other words that IMHO suit this moron even better but that would be banned from use on this or most other message boards/forums) put it:

    Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than they all of us should be killed by God's wroth 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 head or by any other convenient method.
    But the moron goes on, he does not think putting gays and lesbians to death for even something as sexually promiscuous as a kiss, he also wants to target the people "who propagandize that abomination":

    No person shall distribute, perform or transmit sodomistic propaganda directly or indirectly by any means to any person under the age of majority. Sodomistic propaganda is defined as anything aimed at creating an interest in or an acceptance of human sexual relations other than between a man and a woman. Every offender shall be fined $1 million per occurence, and/or imprisoned up to 10 years, and/or expelled from the boundaries of the state of California for up to life.
    And then he goes on that the federal government should not be allowed to ban such a law, he goes on that if the government does not enforce this law and remains inactive for a year, that the general public is allowed to kill these sodomites themselves without any fear of consequences. You know, a good old gay and lesbian killing fest without any fear of being arrested or imprisoned.

    You can read his entire moronic law here: stupidest lawyer ever proposes legalizing hate crimes.

    You can read more about this disgraceful excuse for a human being and a person who clearly does not belief in the United States or anything it stands for (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness and a whole host of US laws/civil rights) here:

    Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, California Lawyer, Proposes Ballot Measure Allowing Execution of Gays - NBC News

    A lawyer in California is pushing a ballot measure to legalize killing gay people - Vox

    So please discuss, should someone like that be allowed to practice law in California or has he well and truly gone beyond being of "good moral character"?

    No. It's called The First Amendment. It doesn't matter how offensive the speech is, he has a right to use it.

    But does someone with such offensive opinions still comply with the "good moral character" provision that the bar stipulates?

    I agree that he is free to have such horrendous opinions but should the bar have this kind of guy represent them?

    Lots of lawyers' activities could be viewed by someone or some group as not complying with the "good moral character" provision. If a lawyer has an affair, the pro-morality groups could demand he be disbarred. If a lawyer takes his family pet to a shelter, the pro-animal rights groups could demand he be disbarred. If a lawyer joins his Catholic clients at an anti-abortion protest, the pro-choice groups could demand that he be disbarred.

    In the state of California, you can be convicted of a crime - up to an including non-violent felonies - and be admitted to the Bar. You can be a drug addict or alcoholic and still be admitted to the Bar.

    What about Gay lawyers or lawyers in general, for that matter?

    I do not know about the guy, but I do know that any law with the phrase "good moral character" in it should be terminated.

    Good moral character and Lawyer are two things that do not seem to go together. If any lawyer should be disbarred it should be those who knowing defend guilty people in order to get them a slap on the wrist or off the hook.It should also be lawyers who run provoke and sue scams like the God hates fags group that should be disbarred. It should also be the lawyers who engage in litigious extortion and frivolous litigation should be barred.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No, I think his initiative is hilarious. Better than any of mine. I hope he is dead serious about this. Trying to get money out of him to help qualify this thing.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.
