California initiative calls for killing gays

March 23, 2015

gaySignature gatherers may soon approach California voters with a plan to institute the death penalty as punishment for gay sex.

Huntington Beach attorney Matt McGlaughlin is proposing the “Sodomite Suppression Act,” a planned state ballot measure for which he submitted paperwork late last month. McGlaughlin’s proposal calls for “bullets to the head” or any other convenient method of killing those who engage in sexual activity with a person of the same gender.

“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 fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for the purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method,” McGlaughlin’s submission states.

McGlaughlin also proposes $1 million fines, prison sentence of up to 10 years and/or expulsion from the state of California for anyone who distributes “sodomistic propaganda.” Likewise, he calls for prohibiting sodomites and sodimistic propagandists from serving in public office or receiving any public benefit.

The Sodomite Suppression Act is to be prominently posted in every public school classroom, according to the text McGlaughin sent to the attorney general’s office.

Since McGlaughlin paid the accompanying $200 fee, the attorney general’s office is expected to draft a title and summary for the ballot measure proposal. That would initiate the signature-gathering phase of the initiative.

About 366,000 signatures are needed to qualify an initiative for the November 2016 ballot. State rules require that the number of signatures be equal to at least 5 percent of the total votes cast in the last gubernatorial election.

People outraged by McGlaughlin’s initiative are circulating an online petition calling for the California State Bar to disbar the Huntington Beach attorney. The online petition already has nearly 16,000 supporters.

The Newlywed Game forty years ago, in answer to the question, “Where’s the strangest place you ever made whoopee?” “That would be in the butt, Bob!” Heteros would be in trouble too…..just sayin’…..

The process of gathering signatures should be an interesting one.

“Hi, would you take a minute and sign this ballot initiative”?

What is it for?

“It allows the state to put a bullet in the back of people’s heads if they are gay”.


Should make for a strange trip to the grocery store.

Then again, Penn and Teller once did a ruse where they got hundreds of people at earth day to sign a petition to ban di-hydrogen oxide (H20). Should never underestimate the stupidity of the american voter.


If I can be Frank, and you remain to be achillesheal, all TRUE Christians should be the first to sign up for this initiative as I have enlightened everyone on the prevoius page of this thread.


I thought the christian mantra was to hate the sin but love the sinner…

I think this McGlaughlin is a latent homosexual. I think this guy’s relationship with God is no closer than that of David Koresh or Hitler.

No, this guy is a blatant Republican.

You Republicans and ‘conservatives’ WELCOMED these idiot mass-murderers into your fold. Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rick ( frothy mix ) Santorum, plenty of other serial killer Republicans to choose from.

You bought these maniacs, NOW LIVE AND DIE WITH THEM .


This type story is what makes those of us whom have a relationship with Jesus Christ, our God and our Savior, look like what the gov’t is now referring to us as; “Extremists”.

The comparison is that the media when given the opportunity will cite the Westboro Baptist Church as “Christian”, with their slogan, “God Hates Fags”.

Readers, if this is their stance, then the WBC and its congregants are not Christian at all.


God hates sin. However, He loves the sinner. But, homosexuality in and of itself is just ONE of many types of sinful behavior. If Mr. McGlaughlin is proposing this disgusting ballot measure which once again will only levy more hate and bigotry torwards Christians, then I would suggest that he include:

Fornicators, idolators, adulterers, sodomites, thieves, coveteous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners. – 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. But here’s the glory and the promise in 1 Corithians 6:11: And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. – NKJV

Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. – NASB

Last but not least:

John 3:16: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17: For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Amen! Tell that self loathing latent homosexual where to stick his bill, and then take his own advice!

This is simply more proof that the lunatics are running the asylum. The once golden state ain`t so golden anymore.

It’s still golden if you are in the right group, political elite, public service union, illegal, or welfare. The only group it’s not golden for is the middle class taxpayer.

kayaknut With the exception of high-level administrators, the members of “public service union[s]” are “middle class taxpayer[s]” as well. We don’t receive anything that resembles “gold” during our careers, and we certainly don’t get “golden” handshakes when we retire. And, in case you didn’t know, WE PAY into our own retirements with a huge chunk of our own salaries, every month, automatically. It’s part of the deal that society makes with its public servants. If you don’t like it, try to do something about it. Good luck with that.

Unless you PRODUCE something, you are a parasite, middle class or not. Firemen, police, these we are willing to subsidize because of the nature of their contributions to society. Paper-pushing bureaucrats, not so much. They are the chaff that will blow away when the money printing/debt economy comes a grinding halt. Good luck with that.

tictac1: We agree on “paper-pushing bueaucrats,” but what do firemen and police “PRODUCE”? I value their service to society, but let’s be honest: they do a whole lot of sitting around in their vehicles or their fire stations. I suppose you could argue that police officers “produce” revenue by issuing tickets, but that can lead to abuses, as occurred in PR, where an illegal ticket quota was instituted by the last chief of police. Do you consider teachers to be parasites, or do you value their efforts on behalf of the children of their communities? If not, then how exactly would you go about attracting and retaining, quality, qualified college graduates to enter the profession, without a defined benefit waiting at the end of a long (30 year) career? I look forward to reading the response that you produce.

Please notice I carved out an exception for the police and fire, due to the nature of their services. On the other hand, I do not want or need any of the licenses I currently hold; I hold them due to coercion. Do driver licenses make anyone a good driver? The answer is obvious. Technically, a teacher DOES produce, so they would also not fall under the category of parasite, though I would never send a child to one of our government schools, they are a joke. Qualified, quality educators? Show me one! I’ve met a few (I’m a teacher) but they don’t stay in public education. People have forgotten that just in the last few decades has government promised cradle-to-grave security; the roads, wars, and other niceties you mention in your other were all at one time the products of the free market. Maybe wars are the exception? I’m not sure I’d miss that one. WAY off topic, BTW, sorry about that.

A huge Chuck of your salary goes to your retirement?

When your retirement consists of ONLY what you have contributed then we’ll talk.

justbeware: Who is “Chuck”?

“Chuck” must be everyman, because everyman is who is paying the bulk of public employees retirement.

racket: Lest you forget, each public employee is also an everyman/woman and a tax payer as well. But I applaud your conservative effort to turn this into an “us” vs. “them” situation. That worked so well for Mitt “47%” Romney. Bottom line: unless you’re willing to home-school your own kids from k to 12, police your own neighborhood, put out your own fires, purify/deliver your own water, generate your own electricity, pave your own roads, pass your own laws, and fight your own wars, you need to resign yourself to the fact that a portion of your REASONABLE taxes are going to keep going toward the dedicated people who currently do all of those things for you, me, and every other everyman/woman in America.

a. We’re off topic.

b. It is already an us-vs-them situation, I am simply pointing it out.

c. I get it that you pay into your own retirement. You need to get it that I pay into your retirement as well.

c.1. You do not pay into my retirement that I am aware of.

d. See #a.

“You do not pay into my retirement that I am aware of.”

Do you provide a direct or indirect service to me or to society?

If not, then why would I pay into your retirement? I gladly pay

into the retirement of all of my fellow public servants who spend

their days working for the benefit of society–without a profit motive.

You clearly resent having your tax dollars spent on such things.

Far be it from me to tell you how to feel about how your money is spent.

This is just an application for ballot initiative… anyone can submit one. That’s the whole point of the initative system. This one is just more outrageous than most.

You could pay the application fee and submit one that requires everyone to wear hot pink. Doesn’t mean you’d be able to get the necessary signatures to get it on the ballot. Doesn’t mean anyone would actually vote for it. And certainly doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be immediately taken to court and thrown out on 1st Amendment grounds if it passed.

Just chill out and ignore it. To do otherwise is just giving credence to the ridiculousness.

Actually, $hit like this is the canary in the coal mine. How is it even possible that this kind of thinking exists today.

This initiative is an example of living in a democracy. That is why our founding fathers established a Representative Republic. Not a Democracy!

Haha, you got downvoted for exposing the fact of the matter, I congratulate you! With the radicalization of the LGBT community, it should not surprise anyone that there might be a bit of a pendulum swing.

No, THIS initiative is an example of prejudice, homophobia, discrimination, hatred, intolerance, and ignorance. It has nothing to do with democracy or a representative republic.

Americans are stupid. Heads firmly up rumps.

‘Conservatives’ and Republicans fully embrace these violent extremists and domestic terrorists. They pretend that they are ignorant ‘patriots’ or blithe bystanders, but allow and encourage this cancer to civilization to persist and grow.

Oh, ‘liberals’ are equally boneheaded, as they are as cowardly in not being willing to fight when necessary. They think they can reason with criminals.

The ‘thinking’ that exists today is not thinking at all.

Americans are just plain dumb, and the best outcome would be for 90% to kill each other.

This is absolutely positively ridiculous, maybe the California Initiative act deserves a second look. The nuttier we all get the more I think we should scale back citizen initiatives or increase the signatures needed.

Obviously fishing for a future presidential appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Extra points if you can name the political party.

Such a cunning stunt!
