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 irony of this “Sodomite Suppression Act,” is the fact that I see “pseudo-christians” coming down upon Mr. Matt McGlaughlin’s proposal, wherefore if they actually read their bibles, he is in direct line with the scriptures.

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: THEY SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)

“For this cause God gave them up into vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet . . . Who knowing the judgment of God, THAT THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:26-27) “Who knowing the judgment of God” is regarding Leviticus 20:13 as shown above.

“The law is for people who are sexually immoral, OR WHO PRACTICE HOMOSEXUALITY, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching.” (1 Timothy 1:10)

“PUT TO DEATH therefore what is earthly in you: SEXUAL IMMORALITY, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5)

When the pseudo-christian reads ALL OF THE BIBLE, as God intended, then they’re presented with some horrific outcomes that run contrary to their teachings from the pulpit on Sunday mornings. The Bronze Age belief of Christianity that they follow is not up for debate on God’s doctrine relative to the outcome of the homosexual since it is directly inspired from their Hebrew God.

“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:20-21)

Does any Christian want to usurp their God’s doctrine as shown above in portending to know more than God? I think not. “EVERY word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.“ (Proverbs 30:5)

It takes real cojones to be a TRUE Christian, and a life sentence in prison for following the Hebrew God’s direct words, a real Catch-22 to say the least, but that’s always been the modus operandi of the Judeo-Christian bible.

This is actually a blessing in disguise. If people sign online, I will be able to look at the list and know who I should avoid at all costs as neighbors, employers, etc..

If you find someone you know on that list, just frame them as being gay and watch the irony in action.

The lengths some people will go to attain their 15 minutes of fame…

What’s his agenda? Name recognition? Pot-stirring? Subterfuge — using this as a diversion while working toward some other goal that has a snowball’s chance of success? There’s gotta be more to the story than just a homophobe idiot.

I will bet this is the “marketing part” of a drive to reform CA’s initiative process.

i think you’re right, this is a stunt

My first thought was, “How does someone so idiotic manage to pass a bar exam?” Then I remembered that there were some fairly intelligent men among the 9-11 hijackers. Religious fanaticism seems to have the power to overcome wisdom for many people.

But you could be right too. He could just be using this as a red herring for some other purpose. It wouldn’t be the first time the initiative process in this state has been abused and it won’t be the last.

He’s a Republican.

Need I say more ?

This is nuts!

So a new hitler is alive, and this time he wants to use bullets to kill those he has a problem with.

Can we expel him from California?

What is most upsetting, is there will be people who will sign his petition.

This is no McG-laugh-lin matter, Matt. Those who rail most vociferously and venomously against homosexuality are often found out to be secretly gay themselves. Anyone remember the “reverend” Ted Haggard? So, in essence McGlaughlin’s efforts may be just a cry for help, to keep him from putting a bullet to his own head. PS Gay marriage is now legal in California and most other states, so get used to it, dude. Also, we don’t base our legal code on the bible, for very good reasons. For further details, re-read Leviticus.

Did this guy forget he lives in a blue state?

Also, homosexuality is old news. What’s hot these days is teaching tolerance! He should jump on that bandwagon because it’s really a much better look than spewing condemnation like this.

Hey, now we know Ted’s real name!

this isn’t April 1st

unfortunately not.

It also goes to show that ANYONE can draft a State Proposition for ANYTHING no matter how vile or ridiculous.

It doesn’t matter that it will NEVER make it to the ballot, they get the press,which is all they wanted.

But then again….if Cornel West put to music and sung it…would he win a Grammy award?
