Who didn't see this coming..."Sodomite Suppression Act" allows gays and lesbians to be "put to death by bullets to the head."

Is America becoming a radicalized right wing despotic country? Yes, with a little ISIS envy thrown in. Here's what attorney Matthew Gregory McLaughlin thought California, heck, the country needs to keep God on our side:

A group of California legislators has filed a complaint against a lawyer who is proposing a statewide ballot initiative that would allow gays and lesbians to be "put to death by bullets to the head."

Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, an Orange County attorney, filed the so-called Sodomite Suppression Act on Feb. 24 with the state's Office of the Attorney General. McLaughlin's proposed law would also ban gays — whom he refers to as "sodomites" — from holding public office. Under his proposed law, people found guilty of spreading "sodomite propaganda" would be fined $1 million or see jail time.

McLaughlin faces an uphill task … The initiative must gather the number of signatures equal to 5 percent of those who voted in the last election for governor — or about 366,000 valid names.

  1. Excellent opportunity for a teaching moment. A law that ties the hands of an agency tasked with protecting the people of the state brings many, many opportunities for education and outreach.
    This is as bad as it gets, but this guy is badly outnumbered.
