Christian proposes firing squads for gays
Devout Christian activist Matthew McLaughlin wants all gay people in California to be executed by firing squad to prevent a repeat of the ‘Sodom and Gomorrha’ (sic) incident.
McLaughlin last week paid $200 to file a ballot initiative – “The Sodomite Suppression Act” – with the Attorney General in Sacramento.
McLaughlin calls homosexual sex “buggery,” and “sodomy,” and labels it:
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.
He says that it’s “better” that non-gay Californians kill the gays rather than have to suffer God’s punishment.
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 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 the head or by any other convenient method.
The Sodomite Suppression Act also calls for a one million dollar fine for each act of transmitting, distributing, or performing “sodomistic propaganda” to minors.
And McLaughlin’s bill would make it illegal for any gay person to hold public office, be employed by the state, or be granted any benefits, such as welfare, social security, or use any public assets, such as roads.
McLaughlin will have to get 365,000 legitimate California residents to sign up to support the Sodomite Suppression Act in order for it to move forward.
According to this report, McLaughlin is likely the same person who in 2004 submitted a citizen ballot initiative to give Bibles to all public school kids in California, grades 1-12.
