No, this is not an article from The Onion. This is honestly happening. The California Attorney General’s Office has received the appropriate paperwork to begin the process of making homosexuality a criminal offense for which the penalty is death. The attorney who filed the paperwork, Matthew McLaughlin, will now have to obtain 365,000 signatures to get the proposed law on the next ballot.
Death Penalty For Homosexuality
We’re no strangers to the idea of handing down a death penalty for homosexuality. A recent ISIS video showcased the terrorist organization throwing a man off of a building and then having him stoned to death for allegedly engaging in homosexual acts. That’s ISIS, though; this is America.
The filing [will open PDF window] was submitted with the required $200 fee so that McLaughlin could begin collecting the signatures needed for his insanely bigoted and ignorant proposed law to take the next step towards becoming the law of the land
The Sodomite Suppression Act
Of course, we’re under no illusion that this bill, subtly titled “The Sodomite Suppression Act,” will ever become law, but simply look at a bit of the vitriolic hate that some people hold towards homosexual individuals. This is just some of the text of the proposed law:
“The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is 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.”
Yes… the idiot misspelled Gomorrah. Still, this illiterate attorney’s vile contempt for his fellow man didn’t stop there.
“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.”
Oh, and this gem:
“No person shall serve in any public office, nor serve in public employment, nor enjoy any public benefit, who is a sodomite or who espouses sodomistic propaganda or who belongs to any group that does.”
Wait a second… doesn’t California have a ban on the death penalty? How in the world would people be put to death for any crime, much less homosexuality? Well, the attorney who can’t spell the name of the Bible story which his ignorant bigotry is based on thought of that:
“This law is effective immediately and shall not be rendered ineffective nor invalidated by any court, state or federal, until heard by a quorum of the Supreme Court of California consisting only of judges who are neither sodomites nor subject to disqualification hereunder.”
You should really look into the proposed initiative. The idiot also says that, if California doesn’t enforce the law, the general public can start murdering members of the LGBT community in the streets without any criminal repercussions. OH, and once passed, the law would have to be displayed in schools across the state.
In reality, I’m really hoping that this is some sort of elaborate joke. Or a liberal trying his best to pretend to be an extreme conservative to make them all look bad. Sadly, in this day and age, it wouldn’t be too difficult to believe that some bigoted idiot really wants to kill homosexuals in the streets.
