    I think we should lynch this man, have him disbarred and charge him with hate crime against humanity, whoever this person is, is a complete fucking lunatic or the devil himself. Worst part is, he will have conservative, orange county supporters who will sign their names to this evil petition. See what religion has done, created killer sociopaths in the name of..... icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    This IS NOT a hoax, folks. In the state of CA, I am a bit confused, did the KKK move here? icon_confused.gif

    An Orange County, Calif., attorney has filed a proposed ballot measure with the California Attorney General’s office asking voters to criminalize homosexuality in the state and impose a death penalty sentence.

    The filing, submitted along with the required fee of $200, will allow attorney Matthew G. McLaughlin to begin the process of collecting the approximately 365,000 signatures needed to put the measure before California voters on an upcoming ballot, reports Raw Story.

    The proposed “Sodomite Suppression Act” was filed by McLaughlin and received by the initiative coordinator at the Office of the Attorney General on Feb. 26, according to documents on file with the AG’s office.

    "SODOMITE SUPPRESSION ACT"
    [url]https://oag.ca.gov/system/files/initiatives/pdfs/15-0008%20%28Sodomy%29.pdf[/url]

    McLaughlin’s most recent bill seems ignorant to the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2003, in Lawrence v. Texas, that same-sex sexual activity is legal in every U.S. state and territory, and that decision cannot be overturned by a simple ballot initiative in California.

    This is a product of mental illness not religion.

    The man is an attorney, how in the world does a mental ill person get such a powerful, highly paid position? Jeffrey Dahmer was mentally ill, and poor. At least we now know the mentally ill exists in corporate America too icon_eek.gif

    It's a myth that being a lawyer necessarily means you're either powerful or highly paid. One would have to know this man's history to try to understand how he came up with this initiative.

    Just remember that a lot of evil has been done without the involvement of religion or even against religion (e.g., Stalinism), and a lot of great things have been done by religious people (including a lot who advocate on behalf of gay people), so it's false and misleading to blame religion in knee-jerk fashion for the destructive acts of people.

    I just came across this interesting example:

    Um, no....their evil is because of it, discussed here. Or do you wish to debate extremism as the root cause, not the religion?

    This cookoo attorney is obviously creating his own holy war due to his religious conditioning (obvious dangerous brainwashing)

    So whom is killing extremist Christians? Extremist Islamist, I say, let them kill each other so the rest of us can be at peace icon_rolleyes.gif

    Mr. McLaughlin clearly has no grip on reality. First of all, he'll never get the 365,000 signatures to actually place the initiative on the ballot. Furthermore, as has already been pointed out, this is settled law -- SCOTUS has already ruled against sodomy laws.

    McLaughlin is a zealot in the most pejorative sense of the word. We can only speculate about the source of his extreme bigotry (evidently religion, but it is probably deeper than that), but getting stirred up over his farcical attempt to criminalize gay sex is just wasted energy.

    The only thing that actually concerns me is the possibility that such ruthless hate mongering could incite someone, with even less of a grip on reality, to take it upon himself to start executing gay men and/or women. That would be tragic in the extreme.

    Your muddled thinking is no different from those whom claim you hate and fails to account for the variety of religious expression and experience in the world. You're as much a part of the religious wars as the extremist believers.
