In California: Christian Activist Files Ballot Measure to Execute Gays with a Bullet to the Head

Wow, my Twitter is blowing up about this.

So, this man, Matt McLaughlin is a California lawyer who has filed a crazy ballot initiative called “The Sodomite Suppression Act.” What's crazy about it? EVERYTHING, y'all! The Wonkette has the goods about this mess.

The key pieces are:
a) 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. 

b) 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.
Joe.My.God. reports
In order for the gay death penalty to be put to California voters, the backers of an initiative must pay the $200 filing fee (which has been done in this case) and then collect petition signatures equal to 5% of the total votes cast in the last gubernatorial election. Per the results of the 2014 election, McLaughlin must gather about 366K names. Below is opening text of his Sodomite Suppression Act.
This is so ridic, I mean really, somebody wants to put this on a ballot? I mean, I shouldn't be surprised, but seriously there should be a watch on this guy.

They thought Hitler was *ridic* too. Never underestimate the power of fanaticism.
