In California, a Christian activist named Matt McLaughlin is trying to put a domestic version of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill on the ballot for the next state election. Two qualifications to get to that stage are that a $200 filing fee must be paid (done), and that more than 360,000 supporting petition signatures must be submitted (good luck).
The aim of McLaughlin’s ballot initiative is not only to punish any sexual touching between same-sex partners with, preferably, “bullets to the head,” but also to slap transmitters of “sodomistic propaganda” (such as, for instance, all the pro-gay-rights writers at Patheos) with fines of one million dollars per occurrence — plus, potentially, ten years in jail.
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.
