When dealing with morons it's best to treat them in a humorous way.
A proposed state ballot measure that would authorize the killing of gays and lesbians infuriated one woman so much that she filed her own measure with the state attorney general’s office: the “Intolerant Jackass Act.”
The proposed ballot measure — yes, that is its actual name — by Woodland Hills author and activist Charlotte Laws would require anyone who proposes measures calling for the death of gay people to attend monthly sensitivity training and to donate $5,000 to “a pro-gay or pro-lesbian organization.”
You'd think that the "Sodomite Suppression Act" is a joke. It isn't.
Laws’ proposal is directly aimed at the so-called Sodomite Suppression Act, a proposed initiative by Huntington Beach attorney Matthew McLaughlin that authorizes the killing of gay people by “bullets to the head” or “any other convenient method.”
“It was done as a statement to make fun of Mr. McLaughlin,” Laws said of her proposal. “I wanted the world to see that California is a very open-minded state and that he is a lone voice, a minority voice, and that my ‘Intolerant Jackass Act’ actually reflects the sentiments of Californians.”
The "Sodomite Suppression Act" author apparently does't like the glare of the press spotlight.
McLaughlin has avoided the media since his initiative was made public. Calls to a phone number listed for him with the State Bar of California went straight to voicemail on Monday.
McLaughlin’s proposal has tested the limits of California’s normally liberal attitude of putting even the most extreme ideas on the ballot if enough signatures are collected.
Not much is known about McLaughlin, whose listed address with the state bar is a postal box at a Beach Boulevard strip mall in Huntington Beach.
An online petition at change.org calling for McLaughlin to be disbarred had collected more than 132,000 signatures as of Monday.
