LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A lawyer in California recently proposed a statewide ballot initiative that would allow gays and lesbians to be “put to death by bullets to the head.”

Matthew McLaughlin, an Orange County attorney, filed the ‘Sodomite Suppression Act.’

Under the proposed act, people found guilty of spreading “sodomite propaganda” would be fined $1 million or face jail time.

The bill would also ban homosexuals from holding public office.

However, the state’s LGBT Caucus is asking the state to review McLaughlin’s status as an attorney. They believe he is violating the requirement that attorneys act in “good moral character.”

In order for the bill to make its way to the ballot, 366,000 signatures are needed.
