I don’t know if you’ve heard about this one yet. There’s an attorney in Huntington Beach, California, about 40 miles south of Adam’s home, who feels being gay should be illegal and should be executed, and is seeking ballot referendum to place it up for election. I know – disgusting.
I just had to throw this in from @RandyRainbow! I think it’s bizarre that Indiana was Adam’s birth state and now a kook in California is coming up with this one.
He’s calling the proposal the “Sodomite Suppression Act.” I’ve been playing with the idea of posting this for a few weeks, wondering if it was site appropriate. I finally figured since so much is always talked about Adam Lambert being gay, this was relevant. The idea is absolutely disgusting and will never pass. If you google “California lawyer kill gays” you will come up with a ton of information. I’m giving you the Washington Post article, but please feel free to check out more.
Love ya! And can’t wait to start talking about Adam’s new music!!

A California lawyer wants a ballot initiative to require the execution of gay people
By Max Ehrenfreund — March 25, 2015
A lawyer in California has proposed that being gay be a capital crime and that citizens be allowed to kill gay people if the state does not put them to death. The lawyer, Matt McLaughlin of Huntington Beach, will likely soon be allowed to start gathering signatures to put his proposal on the ballot.
The proposal, called the “Sodomite Suppression Act,” won’t become law. It’s hard to imagine the idea would the garner the required signatures to make it onto the ballot. Even if it did, voters wouldn’t approve it, and they wouldn’t have a chance to if the state Supreme Court found that it contradicted California’s constitution. And since the law violates the federal Constitution as well, any federal court would be obliged to strike it down.
