In Orange County, California, Attorney Matt McLaughlin has submitted a bill for the ballot next November.
This bill would make it legal for gay men and women to be executed simply because they are gay.
I am all for free speech, but when a bill is presented to the voting public making it legal to kill someone because their sexuality, that is beyond wrong.
It is disgusting.
The constitution states the following: “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. It does not state “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but only if you are heterosexual”.
There are countries around the world where homosexuality is a crime. The punishment, even at the idea of being gay, at best to being thrown into prison and tortured. At worst, the punishment is execution. Iran is notorious to executing those who are perceived to be gay, even if they are not.
This should not be happening in the United States. But it is. And it’s disgusting.
