This video from the USA says about itself:
As an addition to the earlier post on this blog about United States Christian fundamentalists The Family, also known as The Fellowship; translated from Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad, 6 February 2010, paper edition, page 4, article “Het geheime netwerk van Christus” (Christ’s secret network):
Asked about the recent affair in Uganda, where Family activists have proposed the death penalty for homosexuals, Stephen Haines
son of Family leader Wallace E. Haines jr.
says: “My father probably would have supported that. He always felt very strongly that gays should be punished.”
From daily The Independent in Britain today:
To counter the ‘kill the gays‘ proposal, an activist in California has proposed an ‘Intolerant Jackass Act’
Posted 2 hours ago by Evan Bartlett
Somehow, the Sodomite Suppression Act will actually be put to a signature-gathering stage because under Californian law, anyone who pays a $200 (£134) fee can put forward legislation without it being blocked by the attorney general.
In the unlikely event that Matt McLaughlin’s proposal gathers 365,880 signatures, it will be put to a ballot in November.
However, in much cheerier news, utilising the same loophole, a former politician and community activist plans to propose the Intolerant Jackass Act which brilliantly skewers the original.
The bill proposes that anyone found guilty of suggesting an act to kill gay people “shall be required to attend sensitivity training for at least three (3) hours per month for twelve (12) consecutive months. In addition, the offender or ‘Intolerant Jackass’ must donate $5,000 (£3,367) to a pro-gay or pro-lesbian organization”.
“The only way to counter [the Sodomite Suppression Act] is… to let people know that most people in California don’t agree with something as incendiary and hateful as what this one attorney proposed.
We have a very open-minded state and country. This is one guy, and there are millions of us who do not agree with this.”
Charlotte Laws, activist and former politician
