Christianity could take a step backward in California, says a pro-family attorney, if a proposed 'Sodomy' ballot initiative succeeds. 

Huntington Beach attorney Matthew McLaughlin has asked the attorney general to issue a title and summary for a ballot initiative called the Sodomy Suppression Act. It bans homosexual conduct, calls for the death penalty, bars them from public office, and sets a $1 million and 10 years in prison for propagandizing.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Brad Dacus, an attorney and president of the Pacific Justice Institute, says the initiative helps homosexual activists "justify their further work to isolate and vilify those of us with a Judeo-Christian worldview perspective when it comes to the issue of marriage."

Even if enough signatures are obtained, Dacus doubts voters would approve it, predicting that both Christians and non-Christians won't consider it a serious ballot initiative.  

Instead, the PJI attorney says, the matter is a "hindrance and a stumbling block in addressing the real issues, which is protecting people of faith from being silenced, vilified and harassed." 

If enough qualifying signatures are obtained ,Attorney General Kamala Harris must put the issue on the ballot. She is asking a court to intervene and give her permission to simply not bother.
