At a recent constituent meeting in Pensacola, State Representative Mike Hill, laughed when one of his constituents suggested he introduce legislation that would provide for the death penalty for “a man who has an affair with another man,” which Hill and the constituent found a basis for in the Bible.
After several news outlets reported on the exchange, Hill at first denied laughing and said he barely remembered the conversation, but after he heard the audio he tweeted that he was laughing at the absurdity of the idea. He refuses to apologize till this day.
There is no place for violence or homophobia in the Florida Legislature. We call on Representative Hill to resign immediately.
