    "Louisiana isn't the only state with an unenforceable sodomy law on the books, though: a handful of other states including Alabama, Florida, Kansas, Michigan, Oklahoma, both Carolinas, Utah, and Texas still have theirs as well."

    Another gift from Republican lawmakers. icon_razz.gif

    wouldn't say that it's only republicans though. pretty sure that some democrats support them as well.

    Perhaps a few, but I'm confident this is an overwhelming Republican sentiment. The bill to decriminalize sodomy was submitted by a Democrat.

    I'm sure they're more worried about the beastiality.

    No,no

    Louisiana clearly voted for the no beastiality bill.

    Clearly.

    Thank you. I think that Michigan permanently repealed its sodomy law quite awhile ago. Both conservative democrats and conservative republicans are responsible for these archaic, unenforceable laws still being on the books. But Art will never criticize his beloved democratic party, it can do no wrong in his mind.

    That's a lie. The vote in Louisiana was a Republican majority vote. No Democratic votes were needed for its passage.

    It seems to me that the person who has a defective view of party politics is yourself. In that you hold that the Republicans are the friends of gays, intend us no ill, mean us only good will.

    After all, didn't Republicans in Congress overwhelming insist on the repeal of DOMA and DADT, against fierce Democratic opposition? Wasn't it the Republicans who opposed the State Constitutional amendments outlawing gay marriage and civil unions, that the Democratic State minorities forced to be passed?

    While it's true, roadbikerob, that both sides are guilty of being poor stewards to GLBT causes, the scales tip heavily in one direction. This is obvious, right?

    No, there are, actually, 17 states with laws including sodomy on the books:
    Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina,
    Texas, Utah, Virginia.
    And most were created by and have been thwarted in repeal by Democratically controlled legislatures. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Which of those States have Democratically controlled legislatures?

    It's been going on since the beginning of time.

    IF you ever chose to deal in FACTS, you'd not only cease being ignorant, but you'd know facts when you see them, however "crappy" you choose to deem them. It's easy enough to do the research if you choose to. It's called GOOGLE. We're done debating with the uninformed. Out!

    Clever point! icon_biggrin.gif

    What's more pathetic is that, in a country founded by people who wanted to escape religious oppression, a vast majority of the laws which were legislated were for the purpose of suppressing behaviors considered to be religiously wrong, like this. And even more pathetic is how many such laws originally existed and have been repealed. Great start, but sad history. icon_rolleyes.gif

    You are wrong about Maryland, they repealed their sodomy laws back in the late 70s. Michigan also repealed its sodomy laws and so did Minnesota. There are no sodomy laws on the books in any of these three states. You guys need to update yourselves on this one. Now one state that probably still has an unenforceable sodomy law on its books is Montana. It was supposed to be one of the fiercest most punitive sodomy laws ever enacted. You probably should add Montana to your list.

    Try again. We'll break our vow to do the work for those of you who apparently can't or won't research fact. Maryland's Articles 3-221 and 3-222 are still on the books, valid. We'll leave you to do your homework on the other two states you incorrectly noted have repealed their sodomy laws. And you're wrong about Montana, also. Montana's was repealed, if memory serves, one year ago today.

    No, Michigan's sodomy law is still on the books. You're supposed to get twenty years in state prison, I believe. It has, however, not been enforced in a long time, going back to even before Lawrence v. Texas. As I recall, a judge in Wayne county threw out a sodomy case, based on his belief that it was unconstitutional under the state constitution. But this was a low-level court, and the ruling was not appealed by the state back then, so it did not set a precedent. Yet, no prosecutor tried again in the time between this ruling and Lawrence v. Texas, which finally declared all sodomy laws unconstitutional under the federal constitution.

    Whipmagic is correct. Sodomy was only negated in Detroit, it did not go to a higher court.

    As far as LA, isn't incest included in sodomy? And they left it on the books? hehehe

    More liberal hypocrisy.

    The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 enacted in December 2013 repealed the ban on consensual sodomy found in Article 125 for the US Military. The Act was passed first by the Republican controlled House of Representatives then the Democrat controlled Senate then signed by the President.

    So why didn't democrats repeal Article 125 when they had control of Congress in 2009-10?

    Yet it was the leftist who gave America things like DADT; it's not all one sided, and the leftist ignore the damage they have done and do; neither side is without sin.
