    Michigan Senate Passes Bill Saying Sodomy Is A Felony Punishable By 15 Years in Prison

    "Some states' sodomy laws specifically target gay relations, but Michigan's is among those that make oral and anal sex crimes illegal regardless of whether they're same-sex or different-sex. Michigan is also one of several states with a sodomy ban that's intertwined with a prohibition on bestiality – effectively equating the two. The law makes it a felony for anyone to commit "the abominable and detestable crime against nature with mankind or with any animal." If the person is already a sex offender, violations are punishable by life in prison."

    Let me guess. More republicans.

    Time for some undercover work of getting them on tape with their wives or boy toys and making sure they all go to jail as karma.

    Do these idiot right wingers realize that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down sodomy laws as totally unenforceable in 2003icon_mad.gificon_question.gif

    I guess since there is a public referendum on ending discrimination against gays and lesbians to be voted on this November, all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs from both the Grand Rapids Metro Area and the isolated rural Upper Peninsula are getting desparate to preserve their so called "way of life". Go figure.

    ^YAY! Common sense legislation prevails. Down to about a dozen sodomy laws still on the books at the state level.
