Louisiana House votes 27-66 to keep anti-sodomy law on books
The Louisiana House of Representatives rejected legislation, on Tuesday, that would remove the state's symbolic ban on certain kinds of sodomy. The bill failed by a wide margin on a vote of 27-67, with 11 members not voting.
Louisiana's anti-sodomy law was overturned and declared unconstitutional in 2003, with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling such state statutes could not be enforced. Still, the Legislature has been unwilling to officially strike the measure from state law, even though it can't be used as a cause for arrest....
Yeah, although maybe it's one of those laws "antiquated" laws that have been overturned and it could also be a state by state law. I haven't researched it but a state I lived in had it on the books. There was a news segment of obscure laws many years ago and this was one of them, along with still being able to hang a man in Utah, and others I can't remember anymore.
adultery a crime, Chris? I don't know if it can be outlawed or not either. If it were a crime probably more than half a Congress would be in jail right now.
1 Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB
Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality -- Rated "M!" Is a good enough reason for having such laws on the books. While usually I don't think that moral statements from secular sources is very practical, and in this case, it is it either, I still apply there actions for highlighting such a grossly unnatural act.
