 Texas Anti-Gay Law Still on the Books Despite Supreme Court Ruling 8 Years Ago, Republicans Fighting to Keep it That Way
Texas Anti-Gay Law Still on the Books Despite Supreme Court Ruling 8 Years Ago, Republicans Fighting to Keep it That Way

Texas, which struck down state sodomy laws and set a precedent that protects sex between consenting adults under the constitutional right to privacy. None of this seems to matter to Texas' Republican supermajority. picked by B-MoreRavensFan 6 months ago

Despite the banner picture saying "Re-Criminalize Sodomy," the bill at vote would actually un-criminalize it; Texas law still prohibits homosexual behavior, though that was deemed unconstitutional long ago. The protesters in the picture are likely protesting that court decision.
