Michigan Lawmakers Pin Unconstitutional Sodomy Law to Animal Cruelty Bill
Actually, the state is one of around one dozen to maintain laws against specific sex acts even after such laws were deemed illegal over a decade ago in the 2003 U.S. Supreme Court case, Lawrence v. Texas. But to reaffirm it with another bill?
What was Republican Senator Rick Jones (the author of this bill) thinking??
"Sec. 158. (1)
AnyA person who shall commitCOMMITS the abominable and detestable crime against nature either with mankind or with any animal shall beIS guilty of a felony , punishable by imprisonment in the state prisonFOR not more than 15 years, or if such personTHE DEFENDANT was A SEXUALLY DELINQUENT PERSON at the time of the saidoffense, a sexually delinquent person, may be AFELONY punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for an indeterminate term, the minimum of which shall be 1 day and the maximum of which shall be life."
Well he fucked that up royally, didn't he. And he refuses to change it, explaining:
"The minute I cross that line and I start talking about the other stuff, I won’t even get another hearing. It’ll be done," Jones told the outlet. "Nobody wants to touch it. I would rather not even bring up the topic, because I know what would happen. You’d get both sides screaming and you end up with a big fight that’s not needed because it’s unconstitutional."
"But if you focus on it, people just go ballistic," he said. "If we could put a bill in that said anything that’s unconstitutional be removed from the legal books of Michigan, that’s probably something I could vote for, but am I going to mess up this dog bill that everybody wants? No."
Wow - way to avoid saying the scary sexual words...lol.
So...to crack down on animal abuse, no more booty sex for Michiganders! I am ASSuming (see what I did there) that pegging would be included. 🙁
Come on out to California! You can fuck asses all day long out here. And I have just the lube for you!
