In a statement, the attorney general said the office believed the law was unconstitutional as applied to consensual acts. However, he said he was concerned with the impact the decision may have on prosecutions involving non-consensual sex.

    Sometimes people that say stupid things actually are stupid. Or they might not believe the stupid thing they say in order to conceal their actual intentions, like preserving the Sanctity of Bigotry.

  2. Another unenforceable law against victimless acts mostly done in the privacy of one’s home. Snoopy Republicanism lives on and on and on, ad nauseum
