    Gay Sex Is Still Illegal in Louisiana, By the Way:

    What with the big uproar over Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson piping up against gay sex, let's all remember: sodomy is still illegal down there in Louisiana. Phil Robertson for Louisiana Attorney General!

    The LA Times' Matt Pearce puts this outrage in perspective:

    "Sodomy, meantime, is still technically a crime in Louisiana. State law allows a punishment of up to five years in prison for perpetrating a "crime against nature," as the statute calls it. The statute isn't really supposed to be functional anymore; the Supreme Court in 2003 struck down anti-sodomy laws across the U.S... [but a] Baton Rouge Advocate investigation published in July revealed that the East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's office had arrested at least a dozen people under the anti-sodomy law since 2011".
