It's dumber than that. The US Supreme Court ruled that all sodomy laws were unconstitutional back in 2003.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_v._Texas

So the law would just result in lots of court costs for the state as it got appealed and eventually overturned. Be pretty hard on the person who got charged, but what it'd do to the state is pretty ugly.

The fact that they are doing this (and that other states have voted against removing their sodomy laws) is proof that we *really* need to overhaul the way state legislatures work (and how Congress works as well, but that'd be a lot harder).

Come to think of it, this *may* be a misguided reaction to a case getting thrown out of court a while back. Some state (may have been Michigan) made the mistake of prosecuting a guy for sodomy instead of for statutory rape. And, of course, it got thrown out by the appeals court.

*Non-consensual* sodomy should be covered by rape laws. And if they are too specific (ie only covering penis-in-vagina sex, as I understand a few places do) then they need to be re-written.

Sex acts with animals should be covered buy animal abuse laws, and maybe by ones on bestiality. Though frankly, if there's little or no chance of injury to the animal, what's the point?
