In 2003 the Lawrence v. Texas case that reached the Supreme Court made laws against homosexuality illegal, however, Louisiana still has laws on the books that are anti-gay. The laws are known as "crime against nature" which is defined as sex between two men or a man and an animal; “The unnatural carnal copulation by a human being with another of the same sex or opposite sex or with an animal.”
In Louisiana homosexuality is categorized as illegal and gay men in the state can still be arrested for having sex. As of 2015, there have been several arrests. Democrats in the state legislature are now trying to separate the official definition of bestiality and homosexuality, and guess what the Republicans are trying to stop the bill from moving forward. House bill SB 236 did pass the state Senate, but in the House, the conservatives are fighting the bill passage, where they hold a majority.
Republicans believe that SB 236 would legalize homosexuality; “This bill was written because the far left wants to undermine our other laws that protect family and traditional values that the people of Louisiana hold dear,” Sen. Ryan Gatti stated. He further suggested that; “that it most likely will be used as a Trojan horse to delete the sodomy law.”
Let's be honest there is a very slim chance this bill be passed by the House. There is no reason why current sodomy laws can't be enforced, but then again we are talking about Louisiana.
