Michigan Senate Passes Bill That Makes Sodomy A Felony — In Order To Protect Animal Rights

The Michigan senate just passed a bill that makes sodomy a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison – but it’s not exactly homophobic, it’s all about protecting animals. Let us explain.

Although anti-sodomy laws have been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, Michigan still has a ban that makes oral and anal sex illegal regardless of whether it’s gay or straight. In this case an animal rights bill is making it harder to rewrite the language.

The New Civil Rights Movement breaks it down:

For the last several years, Michigan legislators have been trying to pass an important package of bills referred to as Logan’s Law, designed to keep pets out of the hands of animal abusers, according to The Detroit Free Press. Among the bills in the Logan’s Law package — named for a Siberian husky who died tragically after acid was intentionally poured on him — is Senate Bill 219, by GOP Sen. Rick Jones. In addition to barring convicted animal abusers from owning pets for five years, SB 219 would update language in the state’s ban on bestiality and sodomy as follows:

The site rightly surmises that it’d be a great time to remove the sodomy ban outright, but an interview with Sen. Rick Jones highlights some tricky politics behind amending the language:

“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. 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.”

There you have it. Sodomy is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison as per Michigan law, but it’s unconstitutional anyways, and this bill helps keep cute puppies safe from potential animal abusers.

Or so they say. It all seems a bit archaic to us, but we skipped law school so we’ll take the Senator’s word for it and believe that puppies and bears are safe in Michigan.
