Keeping sodomy illegal in Virginia

The AP has this report on the recommendation of a legislative panel in Virginia to keep its anti-sodomy laws on the books.

The article notes: "The sodomy statute would not be the first unconstitutional law left on the books in Virginia. Crime Commission members also declined this week to recommend repealing laws prohibiting certain businesses from operating on Sundays and a ban on flag mutilation. Those laws were ruled unconstitutional in the 1980s."
