(Newser) – The Supreme Court ruled sodomy bans unconstitutional 10 years ago, yet Louisiana voted to uphold its anti-sodomy law last week—and it's not the only state that still has such a law on the books. As the AP reports, Montana and Virginia were the only two of 14 states with sodomy bans to repeal their laws after the Supreme Court's decision; including Louisiana, that means 12 states still have such laws:

  • Alabama
  • Florida
  • Idaho
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Michigan
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • Oklahoma
  • South Carolina
  • Texas
  • Utah
