Virginia Supreme Court Upholds Sodomy Law

Pro-family activists in Virginia are encouraged by a recent Virginia Supreme Court ruling on sodomy. The Court rejected an appeal by ten men who had been convicted for having homosexual sex in a park. The ruling means that sodomy (a Class 6 felony) is still illegal in Virginia--and that means that children will not be subjected to homosexual recruitment programs in the public schools. States with sodomy laws can prohibit the promotion of illegal acts in schools. According to Joe Glover of the Family Policy Network, this also means that homosexuals can still be prohibited from engaging in sex acts in public parks.
