In Texas, "homosexual conduct" is still on the books as a crime, eight years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the law unconstitutional.
Although the state's so-called sodomy law cannot be legally enforced, civil rights advocates say it should be removed from the books because it creates a climate favoring bullying and other hate crimes.
But the Austin American-Statesman reports that legislation that would bring state law in line with the U.S. Constitution faces a questionable future in the Legislature, which has been reluctant to provide legal protections to citizens based on sexual orientation.
