Unbelievable. Well, maybe not believable, but incredibly disappointing.
But this isn't the last word.
Once again the Montana House Judiciary Committee has voted down a bill to remove the state statute criminalizing gay sex. We're talking about a law that imposes up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000 for simply having sex with someone of the same gender.
Not only is it morally reprehensible, this "sexual deviate conduct" law was ruled unconstitutional by the Montana Supreme Court (Gryczan v. State) and laws like it were ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court (Lawrence v. Texas).
SB 107 sought to fix this glaring problem and already passed in the Senate. We can still make it happen. Please send this email to your representative TODAY, urging a yes vote on a blast motion to take the bill straight to the House floor.
