The Texas Legislature passed the law decades ago. It hasn’t been enforceable since 2003, when the U.S. Supreme Court decided in a landmark ruling that it violated the Constitution. There have been regular attempts by Democrats to repeal the law since, but they have repeatedly failed in the Legislature.
To be clear, sodomy refers to more that just ‘gay sex’….but it’s been used as a legal cudgel by bigots over the centuries. Good on Cruz for this one though.
