Which U.S. state finally removed archaic anti-homosexuality laws from its crime code just this week? Place your bets now!If you had your money on good ole’ Penn state, you’re today’s big winner! It turns out that even as gay marriage was being legalized and anti-sodomy laws were being struck down across the country, Pennsylvania still had a law on the books criminalizing any and all depictions of homosexuality.Specifically, the cited entry in the crime code forbade the “sale, rental, distribution, exhibition, publication, lending, giving away or showing of obscene and other sexual material,” including homosexual material (which was deemed “patently offensive”).
