The Louisiana House voted 66-27 to keep the state's unconstitutional sodomy ban under Louisiana's "crimes against nature" law, according to The Huffington Post.

The Supreme Court's 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision invalidated all state bans on gay sex, declaring them unconstitutional. However, Louisiana, along with several other states, has refused to strike the provision from state law.
