End Texas's Unconsitiutional Homophobic Laws: Support SB 538

This petition had 68 supporters

10 years after the landmark decision Lawrence v. Texas, the unconstitutional law criminalizing homosexual behavior is still on the books. Why? Homophobic politicians don't want to change it, even though it is unenforceable. Moreover, Texas health ed classes are required to teach students 'that homosexual conduct is not an acceptable lifestyle, and is a criminal offense under Section 21.06 of the Texas Penal Code.'
Signing this petition shows support for actions that are already taking place in the Texas legislature, but we need to go farther. Email or call your Senators and Representative. Let them know that lies and intolerance are not Texas values!
