Print Story Published: 10:02 am Updated: 10:04 amTOPEKA, Kansas (AP) - The ranking Republican and Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee say they intend to leave a law criminalizing gay sex in Kansas law books, even though it is unconstitutional.

The law limits sex acts between gay and lesbian partners. A 2003 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down a similar law in Texas indirectly nullified the Kansas law, but the Legislature must vote to repeal it.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Thursday that Rep. Lance Kinzer, an Olathe Republican, and Rep. Jan Pauls, a Democrat from Hutchinson, said it wasn't necessary to remove the law. Kinzer says the law is unenforceable and no one is being harmed by it.

Thomas Witt, state chairman of the Kansas Equity Coalition, says the law's existence is an insult to gays and lesbians living in Kansas.

Kansas seems generally to be anywhere from 15-25 years behind the times.

Thankfully we also seem to be trailing in debt.
