    In February, 1933, Congress approved the 21st Amendment, which repealed the earlier amendment and made the Volstead Act unconstitutional.

    So, you believe that Congress is actually going to pass an amendment that makes sodomy legal?

    Oh, look, the Volstead act was deemed unconstitutional. I got a called a big dumbass for saying that a few weeks ago. Who'all said I was stupid for saying that? You weren't one of them, were you Glinda?

    Newsflash: the law fobidding sodomy isn't unconstitutional.

    Doesn't matter how you personally choose to categorize the laws that were abolished by Congress. The bottom line is, they were laws and they were abolished by Congress.

    Congress can amend the US Code any time it wishes. Period.
    They can only repeal the US code when a law no longer applies. So, they can't do it at will. That's the point I've been making since my first post on this thread: they can't do it at will.

    Where did I say or imply such a thing? Can you READ?

    You asked a question:

    There's a precedent for Congress abolishing a law? Ok, let's see it.
    I answered your question (as have others) with documentation to prove that there is indeed a precedent for Congress abolishing a law. That you don't like the answer is of no concern to me. I suggest you get over it.

    Alright folks here it is plain and simple we right now have a Democrat President and Democrated Controlled Congress then why doesn't Mr. Obama just sign an Excut. order doing away with DADT and Section 825 Art. 125.

    You all keep saying he can and that Congress is the only one's who can change the UCMJ never mind the fact it's the job of the USSC to rule what is and isn't a legal law.

    So come on folks tell me why he doesn't just do today,tomorrow, next week huh ????????

    This is complete slobbering idiocy. You're only embarrassing yourself.

    Those are state matters. The US Code is not.

    But even so, to the extent that murder and rape are federal crimes -- and they are only under certain circumstances -- then yes, Congress can repeal those laws, too.

    WTF are you talking about?!?
