there were 879 convictions, including sodomy with another man aged over 16, committing an indecent act with another man, and "keeping place of resort for homosexual acts"
That was the law at the time, unfortunately changed by the progressives that infest our legislature.
"Anything that society can do to say, ‘we were wrong . . .' is something that can make their final years a little better."
Absolutely not. These criminals want their rap sheet wiped so they can hide their long held perversions.
Many of those who were convicted had their lives destroyed
Rightly so, boy-buggering priests spring to mind. Won't someone think of the victims in such cases?
In my view, homosexuality is a gross perversion which should still be a criminal act.
