Re: More Wacky Laws of Massachusetts

Yes these old laws are funny...but other then a few southern states where they actually enforce these laws...most have not been enforced in probably 80 years...some probably more like 100+ years. A lot of these laws date from the early 1800's and some from the 1700's where that sort of thing truely was a 'terrible' thing...not that I would ever consider most of them terrible (okay...maybe the animal bit).

Before anyone comments about the blasphemy law...most states have or had one and they were also enacted a long time ago...and by the STATES, not the federal government. The feds pretty much stayed out of the states way for a long time after the founding of the USA (pretty much until about the civil war) so church-state seperation didn't really apply to state governments till much closer to 'modern' times.
