JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi government employees or private business people could cite their own religious objections to same-sex marriage to deny services to gay or lesbian couples under a bill that advanced in the state Senate late Thursday.
By far the most sweeping bill of its kind yet. Not only does it allow for discrimination against LGBT people, but apparently it also allows for discrimination against those who have “engaged in premarital sex” (though I’m not quite sure how one would know that).
Horrific bill, IMO. I don’t think it’ll survive long.
