ACLU of Mississippi Responds to Governor Signing Anti-LGBT Discrimination Into Law

JACKSON, MS - Governor Phil Bryant has signed HB 1523 into law after rapid movement on the bill by the state House of Representatives. The law, which is set to go into effect in July, sanctions discrimination by individuals, businesses, religiously-affiliated organizations - including hospitals, schools, shelters and others – against LGBT people, single mothers, and vulnerable young people in Mississippi.

What a pathetic state ...

I wonder if Phil Bryant is related to Anita Bryant. If not, he should be. Mississippi is the poorest state in the nation & the governor is only making matters worse. He would rather discriminate against the people he hates than do the things to improve the state economy.

Once again, Mississippi proves that evolution is not a given. Perhaps even that it can run in reverse.
