“What little bit I’ve heard about it — I’m depending on the legislative process, and I hate to comment on it at this point,” Bryant said. “I am sure attorneys in the House of Representatives will be looking at it. I’m just not prepared to say at this point whether that bill has that provision in it or not … I do support putting In God We Trust on the state seal.”Gov. Phil Bryant
“As a minister, it’s clear that this extreme bill is about legalizing discrimination not protecting religious freedoms,” said the Rev. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, director of Campaign for Southern Equality. “This proposed legislation is a step in the wrong direction as we move toward acceptance of LGBT people in all facets of life. That’s why we’re seeing bills like this fail across the country — they are extreme and out of touch with basic American values. Mississippi is home to a large, strong LGBT community who will be organizing day and night against this bill.”Clarion Ledger
