This week, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed an important religious freedom law that protects citizens from government discrimination for believing marriage is between one man and one woman. The law, supported by a majority of Mississippi voters, includes protection for pastors, churches, religious organizations, individuals, schools, and businesses. Texas Values praised Governor Bryant and the Mississippi Legislature for their strong stand, stating “Mississippi’s new religious freedom law is a clear indication that States continue to recognize the growing threats to religious freedom and the need to take action to stop government discrimination against people who believe the truth about marriage…We encourage other states to follow Mississippi’s example and protect their citizen’s freedom to believe and peacefully live out their beliefs.”
