Indeed, senators from Mississippi are debating on a bill, the House Bill 1523, which would block same-sex couples' access to wedding services or equal marriage licenses by allowing clerks to refuse to issue them on the basis of their religion.
The bill also states that the government could not punish nor businesses nor religious groups discriminating against LGBT people.
The discussions began yesterday evening, we obviously hope a positive outcome.
Mississippi is one of 10 states that filed such a bill following the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States to legalize equal marriage across the country.
We saw that Georgia, Virginia and North Carolina rejected these measures, in all cases at first because in some states the case is not over, we hope that Mississippi also follows this path.
