Religious Discrimination in Mississippi

Mississippi’s Governor signed the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law on April 3, 2014. The Act, signed by the state’s Governor earlier this month, bans the government from putting a substantial burden on the practice of religion, but can easily lead to state sanctioned discrimination against the LGBT community.
