The issues confronting the Miss. Legislature of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act are addressed in the Sun Herald’s Mississippi lawmakers feel pressure over religion bill.
The Miss. Senate passed Senate Bill 2681 earlier this year while the Miss. House will debate the bill next week. While the most divisive provisions (the ones that caused the national outcry over Arizona’s passing in a similar bill) have been removed, opponents still see the bill as unnecessary or still allowing discrimination. Supporters of the original language of the bill question why the bill is needed at all if it only reaffirms the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
