Mississippians support new bill protecting citizens from govt discrimination


Friday, April 01, 2016

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Kellie Fiedorek regarding a new Mason-Dixon poll that indicates overwhelming support in Mississippi for bills like HB 1523, the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act, which the state’s senate passed Wednesday:

“Mississippians of all walks of life believe that the government shouldn’t punish someone because of their views on marriage. A new poll in Mississippi shows that voters in every district and demographic—age, race, sex, and political party—overwhelmingly support a law protecting schools, churches, businesses, and public employees from government discrimination. This commonsense ‘live and let live’ bill simply affirms the freedom of all people to peacefully live and work according to their deeply held beliefs without the threat of punishment from their own government.”
