JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Religious Accommodations Act has received backlash and support across the state.
WJTV spoke to Governor Phil Bryant about what he thinks of people’s reactions.
“We are as 10 other states are doing … trying to decide where someone’s faith can be protected as it is in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No one wants to hear that, no one really wants to read about it, now the people of faith understand that the majority of the people of the state of Mississippi understand that,” said Governor Bryant.
The governor also said he won’t be surprised if the federal government tries to intervene in this decision.
