Opponents file briefs in HB 1523 appeal

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) – The Religious Accommodations Act is still on hold per orders of a federal judge but more folks are adding in their voice to say they never want to let it take effect. More briefs were filed with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals last week.

“We will fight this as long as we have to fight it because it’s not OK to say that your beliefs are more important than my beliefs,” said Brandiilyne Mangum-Dear, pastor at Joshua Generation Metropolitan Community Church.

Brandiilyne and her wife Susan joined in on a brief but so did their congregation.
