Bryant: People around U.S. overreacting to religious objection law

Gov. Phil Bryant defended a law Monday that has raised nationwide outcry claiming that it uses religion to allow discrimination against same-sex couples and transgender Mississippians.

“It’s not discriminating against anyone. People around the country may be overreacting to it. That’s my summation of it. They need to read the bill and understand that people of faith have some rights as well in this country,” Bryant said.
