Mississippi Episcopal Diocese supports changing state flag

A resolution, recently approved by the 189th Annual Council of the diocese, supports the position of religious leaders who demonstrated at the State Capitol on Thursday.

“Our annual council expressed its strong position on this matter at our convention in Biloxi,” said the Rt. Rev. Brian R. Seage, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi. “We stand as one with those from the Mississippi Religious Leadership Conference who voiced their desire for change Thursday.”
