Gunn gets vote on flag as church messenger

House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, who surprisingly broke with the majority of the state’s Republican leadership last summer when he endorsed changing the Mississippi flag, got to vote on the issue recently.

Gunn was a “messenger” for his church, Morrison Heights Baptist Church in Clinton, to the Southern Baptist Convention earlier this month…

…Gunn said, “I raised my hand” to vote for the resolution, which is not binding on the 46,000 individual churches and more than 15.8 million members of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.
