Mississippi House bill supports union of man, woman

House Judiciary B passed 13-4 House Bill 1523, the “Religious Liberty Accommodation Act.” It now goes to the full House for consideration…

…The Religious Liberty Accommodations Act says:

• Marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman
• Sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage
• Male (man) or female (woman) refer to an individual’s immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth…

…The bill, filed by House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, is in response to a county clerk in Kentucky being jailed for five days last year for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
