Third lawsuit seeks to block religious objections law

A third federal court case seeks to block a Mississippi law that will let government clerks cite religious beliefs to recuse themselves from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

A lawsuit filed Friday says House Bill 1523 violates the separation of church and state by favoring a few religious beliefs over others. Mississippi Center for Justice filed suit for a diverse group of people, including some ministers.
