U.S. SUPREME COURT DECLINES TO HEAR CASE ATTACKING RELIGIOUS LIBERTY LAW

Released: Tuesday, January 23, 2018

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear a case that would have attacked a religious liberty law in Mississippi.  The law, which took effect in October of last year, provides a defense against government persecution for religious convictions in the areas of marriage, gender identity, and other sexual issues.  The plaintiffs argued that the U.S. Supreme Court should hear the case because it is hostile towards LGBT people in Mississippi.  VAIB supports laws such as this that uphold a citizen's right to live out their religious convictions without fear of government persecution.  Read more here:
