Protesters gather outside the Governor’s Mansion in Jackson late Monday to urge Gov. Phil Bryant to veto House Bill 1523. Proponents say the proposed law seeks to protect citizens’ “sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction” to refuse public or private service to same-sex marriage couples. Opponents say it opens the door to discrimination against gays, lesbians and others. The bill was sent by the Legislature to Bryant for signature on Monday.
