Mississippi can enforce LGBT religious objections law

JACKSON, Miss. — An elected interests court said Mississippi can begin implementing a law that will give shippers and government representatives a chance to refer to religious convictions to refuse any assistance to same-sex couples

The fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday turned around a judge’s choice that had obstructed the law before it could produce results last July.

U.S. Region Judge Carlton Reeves had decided that the law illegally builds up favored convictions and makes unequal treatment for LGBT individuals.
