HB 1523, although meant to hurt the LGBT community, actually hurts us all. It allows discrimination based on a “seriously held religious belief or moral conviction” about marriage for same-sex couples, transgender people, or sexual relationships outside of a heterosexual marriage. Although HB 1523 on its face appears to only have an impact on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, it opens the door to discrimination against all Mississippians.  It’s not just anti-LGBT… it’s anti-HUMAN.
