“A pastor protested a ruling lifting Mississippi’s ban on same-sex marriage by dressing a horse in a wedding gown.
The Rev. Edward James stood alongside the horse around noon Friday outside the Federal Courthouse in Jackson. He held up a sign that said, “Marriage is one man and one woman. Anything else is a perversion.”
Last month, a federal judge struck down Mississippi’s ban on gay marriage but delayed its implementation to allow the state to appeal. The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments Jan. 9 in New Orleans.
The appeal will be heard along with gay marriage cases from Texas and Louisiana. A panel of judges will decide if same-sex marriage will be legal in all three states.”
