Oh, and he brought along a horse that was clothed in a wedding dress:
"Although (the protest) is ridiculous, so is the same-sex marriage status," he said. "That's the point I'm trying to convey to Mississippians today, and I'm hoping that (U.S. District Court) Judge Reeves will reconsider his ruling and that Mississippi will stay a state that will only recognize marriage between a man and a woman."Rev. James' signs read:
As Charlotte grazed on an area of grass in a median along Court Street, James held signs in both hands as passersby stopped in the middle of the road to grasp what exactly was happening. One passing driver yelled, "Your horse is pretty!"
The next unnatural law. Do you take this horse to be your unnatural wedded spouse to have and to hold? This might even be possible if the band (sic) on same sex marriage is lifted. Where do we draw the line?...And...
Marriage is one man and one woman. Anything else is a perversion.Mississippi's ban on same-sex marriage was struck down on 11/25/14, but that decision is in the midst of being appealed.
