When a Priest Files a Lawsuit Against HB 1523

From Mississippi-

Rev. Susan Hrostowski is familiar with fighting for her and her family's rights, even if that means going to court. She was one of the plaintiffs in the case that struck down Mississippi's ban on same-sex adoption on March 31. Less than a week later, Gov. Phil Bryant signed the "Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act" into law.

Hrostowski was a part of the adoption lawsuit so that she could legally do a second-parent adoption and become a legal guardian of her son, but after that victory, Bryant signed House Bill 1523.

"It's a very strange feeling when your own government legislates against you," Hrostowski told the Jackson Free Press.

She said the bill brought into question everything and everyone except those people she already knew.
