Pastor Brings Unusual Anti-Gay Marriage Protest To Courthouse

In Jackson, Mississippi on Friday, a Baptist pastor brought an unusual protest against the legalization of same-sex marriage to the federal courthouse. Christian Post reports that Reverend Edward James of Bertha Chapel Missionary Baptist Church brought a horse clothed in a wedding dress, with white flowers in its harness, to the courthouse, along with a protest sign reading in part: "Do you take this horse to be your unnatural wedded spouse.... This might even be possible if the ban on same-sex marriage is lifted...."  James hopes to change the mind of the federal district judge who struck down Mississipi's same-sex marriage ban last month.  The court's order has been stayed pending appeal.
