Mississippi’s Republican Governor Promoted an Evangelical Pastors’ Summit

It’s no surprise that the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause prevents the government from promoting a specific religion. At least it’s not surprising to anyone who’s read the Constitution. Apparently that excludes Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.

The Republican recorded a promotional video for a “Pastors Summit” that took place in early October while acting in his official capacity as the state’s leader. He also promoted an event for evangelical Christians, scheduled for April, in that same video.

    To be fair, I doubt if they’d sit back and relax if a Republican in any capacity promoted Islam. But to be even fairer, the odds of that happening are such that I’d have a better chance of winning the lottery.

    No, the real question is why citizens of any political or religious affiliation would allow this. I wonder if Mississippians are even aware that he is violating his oath of office.
