On Darwin Day in Mississippi...
If humanists want to make a real change in Mississippi, they have to get involved in the local political scene. Change starts at the bottom and goes to the top, so you can make a big difference by running for local office. A position on the city council or the school board will give you the power to change minds and policy in your own community.

A week ago, I woke up to find the governor of the state of Mississippi showing once again, in so many ways, that he doesn’t value all of his constituents. Last week, the governor was a welcome guest of the American Family Association (AFA), a Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated extremist hate group that denounces those that do not share their religious beliefs, especially the LGBTQ community. Just by way of his appearance on this radio program, he tells us which Mississippians he values and serves.
Yesterday, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant introduced the 2019 Mississippi standard auto license plate design, featuring the State Seal of Mississippi as the center of the design. Please see the story as published in the Clarion Ledger. The Seal carries the national and state motto “In God We Trust”.
