Gay marriage is unconstitutional

Mike Espy (D): Yes. "Committed to ALL Mississippians having access to their rights of citizenship," regardless of sexual orientation.

Cindy Hyde-Smith (R): No. "Personally believes marriage is between a man & a woman."

Chris McDaniel (R): No. Supreme Court gay marriage decision "has absolutely no basis" in Constitution or common law.

Curious whether Robert E. Lee remembered as hero or villain

The Republican state senator made headlines when he asked his Twitter followers to respond to a poll asking whether Lee was a hero or a villain. Ninety-one percent of respondents voted "villain."

@senatormcdaniel: "In light of all the political correctness and leftist hysteria, I'm curious about what you think: How should Robert E. Lee be remembered?"

Let business use religious belief to not serve LGBT people

Analysis of HB 1523 by the Mississippi Clarion Ledger: A reaction to the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide, the Mississippi bill seeks to protect by law the belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman and prevents government intervention when churches or businesses act "based upon or in a manner consistent with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction." The advocacy director for the Mississippi Center for Justice said HB 1523 "violates a fundamental American value and strikes at the very heart of our work towards a fairer and more just state. This law is discriminatory."

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 32-17-1 on Mar/30/17; State Sen. Chris McDaniel voted YES; Passed House 69-44-8 on Apr/1/17; Signed by Governor Phil Bryant on Apr/19/17.

Government shouldn't redefine marriage

As host of Right Side Radio, railed against hip-hop culture

As host of "Right Side Radio" in the mid-2000s, McDaniel railed against hip-hop culture, referred to Mexican "mamacitas," poked fun at gay people, and derided a female candidate who he said was "basically using her boobies" to win. Critics, seizing on those comments--and his appearance last June before the Sons of Confederate Veterans group--have attacked him as a racist, a sexist and antigay. His political speeches, though more subtle, evoke echoes of an earlier era, when 1960s segregationists whipped up fears of outsiders, some scholars say.

"Millions in this country feel like strangers in this land--you recognize that, don't you?" he told an audience of farmers in Covington County. "An older America passes away, a new America rises to take its place. We recoil from that culture. It's foreign to us. It's offensive to us."

[His supporters] see a candidate who grew up steeped in his Baptist faith, surrounded--and influenced by--the history and traditions of the rural South.
