Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant received the inaugural Samuel Adams Religious Freedom Award for standing firm in defending religious liberty over business interest, and the lobby by advocacy groups.

The Family Research Council (FRC) considered Bryant’s trait very rare amid the increasing pressure to disregard conservative values, because of laws he enacted protecting religious liberty.

FRC President Tony Perkins said Gov. Bryant has been the constant target by those who wanted to advance a radical social agenda, but still he remained firm and unequivocal about religious freedom in Mississippi.
