A federal judge has blocked a Mississippi law intended to allow people who object on religious grounds to same-sex marriage and believe gender is determined at birth to refuse wedding and other services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves found late Thursday that the wide-ranging law adopted this spring unconstitutionally allowed "arbitrary discrimination" against the LGBT community, unmarried people and others who do not share such views.Reeves said the law violated the guarantee of religious neutrality and the promise of equal protection under the law by granting special rights to citizens holding certain religious beliefs.
