More Mississippi Bigotry

In a recent post about Arizona's despicable "show me your papers" law, the Good Atheist wrote:
You get the impression sometimes that there really is two Americas: one where the values of liberty, religious and ethnic diversity, the rule of law and a sense of fair play still reigns supreme, and one where bigotry, homophobia, xenophobia, rigid religious dogmatism and “safety” rules the day.
He's right. After all, we live in the second of these Americas. Remember the Constance McMillen story and how it exposed the religiously-motivated bigotry and hatred in our state? It seems that we have another example. The Jackson Free Press is reporting that the Wesson Attendance Center (Copiah County) removed any trace of a lesbian student from their 2010 yearbook.
