More Groups Plan To Go Before Supervisors

The Harrison County Board of Supervisors will hear from more groups Monday on the Confederate battle flag issue. A group of local ministers known as "Clergy United for the Gulf Coast" will go before the board and present the Confederate stars and bars flag.

Leaders say they will urge the board to take the Confederate battle flag down from the eight flags display because they feel is morally wrong.

"Our intention has been and is to bring the faith community to let God's will be known about this flag issue," said the Rev. Lee Adams Jr. "We say in America, "In God we trust." Well, we want America and South Mississippi to hear what God has to say."

The Sons of Confederate Veterans are also on agenda to speak before the board of supervisors. Leaders of the group refused to comment on their intentions.
