Mississippi has one as a ballot initiative currently tied up in court and its supporters are traveling...

This wall of text was inspired by an article I read about a couple who wanted to act as foster parents, but were denied because of their views on homosexuality. The article seemed to be more sympathetic to the couple, which got me all rant-y.
