Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Friday he’s “very comfortable” with his decision to grant pardons or other clemency to more than 200 people, including convicted killers, in his last days in office, telling Fox News that Mississippi is predominantly Christian and believes in forgiveness.

Barbour said Friday during his first interviews on the pardons that nearly 190 of the people who got pardons or other reprieves had already been released from prison before his actions. Only 10, he said, have been or will be fully released from prison.

The pardons have set off outrage among some victims’ families and prompted a judge to block the release of some of the pardoned inmates out of concern that proper notification rules were not followed.
