    Think Progress » Louisiana justice of the peace denied marriage license to interracial couple, worried they might have children.

    What's this? They want to mix their races? How dare they! :eek:

    The true horror in this Halloween season certainly! :eusa_eh:

    As for my opinion that is not dripping with sarcasm, this is certainly wrong.

    I thought people were already past this shit, even in the south. Here we are, about to get Gays the right to marry, and then Lousiana's got to pull this shit.

    People need to grow the fuck up.

    Not by a long shot. If they wouldn't get in trouble, it'd happen more often. Hell, just wait hear you more talk about "state rights". Although plenty of people are concerned about actual state rights, there are a certain group of people who use the argument to try and justify Segregation.

    Dude, Racism and State's Rights are two completely different subjects.

    Federalism is a concept about the formation of political order... racism is a mindset.

    They should have gotten married in a church.

    Justices of the Peace are laws unto themselves.

    You're not understanding what I'm saying, people use the argument of state's rights at the time or use to in order to have veiled racist attacks. This is of course is only in referring to civil rights legislation and Segregation.

    Interesting observation by this asshat. Society doesn't accept children of mixed races, yet we just elected one to the White House?:cuckoo:

    He sounds like an arrogant prick to me.

    At the end of the article the guy said:

    "I've been a justice of the peace for 34 years and I don't think I've mistreated anybody," Bardwell said. "I've made some mistakes, but you have too. I didn't tell this couple they couldn't get married. I just told them I wouldn't do it."

    So if the guy doesn't want to marry them.

    I don't believe he should be forced to marry them.

    The couple just needs to go somewhere else.

    The stupid Justice does not need to be a Justice. And any children in his house needs to be removed right now.
