America gangs up on a Louisiana judge who refused to  issue a marriage license to an interracial couple.

A justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple last week because of concern for the children who might be born of that relationship.

Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace for Tangipahoa Parish’s 8th Ward, also said it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

“I’m not a racist,” Bardwell said. “I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house. My main concern is for the children.”

Bardwell said. “I have rights too. I’m not obligated to do that just because I’m a justice of the peace.” “I’m not trying to mistreat anyone. I’m just trying to treat everyone equal,” he said.

Have your say! Did the judge have a right to refuse if it goes against his beliefs?


From TIME:

“It was only 40 years ago — on June 12, 1967 — that the U.S. Supreme Court knocked down a Virginia statute barring whites from marrying nonwhites. The decision also overturned similar bans in 15 other states.

  1. Um…let’s see…the children that would result from this couple’s union would be of such disadvantage because of why? I guess this so-called Justice of the Peace hasn’t yet heard who the President of the United States is, or that he is a produce of an interracial union. Would somebody please inform this Justice and bring him into the 21st Century!!

  2. I think you are missing the point.

    The point here is clearly of whether the judge is entitled to his beliefs, no matter how repugnant, offensive or outdated they may seem to you.

    He clearly stated that the couple could get married anywhere else, just that he wouldn’t do it. Is he, in your opinion, not free or no longer free to live according to what he believes in?
