America gangs up on a Louisiana judge who refused to Â 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.
