Interracial couple denied marriage license in La.

"I try to treat everyone equally," he said. "If [I] did an interracial marriage for one couple, [I] must do the same for all", he said. Well, duh.

  • Had they been gay, I think he would have married them, by his logic.
  • Just unbelievable. My bi-racial kid is turning out fine. Pretty damn cute and hardy actually. He gets two languages and two cultures at least in the deal.
  • ...Not that the law would probably allow that in Louisiana.
  • ...the gay option I mean.
  • ...so if gays can't marry there, no one should be allowed to marry, by his other logic.
  • I predict that this guy will be paying for their honeymoon.
  • I always admire the way that no matter how racist a man is he can still convince himself he isn't at all
  • I'm with The Moth. WHAT. THE. FUCK? They use his bathroom. Wow, what a guy. Fire the SOB, let him go home and make sure his bathroom's clean enough.
  • I saw this yesterday....but started laughing so hard at the statement "I have piles and piles of black friends." that I couldn't post it anywhere... All I could picture was cordwood "piles" of his "black friends" laid up in his back yard... whom he lets in his house to use his bathroom...
  • I keep my cordwood AND my friends (of any color) stacked it the basement...it's warmer there...but, I don't let ANYONE use the bathroom
  • whom he lets in his house to use his bathroom... Just to do #1?...or was #2 allowed also? This bubba is a saint!...a saint, I tells ya! Are Southern Baptists eligible for Vatican sainthood?
  • I have no problem dating or marrying someone of another race. I did in fact. But I sure as hell wouldn't have lived in the South when I did.
  • Yeah, being biracial was really an impediment to Barack Obama becoming president.
  • I wonder precisely what part of "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" he doesn't understand. Oh, wait. I'm assuming he can read. That's right...it's Louisiana. I forgot.
  • You people claim to be "totally cool" with interracial relationships, but when I linked to that horse-buggery website I got banned. What gives, hypocrites?
  • It's fine to marry a horse if you like quid but nobody be wanting to see horse pr0n.
  • well, almost nobody.
  • *clears throat loudly*
  • Don't worry quiddy, in Louisiana horse buggery is perfectly legal... well, as long as the horse is the right color...
  • No piebald horses forsooth! But from the many published stories about vampire lovers over there, there must be a run on veils for shape shifter bats...
  • My favorite part of the article? "Bardwell said no one had complained in the past and he doesn't marry the couples because he's worried about their children's futures." Y'know, like the kids having to deal with people like Bardwell growing up. Here's a fun site that would likely drive him up the wall.
  • Yeah!!
