Interracial Couple Denied Marriage License in Louisiana

I am stunned. I had thought we were long past this. Keith Bardwell, a Justice of the Peace in Hammond, Louisiana, denied a marriage license to Beth Humphrey and Terence McKay because,

"I don't do interracial marriages because I don't want to put children in a situation they didn't bring on themselves," Bardwell said. "In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer."

Where has he been? He does realize that this is illegal? The ACLU, of course, is on the job.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.
