Forget Gay Marriage, La Doesn’t Even Allow Interracial Marriages

For real:

A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have.

Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

Nice. He won’t perform his legal duty and marry this specific couple because of generalized concerns drawn from his own limited experience with a few other couples. It sounds like this he’s been doing this for years, too; this isn’t the first couple he’s rejected. But he’s not a racist. Because he says he’s not. And we don’t have a race issue in Louisiana.
