    Thumbs Up Interracial Couple Denied Marriage License in Louisiana

    There is at least one public official with a backbone in America. But it looks as though the US Justice Department will make an example out of him. Though the article doesn't say it I'm assuming Beth Humphreys is White & Terence McKay is Negro. Terence is almost exclusively a Negro name in the American South.

    HAMMOND, La. (AP) - 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.

    Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.

    "I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house," Bardwell said. "My main concern is for the children."

    Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

    "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."

    If he does an interracial marriage for one couple, he must do the same for all, he said.

    "I try to treat everyone equally," he said.

    Thirty-year-old Beth Humphrey and 32-year-old Terence McKay, both of Hammond, say they will consult the U.S. Justice Department about filing a discrimination complaint.

    Humphrey told the newspaper she called Bardwell on Oct. 6 to inquire about getting a marriage license signed. She says Bardwell's wife told her that Bardwell will not sign marriage licenses for interracial couples.

    "It is really astonishing and disappointing to see this come up in 2009," said American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana attorney Katie Schwartzman. "The Supreme Court ruled as far back as 1963 that the government cannot tell people who they can and cannot marry."

    The ACLU was preparing a letter for the Louisiana Supreme Court, which oversees the state justices of the peace, asking them to investigate Bardwell and see if they can remove him from office, Schwartzman said.

    "He knew he was breaking the law, but continued to do it," Schwartzman said.

    According to the clerk of court's office, application for a marriage license must be made three days before the ceremony because there is a 72-hour waiting period. The applicants are asked if they have previously been married. If so, they must show how the marriage ended, such as divorce.

    Other than that, all they need is a birth certificate and Social Security card.

    The license fee is $35, and the license must be signed by a Louisiana minister, justice of the peace or judge. The original is returned to the clerk's office.

    This Judge is very wise, in his decision!

    Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.

    "I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house," Bardwell said. "My main concern is for the children."

    Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

    "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."

    If he does an interracial marriage for one couple, he must do the same for all, he said.

    "I try to treat everyone equally," he said.
    I agree, very well said! It's the children, who are not responsible for who they are that suffer the most! Children will be much happier and healthier with their own kind, and having their own kind! A child of only one race, born to a family of one race, in a segregated area of one race, will not have to suffer the back-lash, that products of racial mixing and integration produce.

    Our goal will benefit all nations by allowing them to keep their traditions and cultures and bloodlines intact, and we view as comrades those of any race or tribe who believe in the same thing. Further, we believe it is spiritually degrading to engage in hateful practices, and we believe in transcendent recognition of the truth of the situation and acting upon it as a replacement belief system for those unfortunately caught in bigotry.

    Deriving from two clear mandates, that of preserving evolutionary diversity and of allowing each tribe autonomy in shaping its own population and goals, our racial policy is not to be construed as some division of peoples into "superior" and "inferior." A hammer is a superior implement for banging things, but inferior as a spoon, and similarly, the races and tribes of earth are radically different. The only way to respect that diversity is to separate it, and avoid creating a class of miscegenated, cultureless people.

    The destruction of all cultures lies in this mixing of people who, lacking the cultural inclinations cultivated by thousands of generations among an ethnic population which rewarded some behaviors and discouraged others, have no innate character and thus uphold only the lowest common denominator: money, possessions, and novelty. In some cases, such as Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom and Southern Europe, small degrees of ethnic admixture have colored the populations in distinct ways. These now constitute new populations and if eugenic principles are applied, should rise to a higher level of functionality.

    That official who stood by his convictions against miscegenation will now of course be the target of all the ire and hatred of the media talking heads, government, Marxist and negro "civil rights" hate groups, the politically correct inquisition.
    Marriage is, of course, a matter of personal liberty and choice. The woman has no shame.
    The prevention of such miscegenation must take place with proper raising in the home.

    True.

    But at least whilst he endures the world of crap on his shoulders he can at least say he stood true to his belief.

    He has my utmost respect!

    Then that would leave the only other alternative to act against his own principles/views... IMO it shows a strong will and an unwillingness to compromise. There comes a day when we must look 'fear' against the backlash in the eyes and say "This is where I stand, and I will not bend to the pressure"

    It is unfortunate that the degree of support this man has will never be given as big an audience as the criticism and contempt

    That justice of the peace is a true man of honor.

    Courageous and firm in his opposition to miscegenation.

    The couple found another justice of the peace who was willing to marry them:


    I don't think the judge was legally required to marry the couple in spite of the Supreme Court ruling in 1967. The Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in 1973, but no doctor is legally required to perform the procedure.

    PS: Is it just me or does everyone have trouble viewing Youtube videos at Skadi?
