Anti-Interracial Marriage JoP Keith Bardwell’s 1-Line Resignation

keithbardwell

Keith Bardwell, the Louisiana justice of the peace who has many white and black friends but refused to let men and women of either group marry each other, has resigned.
His one-line statement to Secretary of State Jay Dardenne? “I do hereby resign the office of Justice of the Peace for the Eighth Ward of Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, effective November 3, 2009.” As Miley Cyrus would say, party in the L.O.U.

      Don’t let the door hit you on your big fat racist white ass on the way out to Cracker Barrel.

      Um, since Keith Bardwell married a member of the human race, isn’t he involved in an inter-racial marriage himself?

      I love how his excuse was “I was just thinking about the children.” and all that bullshit about how interacial marriage is hard on them. Well I have to ask him something if he REALLY isn’t a racist….

      1. Did he also not marry people with histories of abuse? (Growing up in an abusive household is also hard on kids)
      2. Did he check income levels of the couples he was marrying? (Less money can make it hard on kids)
      3. Did he check the couples for a history of drug or alcohol abuse? (Having an addict for a parent can be hard on the kids)
      4. Did he refuse to marry people if either of them had been married several times before? (Several marriges makes divorce more likely, and gee, divorce is hard on kids)/

      I think you see where I’m going with this. His bullshit “It was all for the children” argument is just that…bullshit. He only refused to marry people of different races because he is a racist. And hey, Mr. douchebag….the only thing that makes it hard for kids from interacial families is when bigots like you attack them.
