A Louisiana judge refuses to marry an interracial couple since he doesn't believe in interracial marriage because of the effects such a marriage has on its children.  I have no words really..............I mean WTF?!? I'm stunned and I'm staring in disbelief. I'm getting more pissed by the second. Who does this judge think he is to tell people they cannot marry----to tell them that they cannot love who they love?!

From the article:

"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."

Bardwell said he asks everyone who calls about marriage if they are a mixed race couple. If they are, he does not marry them, he said.

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.
