after the sleeping comes the waking up.

In “your experience”?

Posted by c. wagner on October 19, 2009

Another bit of WTF for your thinking pleasure:

“A justice of the peace in Louisiana who has drawn widespread criticism for refusing to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple says he has no regrets about his decision. “It’s kind of hard to apologize for something that you really and truly feel down in your heart you haven’t done wrong,” Keith Bardwell told CNN affiliate WAFB on Saturday.”

He also said that in his experience, interracial marriages don’t last.

What sort of marriages do last in this country in this day and age? Isn’t the divorce rate something like 50%? Who else does this self-righteous “public servant” deny marriage licenses to?

Civil marriage is between people who want to join their lives and who are, hopefully, in love. It’s not his business to judge who is or isn’t worthy. And I wish more of the government and public would realize that.

Read the story at CNN.
