WTF of the Week: Interracial Couple Denied Marriage License
We told you this would happen!!! We said if we let these fucktard wingnuts hijack the ‘morality’ of our country that blacks and women were next. Hell, we said it the other day! The following is yet another example of how some of the Vocal Minority are getting their way. Not through law but because this is what they believe.
So the story is this; Justice of the Peace, Keith Bardwell (as seen above guarded by his sister/wife and mother/mother-in-law), in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, denied a couple a marriage license. Now, of course, if the couple applying for the license was in some way violating the law we would understand this. Were they underage? Was one of them already married? Since we are talking about Louisiana, were they a same sex couple? No. It may surprise you that in today’s day and age some backwoods hick is denying an interracial couple a marriage license because he was concerned for their possible offspring. He also believed that in his experience and opinion, interracial marriages are doomed.
We read this and something went sproing in our head. Oh my Tap Dancing Christ, we are so fucked in this country! Here, an elected official makes a judgment call about issuing a license not based on the law, as is his duty, but because he felt or believed that the children would be compromised since neither race accepts them. Bardwell will not marry an interracial couple based on his beliefs, not on any law.
Oh, and please check out how this racist motherfucker digs his hole even deeper. The following is from his interview with the Associated Press: ‘I’m not a racist. I just don’t believe in mixing the races that way. 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.’ Sure they use his bathroom however, he doesn’t use that bathroom. And his white friends get to use the really nice bathroom. And isn’t that nice that he treats them like anyone else. Wow, that’s a telling sentence right there.
Look, this is a slippery slope we are on. We sit by as the Vocal Minority does their ranting about the sanctity of marriage and how Gays will destroy that and quietly, in the swamps of Cajun Country, some banjo plucking elected official is denying marriage to interracial couples because mocha babies are just too much for him to handle. Listen, we are a mixed culture marriage and there are those out there that still think all Cubans are black. So maybe one day you will find that our love is forbidden too. Wake up Silent Majority, they’re coming to get you too!
