    How does anyone benefit from forcing the justice to marry anyone he doesn't want to?

    Being in a mixed race relationship myself, if I were going to get married, and found out that a Justice was racist, I wouldn't want to get married by him.
    Well, there is a valid argument on rather or not the Justice broke a law, even if his refusal were based on valid fact and sound logic.

    Illegal is illegal.

    I don't even support same-race marriage on the basis of equality.

    I simply do not care if you have a 'right'. If you shouldn't do it, you shouldn't do it. If you do it anyway and it becomes a problem, I would support removing your 'right' as you apparently can't use it appropriately anyway.

    Shw this to be true.
    Do you deny that mulatto chidlren face particular harships when growing up in certain societies?

    IMHO, he would have denied it even if they provided medical proof that they could not conceive.
    Based on what?

    I didn't. I bet you didn't, either. But then, I'm not a mulatto.

    I used the term "particular" to seperate the hardships in question from those that everyone face.

    My comments are contained to race because the OP and the OP's article are contained to race. It therefore follows that the thread is contained to race.



    I haven't seen his record to confirm or deny this. Can you link to it please?
    Going from the article it appears he denied it because "Those types of marriages don't last long". So he is one, assuming inter-racial couples get divorced more then non-interracial couples while also believeing the differences in divorce rates are so substantial that the first group should outright be denied the ability to be married. And two assuming children of divorced parents lead a harder life then non-divorced parents or non-married parents. The latter being the specific situation the justice is trying to force these children into.

    Yeah, so let's not allow mixed races to breed because it may upset the bigots. While we are at it, let's cater to their every whim and not allow people of mixed races to even get in relationships in the first place.

    I'm Chinese American, and yes I've had particular hardships in my upbringing, which was particular to my ethnicity. I'm sure many others minorities have particular hardships as well. What's the big deal?

    EDIT: and I forgot, I call Bull**** on you claiming you never had any particular hardship. You had a perfect life, have you?

    The state of the potential child is a pointless argument in response to the ability to be married as 1) marraige is not a requirement of producing offspring and 2) producing offspring is not a requirement to be married.

    Please stay on topic.

    Well, you were trying to steer the topic into a direction that has nothing to do with the stated objections by the JOP in the OP.

    He refuses to marry people of different races because the children resulting from such unions will be outcasts in both racial groups. It had nothing to do with the dynamics within the couple and everything to do with what the child will experience outside his home in the big, wide and, according to this JOP, extremely racist Southern world.
