    Re: Interracial couple denied marriage license in La.

    Was this JP "elected"?

    If so, what is the big deal? So it's un-PC, who cares?

    Seriously, he cannot be forced to marry anyone. JP's marry people for the extra cash on the side...because they can. They are allowed to say "no" for any reason.

    The current gay-marriage legal arguments will eventually serve to establish Muslim culture in America, which in turn will contribute to establishing portions of Sharia law.
    So ... Gays getting married will open the doors to sharia?

    Oh wow. Now that is a new one.
    Are you aware of the many countries in Europe who have implemented Gay marriage and is not under the laws of sharia.

    They are? Seriously, I wonder how much authority a JoP in Louisiana has? Is this an elected position, or is he just appointed by the legislature - one of those political jobs you get because you "know" someone?

    I know a minister/priest/reverend can refuse to perform marriage ceremonies, I wonder if a JoP can?

    Is he like a ship captain - he doesn't usually perform ceremonies, but can under certain conditions/restrictions?

    I guess what I'm wondering is - Is performing marriages the job of a Louisiana JoP, or is it like you said, it's just something he does on the side to make a few extra $$ because he can?

    The JP that married my wife and I charged a fee.
    It was on a Saturday.
    She was elected.
    She charged extra if we wanted her to travel to a location.

    She could have said no for any reason.

    I was under the impression that they could not perform marriages during business hours.

    I went out of my to properly qualify my statements, and yet you still misrepresent them.
