    You don't.

    Anything you do will only feed them, which is how Rush Limbaugh is so successful.

    So...

    The first sentence makes you think this JP refused to allow them to marry.

    In reality, they already had the license. The JP refused to endorse it - which he is ALLOWED to do for any reason. The JP could careless if they get married, he just isn't going to sign the paper.

    There is no issue here. We cannot force this JP to think like anyone. Signing certs is during their off time. It is sickening how out of control people get about stupid things. Sorry it wasted your time...go to another JP and stop thinking you are someone speshal....
    i realize they could easily go elswhere, but why should they have to? it's not special to believe the jp should marry an interracial couple when he admits he marries other couples all the time.

    he is within his rights, i agree. refusing to marry them is still wrong.

    Not legally, & not in his opinion....
    It is your opinion that it is wrong, & you are certainly entitled to that.....

    That said, I'm surprised this:Louisiana newlyweds want justice of peace fired - CNN.com took so long.....

    SNL on Mr. Bardwell ~

    On the Louisiana Justice of the Peace who refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple:


    "[The justice] defended his action by saying, 'I'm not a racist, I just don't believe in missing the races that way.' OK, tip for all you racists out there: Never follow the denial of racism with the definition."

    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.
    At the same time he cannot deny a marriage license based on race. There are federal laws prohibiting this type of conduct.

    What this particular JP did is in direct violation of those laws.

    To be fair, this JP didn't withhold his sig in the name of racial purity and preventing a mongrel breed.

    He did so in the name of high divorce rates.
