    Anything you do will only feed them, which is how Rush Limbaugh is so successful.
    Rush Limbaugh has greater problems. A few years back he was arrested at an Airport for carrying a bottle of Viagra that belonged to somebody other than himself.

    So...
    Okay vauge, fair enough, I'm going by the info in the AP story...


    The first sentence makes you think this JP refused to allow them to marry.
    Um... that's because he did refuse to marry them.


    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.
    Are you married? Getting the signature from the officiant is the deal. That's the marriage. That's the ceremony. That's the process.

    And, as an elected official he can not discrimate. He can't viloate the US Constitution and Bill of Rights and/or the La Constitution.

    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....
    Forgive me, but there is a big f-ing issue here.

    I can't believe you are serious.

    You don't see a difference between preventing someone from getting married and refusing to marry them yourself?

    No one should ever be forced to endorse a marriage. How does forcing racist people to sign off on things they don't agree with help anyone?

    I don't want to discourage racist shmucks from displaying their racism. I like being able to tell them apart. If some guy wouldn't approve my marriage because I was with an Asian chick, the last thing I'd want to do is give him my business and have his filthy racist signature on my wedding license.

    Forcing him to endorse marriages he doesn't agree with won't make him any less racist.

    The reason that people get married is for moral reasons. It gives a couple the right to sleep together and have children in the eyes of the community.

    The only person who matters is the priest or the rabbi or the minister or the imam.

    The government should only concern itself with people who are responsible for raising children. Anybody paying for raising a child. Married, not married. Straight, not straight. Anybody.

    Well, it helps us identify and expose racist morons and get them out of public office.

    No one is asking him to 'endorse' give his blessings... he's not a Catholic priest. He's a secular public official sworn to uphold the constituion of the US and La.

    He did NOT do that.

    so...Buh-bye, jackass!


    Forcing him to endorse marriages he doesn't agree with won't make him any less racist.
    Agreed. But forcing him to live up to the oath he took what this is about.

    These people had to drive across town - it upset their feelings. Poor kids.
    The JP comitted an act of discrimination. While I understand they're in Texas, the JP violated federal anti-discrimination laws when he refused to marry them based on race.
