    Due to decreased standard of living being primarily driven by unemployment, i do not see how you can state people have a chose to be unemployed (again, you are going to have to revisit the meaning of unemployment).

    Now you could logically state poor people who do not seek employment are irresponsible, but that does not constitute unemployment.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    WTF does unemployment have to do with interracial marriage?

    Oh thats rich; the majority of the worlds poor choose to be.

    Maybe you can answer what people choosing to be poor has to do with the topic as well?

    Are they working, paying taxes and supporting their families? Yes or no? Playing word games doesn't change the fact that too many people are riding in the wagon and won't get out and help pull.

    Now, back to the couple.....does the justice of the peace have a duty to marry them?

    If he is a state payed employee, yes he does have a duty to marry them. If not, then it is his choice, just like it is the choice of people not to go to him anymore.

    Children, students, retiree's, housewifes, etc... do not have jobs. Given that low standards of living, poverty, are driven by unemployment, his statement was ****ty.

    Now, back to the couple.....does the justice of the peace have a duty to marry them?
    This has been established quite a long time ago. Anyone who supports the JoP's logic is supporting racism.

    What are the requisites to get married?

    Do married couples need to have children? No.
    Do married couples need to be of the same ethnicity? No.

    So why is the judge denying the marriage licensed?

    I haven't seen whether he is or isn't yet. That is why I said both the statements I did.
