Title: Judge won't marry interracial couples
Mood: annoyed
I know there is still prejudice in the world, but I keep hoping we are over the worst of it when some redneck wacko goes off and proves me wrong again.

Interracial couple denied marriage license in La.

Of course its in the south, where ignorance is a virtue and stoopidity rewarded. But one would hope that state officials would at least show a modicum of decency or intelligence.

But you just have to love the take-away quote:

"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."

How very white of him!! He lets black people use his bathroom!!! How practically 1920 of him!

I think I'm going to be sick :-/
