Kevin Bardwell, the Louisiana justice of the peace that refused to marry an interracial couple, has decided to do the right thing and QUIT!
Of course, Beth Humphrey, who is white, and her now-husband, Terence McKay, wanted to be first in line to let him know there’s no love lost. Too bad they couldn’t be the one’s in the office that day when he resigned.
They could’ve told him don’t let the doorknob hit him where the good Lord split him on his way out.
Bardwell came to work and laid his resignation down in a one-liner, “I do hereby resign the office of Justice of the Peace for the Eighth Ward of Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, effective November 3, 2009.” And everyone is thankful.
He even admitted to avoiding marrying interracial couples. (Now, Louisiana is not the place you want to live to avoid that. They have a long heritage of the “creole” people.)
The fool went on to say that he didn’t want to do it because the children of interracial couples “suffer” too badly. Yeah, it’s all about the kids. That’s what we thought all the time, right?
