Elected official doesn't believe in Interracial Marriage???

Hm? This sounds so familiar!! Read more here. Found this on CCN this am and was intrigued at how so many people found this appalling and asked for the JOP to step down from the position as he chose not to marry people for being an interracial couple. Apparently, he did this to protect the kids that may spring from this union. He said he wasn't racist but couldn't personally endorse the marriage so his wife referred the couple to someone who could help them out.

The couple, feeling discriminated against, were married 10/09 yet still went to an attorney to file against the JOP who did not perform the ceremony. Now, one of the arguments against allowing homosexuals the right to marry is that we would be forcing people that do not endorse these marriages to perform them or face litigation, as in this case. People not endorsing homosexual marriages are for similar reasons as given by this JOP. The parallels are uncanny - and to think, Loving v. Virginia gave them the leg up on this.

There is no good reason for denying anyone the right to marry another (consenting adult). Of course you have to add consenting adult because morons will throw children and animals into it whenever given the chance...or even refer to polygamy, which I still don't care about as long as CONSENTING is the main ingredient. Seeing this matter, we thought resolved decades ago, come up really shows our society - biased as ever, failing as ever, evolving...not so much!
