Too bad he didn't quit long before now. If his convictions tell him not to marry inter racial couples, he should never have accepted the position of a judge in the first place. The law says this couple can marry. Of course, most judges think they are God anyhow.
the louisiana attorney generals office: a JP is empowered to marry people, but is not "required" to do so.

<quoted text>Yup, gotta admire a man who stands up for convictions of his constituents...except maybe when he's a bigot standing up for bigots.
I personally don't see the action he took as admirable. The way I see it is, he took a stand, an unapologetic stand, and now he is reaping the results. A perfect example of cause and effect or.Ö for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction or ... you play you pay.

Those are his convictions and he was willing to jeopardize his job and reputation for them. Convictions do no denote right or wrong, just an ironclad belief. Judging the rightness or wrongness of his convictions is a different matter.
