Wait...last time I looked this is 2009 - not 1959. I hope this judge is disbarred and faces as many charges that apply for his blatant discrimination.

There are two sides to every story: 1.) He is a true rebel who works in the law system, but doesn't obey the law. Answers only to god (the one he has chosen to agree with him). Understands the deep negative sociologial issues when someone uses thier freedom to be themselves. OR 2.) He is a flaming bigot, who feels empowered by his anger that the world is moving toward the truth and away from him.

I am a white man. People should love who they want to love and marry who they want to marry. And, there are hot women in all races...lol

Preserve the races. Don't date, fornicate, marry or have children outside of your race - regardless of what that race is.

There is a wonder, a beauty, and a balance in nature from our racial differences. Blue eyes, blonde hair, red hair, olive skin, and other distinct ethnic and racial characteristics shouldn't be bred out of the population.

Love your own and marry your own while respecting the rights of all races to preserve their unique qualities and characteristics.

Perhaps it is the choice of life they choose? How will they raise the kids, and lets get the full story! Just maybe they were crackheads? Druggies? Or lousy people who should not REPRODUCE?

hot is one thing, productive parts of community, is another! For either race as it goes:)One race or another - good has to be part of it or it isn't worth the time! No piece is worth all the problems that come with it, including lazy cousins, friends, moms, dads, and whatever, & family loser friends they may have...<G>

Nope, race is no problem in America, nope, not at all. Racism is over, gone, it's not an issue anymore. I'm sure Glenn Beck will blame this on Obama - you know, for even mentioning race.

The facts do not lie! The divorce rate is the highest among this type of behavior! Read your Bible this is not God's plan. I think the judge was giving advice to save them hardships and embrassement. But go ahead, just stay out of my front yard!!! Trash breeds trash.

Oh Please, keep your 2000 year old fairytale to yourself.

Show me proof that the divorce rate is higher amongst mixed racial couples...

And you are living proof of your last statement and I assume you are NOT from a mixed marriage...

I wonder if he refuses to sign marriage licenses of people under age 20. They have a very high divorce rate too.
