Couple denied marriage

Hammond Star: A Tangipahoa Parish justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple because of concern for the children who might be born.
"Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace for Tangipahoa Parish’s 8th Ward, also said it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long," according to the Hammond Star article.
Beth Humphrey, 30, said she and her boyfriend, Terence McKay, 32, both of Hammond, intend to file a discrimination complaint.
