The Louisiana Justice of the Peace who refused to marry an interracial couple has resigned.  Keith Bardwell refused to perform the honors when Terrence McKay and Beth Humphrey got hitched.


Bardwell has acknowledged he routinely recuses himself from marrying interracial couples because he believes such marriages cause harm to the couples’ children.


Another justice of the peace eventually married the couple.


Humphrey and McKay have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Bardwell.
