Bardwell, speaking to CNN affiliate WBRZ, said he was advised "that I needed to step down because they was going to take me to court, and I was going to lose."Yawn. Good riddance.
"I would probably do the same thing again," he said. "I found out I can't be a justice of the peace and have a conscience."
...[Bardwell] told CNN affiliate WAFB that he had no regrets about the decision. "It's kind of hard to apologize for something that you really and truly feel down in your heart you haven't done wrong," he said.
..."I'm not a racist," he said. "I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house. My main concern is for the children."
