A Dodge County magistrate judge says he’s through performing weddings, because he disagrees with the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
A viewer sent 13WMAZ a video this week showing Judge Lonnie T. Parkerson performing a wedding this week.
In the video, Parkerson tells the couple that theirs is the last wedding he’ll ever perform.
On Friday, he confirmed that to 13WMAZ’s Justin McDuffie. He made a statement about his decision but declined to answer questions on camera.
He said that, because he believes the Bible prohibits same-sex marriage, he can’t take part in one.
Parkerson told the couple that two women recently came to the courthouse for a wedding and he declined to perform the service. He told the pair he was no longer performing marriages.
“I just can’t do it the other way, y’all,” Parkerson tells the last couple he married in the video. “It ain’t right … the Bible tells you what a marriage is.”
