A Georgia city councilman who has vehemently denounced interracial marriage – saying it makes his “blood boil” – has resigned ahead of a recall election, according to reports.

Hoschton City Councilman Jim Cleveland said he wanted to leave his office on his own accord Tuesday rather than let voters decide his political future next month, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“I’m not going to give them the pleasure of saying they recalled Mr. Cleveland,” he told the newspaper.

Cleveland’s resignation comes months after he divulged his feelings about interracial marriage during a heated city council meeting in May.

“I’m a Christian and my Christian beliefs are you don’t do interracial marriage,” Cleveland said. “That’s the way I was brought up and that’s the way I believe. I have black friends, I hired black people. But when it comes to all this stuff you see on TV, when you see black and whites together, it makes my blood boil because that’s just not the way a Christian is supposed to live.”
