Gay Marriage Should Not Be Such A Big Deal

bjorn_borg_two_priests.jpg

Is it really that difficult to let two people who love each other live their lives they way they choose? After all, what business do people have sticking their noses into the business of others? Is it really so hard to just live one's life and allow others to live theirs without judgment? If two people love each other, who are we to judge?

While a marriage between two male priest performed by a female priest may not yet be as innocuous as the next, Swedish fashion designer Bjorn Borg asks us to envision such a world.

Must we be so judgmental of others? Can't we just appreciate the happiness and love shared between two people? Is it really that difficult?

For many, it's comforting to believe that their god mandates their own fear and intolerance. The intolerance is a defense mechanism to prop up a terrified ego.

Borg, although biologically Swedish, is a resident of Monoco both for taxation and whatever representation the monarchy there allows. Or at least he was when he made enough money to be taxed at the Swedish rates so beloved by Paul Krugman.
The issue of gay marriage (or heterosexual marriage for that matter) will only be resolved when the government is not part of the process. Who was the fool who gave them authority anyway? Let churches and sea captains do it. Or go back to the original notion that the priest was merely another witness, and the two people (keeping marriage from ménage a troises)married each other without licenses and the rest of the state's bureaucratic folderol.

If your imaginary desert sky ghost friend tells you right is wrong and 2+2=5, then yes, you must be judgemental of others. You wouldn't want a sinner's happiness to cost you your reserved space on a cloud, would you?

Can you believe it? This ad will not be shown on tv in ... the Netherlands. Yes, Holland, where (almost) anything used to be possible. ''Two priests marrying, that is very controversial,'' states René de Bruin, the general manager of Björn Borg Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg). ''The Netherlands is our biggest market. We'd like to keep it that way by not offending any parts of the population.''
Americans especially must laugh real hard now. Sad though.

yes of course and if anybody DARE disagree with you then they are haters,fools, or are intolerant but the same doesnt apply to you does it? such openmindedness. Your very tolerant unless it disagrees with your idiotic beliefs. Gay marriage is wrong and to elevate it to the level of a societal cornerstone is beyond ignorant.

I don't mind if people disagree with me. My entire point is that people should be able to live their lives the way they want without facing judgment from others just as you are free to express your opinion on this matter without fear of having your opinion labeled "beyond ignorant."
