Karl Lagerfeld Endorses Gay Marriage

This morning at the end of his spring 2013 show in Paris’s vast Grand Palais, German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld closed his Chanel couture Spring Summer 2013 collection with two identical brides holding hands.

The Associated Press reports:

Asked if his use of lesbian couture at his show was designed to support gay marriage in France, Lagerfeld replied: ?Of course it was.?

?I don?t even understand the debate. Since 1904 (in France) the church and state have been separate,? the German-born designer told The Associated Press. He said people who consider marriage a sacred religious union can continue that tradition in their churches, temples, synagogues and mosques, but that all religions should tolerate gay marriage.

However, Lagerfeld also said he opposes allowing gay couples to father children born through artificial insemination.
