When asked if his use of a lesbian couture couple was designed to demonstrate his support of gay marriage in France, Karl Lagerfeld replied, “Of course it was.”
“I don’t even understand the debate. Since 1904 (in France) the church and state have been separate,” Lagerfeld 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.
“I do not understand why people who live together cannot have the same security as those bourgeois who are married,” he told Reuters. “Two women getting married, I find that natural, and having two mothers is a good thing.”
