'Judge Judy' blesses gay marriage, causing us to question our 'People's Court' preference

by Jeremy Hooper

    When asked about her thoughts on gay marriage yesterday evening by CNN's Larry King, syndicated television's Judge Judy had this to say:

"Who is it hurting? You know, my grandmother used to say who is it hurting? So, I ask you, Larry, if you have two adults and they happen to both be of the same sex and they love each other and they want to set up a home with each other they have as much of a shot as heterogeneous couples do. Fifty-two percent of marriages end in divorce, you know. So if it works it works. If it doesn't, it doesn't. And if it's important for them to use the word marriage, rather than civil union or whatever other language that some people would prefer that they use I ask you it's not hurting me. It doesn't impact on my life. Why is there such a big fuss about it? Why are people so invested in it? I just don't get the negativity. I don't get it."

   No word on the queer nuptial thoughts of Judge Wapner, Judge Hatchett, Judge Joe Brown, or Judge Reinhold, though we promise to let you know as soon as they go public with their sentiments.
