Bermudian Newspaper Gives Superb Clap Back to Critics of Gay Marriage



After a court in Bermuda ruled that a ban on gay marriage was discriminatory, the island’s Royal Gazette newspaper was ready with a superb response to critics.

Many locals had opposed the ruling believing that a great and terrible disaster might now be visited upon the island.


*Spoiler Alert*


Nothing happened.


But the Royal Gazette used an editorial to remind everyone of just that.

“At not long after lunchtime yesterday, a casual look outdoors revealed the sky was not falling; nor was it red. 
Upon further inspection, a saunter towards the coastlines revealed there was no tsunami hurtling towards Bermuda to send us whence we came. 
In fact, it was a most spectacular Bermuda day; beach weather on Cinco de Mayo.
And an expensively priced bag of crisps was still expensively priced. 
In short, the Supreme Court provided the foundation for a same-sex marriage to take place in Bermuda in the future and no one died. Nothing changed. 
But for a couple in love.”



Huge congratulations to the LGBTI community in Bermuda, because this hasn’t been an easy fight, and it’s by no mean over even with this latest good news.
