Today, the two Christian Democrats Göran Hägglund (Party leader) and Stefan Attefall finally stated their opinion on same sex marriages in the Swedish newspaper SvD. Not very surprisingly, the answer is no – at least for now. They motivate their stand on their opinion that the State should not be neutral when it comes to how a society ought to be formed. The foundation for a good and healthy society, so they say, is the family. To me that can be true for some people, but for others the answer is of course more complicated than that. Different people have different choices and it should NOT be up to the State to intervene in people’s own private choices. This will now hinder the government to change Swedish laws to the better. The Christian Democrats have already bottom-low ranking on the polls; I don’t think the voters will approve to this and I don’t think this will give the boost in popularity I think Hägglund and the rest intended it to constitute.
