long live the Queen!

Britain has legalized gay marriage after Queen Elizabeth II gave her royal stamp of approval.  The Queen gave the royal assent yesterday, a day after the bill cleared Parliament, paving the way for same-sex marriages in England and Wales.  Apparently it takes a queen to legalize same-sex marriage.  😉

What I find more striking is that a monarchy that has been around since the 9th century has evolved on the issue of same-sex marriage, and yet a country founded in 1776 has yet to make the same move.  Very progressive America…
