Queen Elizabeth Signs Gay Marriage Bill

July 17, 2013

So many are ahead of the United States when it comes to full civil rights for gay couples. Even Queen Elizabeth!

Gay marriage became legal Wednesday in England and Wales after Queen Elizabeth II signed a bill approved earlier this week by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Under the new law, gay couples will be able to join together in civil ceremonies or in church services. Same-sex couples are already preparing their unions for this summer.

    Ha! we crossed the ocean , settled in the new land and fought for independence from England not to have to live according with someone else’s religious views. In this instance they did a better job defying the Church locally ,not going thru all that extra trouble 😉
