  • Queen Elizabeth: Same-Sex Marriage Is 'Wonderful'

    "Well, who’d have thought 62 years ago when I came to the throne, I’d be signing something like this? Isn’t it wonderful?" - Queen Elizabeth II 


    Officially, Queen Elizabeth II has never spoken publicly about marriage equality, which is now the law of the land in England. The "royals" are supposed to remain politically nuetral. But according to Brittish comedian Stephen Fry, the queen, who will turn 90 in April, is both surprised and pleased by the historic turn of events. 

    Stephen was a guest on The Jonathan Ross Show last Saturday, giving an account of his own recent wedding to comedian Elliott Spencer, when he tantalized the audience with a peek into the Queen's personal opinion of gay marriage.

    "It was only last summer that Her Majesty The Queen gave the Royal Assent," Stephen told the host. "When the Queen signed the Royal Assent for the Equal Marriages Act, allowing gay people to marry for the first time, she put it down and said 'Well, who’d have thought 62 years ago when I came to the throne, I’d be signing something like this? Isn’t it wonderful?'"

    According to Gay Star News, Stephen characterized his source for the queen's comment as "well-founded."

      So Queenie finally flipped her cookies, huh? Somebody must have burst in while she was on the throne. I was outraged when the Muzzrats put a fatwah out on her. Now, after this madness I’m not so sure.

      The title ‘Queen’ is a proper noun, so please use a capital ‘Q’. Also, please note, ‘British’ is spelt with one t, not two!

      HRH Queen Elizabeth II has far more intelligence and respect for human rights and dignity than Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and a thousand times more intelligence and compassion than the miscreant on the US Supreme Court Clarence Thomas who not only is devoted to pornography but harassing interns as with Anita Hill. Both Moore and Thomas should be impeached and the Queen applauded.

      So, in other words, “We Are Amused!”

      Pope? “No!”
      Queen? “Wonderful!”
      Henry VIII was right all along.

      Good by, Jesuits.
      Hello, Henry et al.

      Queen Elizabeth II has had some bad moments in her long reign, most glaring being the Crown’s response to the death of Princess Diana. But, overall, one must say she has shown a good and proper face to her subjects. If this reaction to Marriage Equality in England is accurate, this American will stand and applaud.
