It’s not surprising when queens are “for gay marriage”.

Historically, the Monarchy has been full of gays for centuries-and they have been marrying( albeit for appearances), is anyone surprised? Wonder how the Muslims who are taking over Great Britain feel about this? Although they practice homosexuality ‘unofficially’.

Well queenie, how about polygamy and incest marriage for the next step down the slippery slope? What a shame to see what was once one of the World's great nations bow to PC.

BTW, I couldn't care less about the royal family and never have, even Princess Diana, although she did some good. I've long wondered why the British even give a crap about their over-indulgent and silly royalty nowadays. They long ago stopped having any influence in the political process. Why should anyone care?

What's with the Britons? Guess a cultural thing. But then, we have the baby watch on all news channels for Princess-who-gives-a-shit. So what? Babies are born everyday, except for those who kill them in the womb.

Maybe it's a case of learning from the past when they were behind the times of the Colonialists and other conquests and control, and now trying to make up for it with coddling Islamists and political correct types? Pfft.

The Rulers of once Great Britain don't care what the Muslims think any more than they care what the Homosexualists think. They are only using the Muslims and Homosexualists as batter rams to knock down Western Civilization.

"Seems that the free world has a tougher time winning in peacetime than winning during a war. Too much time on their hands I guess."

You know what, you hit it squarely on the head. Robert Bork's book, "Slouching Towards Gomorrah - Modern Liberalism and American Decline" cleary states why we have sunk into socialism. It's kinda old (1996), but is even more relevant today and it explains why the children of the Boomer generation went so far off the path with their 60's radicalism and beyond.

To summarize: The boomers were successful and wanted the best for their children, so they over-indulged them. With little financial worries; no taught work ethic; questionable moral developement; few demands on them as in chores/duty; and no direction they tried to find something new. They embraced socialism and actually communism. If you like, I will give you an example of a failed commune near Los Angeles during the late 60's. Saw it first hand.

Bork's book is very enlightening as to how we got so far away from our Constitutional roots and workable society values and that was back in 1996 after the libs "Borked" him out of a USSC nomination.

Which lead to Anthony Kennedy being on the bench to vote against REAL marriage.....

It's a pretty scant article -- one sentence, no details. I'll have to wait and see, since there is nothing in the DailyMail, which is usually all over anything controversial.

BTW, if this is true and Liz has a gay grandson, there could one day be two queens on the throne.

Of course he could.

An heir to the throne can be or do anything he wants - except be a Catholic, which is the only disqualification.

Full of?

There have been three on the British throne for which a case has been made: William II, Edward II, James I.

That's maybe 3 out of about 60.

The Queen has no power to withhold her assent from an Act approved by Parliament, unless she is advised that it is unconstitutional. In her 60 odd years as monarch she’s probably had to assent to a lot more Acts of which she privately disapproves than those of which she approves. We will never know, since the Queen does not have public opinions.

Remember how they used to hang the blood-stained sheet out the window to prove consummation and the bride's virginity? I would hate to see the stained sheet from the "consummation" of one of these "marriages."

Legalizing gay marriage while simultaneously turning over swaths of your nation to Islamists who are violently opposed to homosexuality. Yeah, that’s going to work out well in the future.

UK never followed the True Church, anyway. Only man-made churches from the 1500's.

Royal assent does not imply personal approval. The monarch is apolitical, and constitutionally required to give assent to laws passed by Parliament.

Assuming she objects, the Queen probably made that known to the prime minister prior to the bill being read in Parliament. She has the right to advise him. But once it passes the legislature and the House of Lords, she has no further say.

Politically speaking, Northern Ireland does not have the wild liberalism of England. So, I assume Northern Ireland is still straight, hope so.

Wales and Scotland are probably going along with it, unfortunately. Scotland is going to have a vote from what I understand to leave the United Kingdom.

Brings to mind what I think is the truth behind the famous quote (below) with uncertain origin:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.

Thanks for sharing the relevancy of Bork's book (I read his "Tempting of America, the Political Seduction of the Law" which helped inspire me to go after a law degree.)

I also see these truths prophesied in the Bible:

Chapters 2 & 3 of the Book of Revelation lay out the seven ages of what would be the next 2000 years. I believe the Philadelphia age (Philadelphia church age) ended around 1900. In the period before 1900 America and in a sense the whole world began to go "from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance."

Since around 1900, I believe have we entered into (and are now in) the seventh and last age, the Laodicean age. This is the age where people say to themselves "I am rich and my wealth is increasing and have need of nothing" (Rev 3:17). It is truly astonishing the industrial and technological advances we have seen in the last 100 years, never before seen in the history of the world. We can do and have things now that people even 200 years ago could hardly even dream about. You can basically go anywhere and do anything you want to in air conditioned comfort.

This is the period where people have gone "from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage." Likewise, Jesus in response to these people's thoughts says, "[You] do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked" (Rev 3:17) and then in love and grace counsels them what to do.

I agree. She had an opportunity to show leadership in vetoing it, or whatever the analogous term is in GB. I was an admirer of hers—until today.
