Queen Elizabeth Rules Out Gay Marriage In UK

The legalization of same-sex marriage has been ruled out by Queen Elizabeth II in England because of her deeply held Christian values, a close friend has reportedly told a London-based newspaper.

The unnamed “friend” said the monarch was frustrated by the fact that she could only “advise and warn” on the issue.

“It was the ‘marriage’ thing that she thought was wrong, because marriage ought to be sacrosanct between a man and a woman,” said the friend.

“Those in civil partnerships can choose to convert their relationships to marriage, via a procedure expected to be in place by the end of the year, but are under no obligation to do so.”

“The law prohibits the Church of England from performing same-sex weddings, and allows other religious organisations to refuse to perform them.”
