Moments after approving a new law legalizing gay marriage in England and Wales, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain unleashed a blistering attack on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for "lacking the guts" to do the same.

I still haven't stopped laughing at this.

While I don't think you'd catch the Queen making such a statement publicly, just the thoughts is quite funny. My paternal grandfather had connections to the monarchy, although not a blood connection, through the Queen's parents. To hear his stories, always told with respect and dignity, you know this would never happen. Her Majesty's personal thoughts and beliefs are another thing.

I do however agree with Her Majesty --- Christie, just sign the damn thing. Marriage equality is not just about LGBT rights, it is about human rights.

I feel Gov. Christie took the easy out by saying he will put it to the people to vote on equality .
For the UK Queen to actually be more openly liberal is really something .
Oh well the people wanted Christie ......
Guess they're not liberal either .

The people in New Jersey voted for Governor Christie because he was better than the other choice of Jon Corzine who had raised taxes on us over 100 times during his reign of terror. Those taxes impacted the lives of the rich, poor and middle. Mostly the later two. Do not speak with such knowledge of people or a state when you don't live it.

This topic of gay marriage in New Jersey is a political football used by both sides with little genuine concern for the issue itself but rather how it hurts the other side.

If it is put to a vote in New Jersey I will vote for gay marriage.
