I was pointed to this article, by a friend, in an online discussion: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/9920238/Queen-to-sign-new-charter-backing-gay-rights.html

You know, there's a certain irony in this. The U.S. was born partly due to discrimination felt by groups like the Pilgrims. They were persecuted in England for their separatist stance against the Anglican Church. The freedom of religion amendment and the separation of church and state are direct results.  Now the more radical of these descendants of a persecuted people are doing the very things which caused their ancestors to create the country in the first place.

On top of it all, the country they rebelled against over freedom is now, arguably more free than their own!
