Britain's Queen Elizabeth is making history by coming out in favor of gay rights, CBN News reports. She is endorsing an agreement that applies to all former members of the British empire which opposes "all forms of discrimination, whether rooted in gender, race, color, creed, political belief or other grounds." She is also taking a stand for granting equal rights to girls in the royal succession to the British throne. The timing is considered significant, with Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby on the way. If it is a girl, she could be the next queen.
