|Equality man: There he goes...|
Desiring 'equality' with God led to his expulsion from Heaven. In desiring 'equality' he lost God forever. In desiring 'equality' he became the chief adversary of God.
Similarly, the calls of advocates of 'gay marriage' for 'equality' make those who advocate it adversaries of marriage, the Church and even God Himself, since marriage was raised high to a Sacrament by Christ and it was ordained that a man and a woman be married 'since the beginning'. Even those using the language of 'equality' to endorse same sex civil unions are surely doing marriage and the Church a great disservice.
It is silly to discuss heterosexual marriage in terms of being 'better' than 'gay marriage'. It is simply the case that marriage by its very nature requires the couple to each be members of the opposite sex for the procreation of children, the transmission of new life. It is only in that relationship that children can be born. What hypocrisy there is concerning 'equality' in this country anyway! If people really advocate 'equality' then how come 90% of unborn downs syndrome babies are aborted in the UK.
Each person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, even equal dignity, for all are made in the image and likeness of God, but even then, it is only the Holy Father for whom one would genuflect on the left knee. We should only kiss the Episcopal rings of Bishops and Cardinals. We might not do it for bin men, but then we wouldn't do it for anyone who wasn't a Bishop, Cardinal or Pope. We call the Queen, Your Majesty. We have a myriad of titles for Our Blessed Lady with which we honour her. There is clearly a hierarchy in Heaven, a hierarchy on Earth in the Church and outside of the Church, in authorities. Not everyone in the police force is a chief constable. Not every Freemason is 33rd degree, which is why it is strange that so many of them must be forcing this stuff down the population's throats.
