Gay Marriage in the UK

catholicexchange.com/an-esther-moment/

An interesting column that almost raises a unique point. Wouldn’t it be deliciously ironic if Queen Elizabeth refused to ratify a UK gay marriage law? Think about it, the monarchy in the UK originally took charge of the Church in England (away from the pope) over a dispute about marriage in which the king was guilty of degrading the definition of marriage (its indissolubility). It would be a fine act of penance if the monarchy itself made a last stand in DEFENSE of the meaning of marriage.

Offer it up, your majesty. It’s worth it.

I like how the argument has become a matter of terms.

Marriage is not Her Majesty’s (or anyone else’s) to give-away.

IF IT IS YOURS TO GIVE-AWAY, IT IS MINE TO TAKE AWAY FROM YOU.

WELCOME TO YOUR HYPHENATED LIFE

God’s Spirit is in my heart,
He has called me and set me apart.
This is what I have to do,
what I have to do.

He sent me to give the Good News to the poor,
Tell prisoners that they are prisoners no more,
Tell blind people that they can see,
And set the downtrodden free
And go tell everyone the news that the Kingdom of God has come,
And go tell everyone the news that the Kingdom of God has come.

Just as the Father sent me,
So I’m sending you out to be
My witnesses throughout the world,
The whole of the world.

Don’t worry what you have to say,
Don’t worry because on that day
God’s Spirit will speak in your heart,
Will speak in your heart.
