If it is wrong to bow to RC factors, is it ok to bow to Protestant?
When I am performing my employers business, I am required to go into court.
If a hearing is in session, it is protocol to bow to the Bench as a mark of respect for their authority. ‘The Bench’ is merely symbolic of the authority enshrined in English Law and Parliament.
I am not worshipping the bench, I am bowing as a servant of the law and a citizen to whom it represents.
That is EXACTLY THE SAME CRITERIA that I use when I bow to the Cross and the Tabernacle. I am not bowing to a cross, I am bowing to the authority of Christ as co-heir, servant of God and citizen of the Kingdom and authority
Should I tell my employers that I can no longer show my respect to the Judiciary and Law of England as the Protestants say it is idolatory?
If I do that, they will say 'so if the Protestants object, why do they also bow to the Bench when they walk into court when they are in session?
I would have to reply something in the veign of 'well I suppose because the Bench and English Law which they represent, are not exclusively Catholic.
So does it mean that by definition and logic, it is not the fact of the artefact which is bowed to, but the fact it is Roman Catholic?
Therefore, can I conclude that objections are based purely on bigotry and discrimination of my right to be different?
This is getting awefully complicated. Can someone help me out please.
