Death to equality and equality in death

I once said I only believed in equality in the eyes of God but I don't believe even in that anymore (the BVM, the beloved disciple?) but I do believe every one of us is equally because infinitely important and therefore equally deserving of, in one sense, respect. Not in the sense of the respect that you have to deserve. In the sense of respect that all men and women are automatically entitled to it. And of course we are all equally going to die. Alan Bennett's Headmaster in 40 Years On referred to the glorious equality of death.
