Catholic News Agency reports that a socialist government official in Andalusia, Spain, called for a local Catholic bishop to be "muzzled" for arguing that men and women are both different and complementary.

Bishop Demetrio Fernandez of Cordoba should be silenced for levelling attacks against "real and effective equality between men and women," charged Miguel Angel Vazquez, a member of the Socialist Party and spokesman for the Andalusian provincial government.

In a Jan. 4 post on his personal blog, Vazquez called the bishop's defence of marriage and the family "backwards," and said that he would "rather burn in hell (if it exists) than renounce equality."
