Then Excommunicate Him
Yes, it really is that simple

A writ of excommunication is what's needed for King Juan Carlos of Spain. No beating around the bush, no ambivalence, no vague statements with wiggle-room built in. Just come right out and excommunicate his ass. Period.

Here's some of the article from the Catholic News Service; (Emphasis mine)
King of Spain 'cooperating with evil' by signing abortion law, says bishop

Madrid, Spain, Mar 9, 2010 / 03:06 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Alcala de Henares remarked this week that by signing a bill into law that dramatically liberalizes abortion in Spain, King Juan Carlos has actively cooperated with the evil of abortion.

Despite numerous requests that the Spanish monarch refuse to sign the bill, King Juan Carlos put his signature to the new measure during a private ceremony last weekend. The law will take effect in July.

During an interview with Intereconomia TV on Saturday, Bishop Reig Pla openly commented, “What (the King) has done constitutes remote cooperation with evil.”

“The King should have thought about whether or not he was cooperating with the implementation of a law that will cause the death of innocent people,” the bishop said, noting that the King could have chosen a different option. “He could have refused to sign it, saying that his conscience came before signing a law that will not bring about good.”

Bishop Reig Pla rejected claims by some bishops that the King had no choice because of the constitutional requirement that he must sign duly passed laws. The new law “will not only make the abortion situation worse, but it will also lead to the imposition of sexual education in the classroom, as well as gender ideology, which is this government’s calling card.”

Look at the key word, "remote." I am no canon lawyer, but AFAIK remote cooperation doesn't meet the requirement in canon law of material cooperation which is grounds for excommunication latae sententiae.

Ln the other hand, I think the bishop wimped out because IMHO signing an abortion bill into law is material cooperation with a grave evil just as being an abortion doctor or nurse or even someone driving a woman to an abortuary for an abortion is material cooperation with grave evil.

This is a shameful situation, both the King's actions and the Bishop's inaction.

And to see the King in a photo with the goon from Venezuela! This is just too much . . . .

Italy has to wait and see who is the most likely to win, haha!! On a more serious note, King Don Coward, oops I mean Carlos, missed the golden oportunity to prove that he isn't just some obscure figure head but actually a man with cajones. Sure he would have lost his throne, still I'd rather be known as a man with balls than a king!!
