Update On King Juan Carlos Of Spain
And Father Ike opens fire

Here's most of the article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine)
“The world is watching!” Pro-Life Leader Warns Spanish King
King Juan Carlos is required to sign recently passed pro-abortion legislation before it becomes law

FRONT ROYAL, VA, March 2, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) — After successfully passing the Spanish parliament, new legislation that would significantly liberalize Spain’s abortion laws is headed to the desk of the Head of State, King Juan Carlos de Borbon, for his signature.

The situation is complicated, however, by the fact that King Carlos is a practicing Catholic. The Spanish bishops declared in November of last year that those Catholic politicians who voted in favor of the pro-abortion bill would have excommunicated themselves, leading some of the Spanish press to speculate whether the king might also be excommunicated for affixing his signature to the bill.

In February of this year the king was urged by a group of Catholic theologians not to sign the legislation, at the peril of being complicit in allowing the murder of countless unborn children.

Now that the legislation has passed Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, the President of the world’s largest pro-life organization, Human Life International (HLI) is also adding his voice to the chorus calling on the monarch not to sign the bill.

“The world is watching,” said Euteneuer, to see whether King Carlos
“will abdicate his moral leadership of the nation and sign the death warrants of millions more Spanish babies who will be killed by abortion.“

Euteneuer pointed out: “He has already been complicit, by his signature, in the deaths of millions in the first abortion law he signed in 1985 and other immoral legislation such as law authorizing same sex marriage in 2005.”

Juan Carlos of Spain is expected by many to sign. Many, including some of Spain’s Catholic bishops, citing articles 62 and 91 of the Spanish Constitution, have said that Juan Carlos has little leeway, and simply must endorse any legislation that comes his way as his position is largely ceremonial.

Human Life International is arguing, however that this position is erroneous. In exercising his office, King Carlos does not lose the rights and duties inherent to the human person, nor those inherent in being a Catholic, said Euteneuer, adding that the king has the right and the duty to act in conformity to his conscience as a Catholic.

“All the Catholic Kings of Spain, especially Ferdinand and Isabella, would be horrified at the possibility of signing such murderous legislation and will stand in fierce judgment of a king who abdicates his moral responsibility to his people in such an act,” said Rev. Euteneuer.

HLI pointed out that there is precedent for conscientious objection to immoral legislation among the royalty of Europe. Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg suffered the removal of his powers for taking such a stand last year, refusing to sign a bill which would have legalized Euthanasia in Luxembourg. Likewise, King Baudoin of Belgium stepped down from his office in 1990 while the Belgian Parliament legalized abortion.

Human Life International is also calling upon the Spanish Episcopal Conference to issue a declaration that Juan Carlos de Borbón has incurred excommunication if he should sign this law authorizing the murder of even more Spanish innocents.

Execution of the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Communist militiamen at Cerro de los Ángeles near Madrid, on 7 August 1936, was the most famous of the widespread desecration of images and Churches.

There is an excellent book out recently called, "The Pope's Legion", which details out the papal armies in action.

Not myself being well studied in history and especially in Catholic history, I don't remember the facts well enough to put forth more than one from the book.

One of the soldiers with Custer at the Little Big Horn had fought in the Pope's Legion. When the Indians were scalping and taking items from the dead troopers after their victory, and came across this one soldier, they recognized a papal medal on his shirt. Upon this recognition, they honored him and did not scalp him.

Looks as if the King of Spain just signed abortion into law.

This act brings doubts to my mind about his masculinity ... possibly he has a stable of male sex partners. If not, then how soon will such a thing develop? If gayness is the consequence of sin, as St Paul informs us, then at some point all these abortion politicians and rulers would be crossing over to the darkside.
