Grand Duke of Luxembourg to be stripped of remaining powers

Luxembourg's politicians, determined to force through the legalization of euthanasia recently approved by parliament, intend to strip Grand Duke Henri, apparently a faithful Catholic like Queen Sofia of Spain, of his remaining constitutional powers after he warned that he would not sign such a bill. It is particularly irritating that even those who personally opposed the bill, like Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker himself, are committed to this step, indicating that ultimately their highest loyalty is to their real god of "Democracy," rather than either their Sovereign or their conscience.

That is so sad. This is just one step closer to abolishing the monarchy altogether.

What is going on here is anti-Catholicism, anti-Life and not democracy but a step toward non-democratic rule by the bigoted left.
