King of Spain Excommunicated Himself by Signing Abortion Law...So They Say

But what's the point of a canon that no one bothers to enforce?

Will the King of Spain receive communion next time he goes to Mass?

I bet you he will.

Nobody wants to enforce that canon.

What makes me mad is that the hierarchy does not realize that when they, who are in charge, do not abide by the letter of the law, people will come to hold the law in contempt.

The clergy think they are doing the Church a big favour.

They're not. The King of Spain may have signed his condemnation to hell, but the bishops react as if to say "oh well, no biggy."

And then everyone else will wonder why they aren't given special treatment.

God is no respecter of persons. Our titles, our elected offices, those are just baubles to him. Remember that.
