I understand what Grand Duke did, he is very catholic like his family, but he is not any person, he is a head of a State and I think he never must give support to anything so openly like he did. It can be dangerous for monarchy.

As I understand it the majority of his people wanted it, therefore it was his responsibility as head of state to sign the law.

I'm glad he stood by his values and I see it as strength of character.

Of course, he's not. But, anyway, what people in Luxembourg think about that? There was any opinion poll ro sth like that?

I think that the Grand Duke should stand on his beliefs and not bend to the wishes of others. As a Roman Catholic, I am glad he is standing up for his beliefs.

Luxemburg has enacted legalisation of euthanasia:

I'm a Protestant, and I'm also thankful that the Grand Duke has the courage to refuse to sign a document that he does not and cannot support.

Too much emphasis on the "right to freedom" gave a sky-rocketing rise to (intense) stupidity among humans. (excuse my words, sorry)

That is because "it" is always used to justify the statement "We can do whatever we want because each of us has the right to be free". So does anyone mean because we're free, we can do any kind of sin/immorality as long as it doesn't hurt others / as long as it benefits others?

If your answer is Yes, how then do you understand this verse from the Bible:

1 Peter 2:16 "As free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice , but as bondservants of God." ?

I hope that GD Henri has stood up to his decision of not agreeing with euthanasia's passage until the end, not because he fears being excommunicated but because he believes that the most important thing is to consider what God would feel if he agrees to that. He may be persecuted by people but... God above praises him if he really stood firm on that decision. And besides, what is people's praise compared to God's praise? God bless GD Henri : )
