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.

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.
