I would only disagree that Gral. Franco «by all accounts, ...did a fair job readying the young prince to become a democratic Catholic monarch.» Franco made Juan-Carlos swear allegiange to the anti-democratic, Catholic, corporatist ideals of the National Movement. Immediately upon becoming King, Juan-Carlos perjured himself, taking the democratic road to Revolution. The end result is a weakened Church, divorce, abortion on demand, «marriage» for unrepentant sodomites and all the rest of the culture of death. Indeed, it could be argued that by signing the abortion law, Juan-Carlos ceased to be a Catholic and by that act ceased to be King, since the Constitution requires the Monarch to be Catholic.
