Children; pawns in a religious war

I see the Holy Cross ‘priest hero’, Father Aidan Troy, is being moved to a new position in Paris.

I’ve always had a problem with the events at Holy Cross where parents, with the active support of Fr. Troy, used their children as pawns in a religious war.

I remember seeing those terrified children forced by their Catholic parents to run a daily gauntlet through a Protestant tribal area.

Whatever about adults engaging in a primitive religious war, there is no justification whatsoever for abusing children in this manner.
