Bastille Day shame
To the Editor: “European leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel joined French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday for the traditional Bastille Day military parade in Paris”. Union Leader 7/15. Attacking the French prison was an attack against Catholicism, an attack against monarchy, and an attack on the liberty of decent, God-fearing Frenchmen. Those wicked armies of the Republic, led by Jacobins, killed thousands of Catholics- clergy, nuns and laity. The king and queen were beheaded, their young son left to die in prison. Churches were looted. Clergy were sent running. Any remaining priests were forced to swear allegiance to the French state instead of the Pope.
