This kid wasn't used, he asked to go...
Christ will use homever he chooses. His parents didn't force him, as you read it...it was this brave young boy's choice.
On the other hand...he could have stayed home watching MTV and playing Grand Theft Auto like most 10 year olds in America while his parents get ready to go party on "Good" Friday night.
This boy wasn't used, except by God. He shames the adults who failed to do anything to stop this atrocity!
FReepers and Conservatives do NOT USE their children in protests.
Our children are raised with values, morals, and the ability to make up their own minds.
While my sons did not become so strongly involved in this issue - there have been many times THEY have come to me with situations I was not aware of - FURIOUS and wanting to take action.
Using children - that would be the Lefties you must be thinking about.

God was not wrong to use Joshua.
1 Samuel 17:14 And David was the youngest...
When I was ten years old, I knew the difference between right and wrong.
It appears from this article that the black-robed thug who demanded that the boy abase himself before the feet of the "omnipotent judge" doesn't know the difference between right and wrong.
But it DOES apparently know how to throw its vile weight around in its little drama theatre (courtroom).
ping. a probe.
I am often amazed at the things my children say and do. We are kind to them and try to raise them right. Then, out of the blue, we see them extend kindness to others. It warms a parents heart and often dumb founds people who don't have the same type actions from their children. Homeschooling definately helps.
It was Almighty God who used this child (not his parents) to show the rest of us what real courage and conviction looks like.
Out of the mouths of babes you shall find the truth.
