Covington Catholic Apologizes

The Diocese of Covington released a statement apologizing to the Nick Sandmann and the teenage students who were falsely smeared by the media as racists due to their interaction with Native activist, Nathan Phillips.

After a week of false reporting that lead to death threats, doxxing, and bomb scares, bolstered by the Covington Diocese’s unwillingness to admit they might have been wrong about the students, the diocese finally released a statement formally apologizing to the teens.

The statement, written and signed by Bishop Robert J. Foys, served to retract its previous statements and apologize to Sandmann in particular.

“We are sorry that this situation has caused such disruption in the lives of so many. We apologize to anyone who has been offended in any way by either of our statements which were made with good will based on the information we had,” the statement read, “We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it.”

“I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal,” Bishop Foys continued, “Nicholas unfortunately has become the face of these allegations based on video clips. This is not fair. It is not just.”

Prior to this written apology, many of the Covington Catholic parents had planned to keep their children home from a Catholic Confirmation ceremony, preventing them from joining the Catholic Church.

The Diocese of Covington had put out two previous statements which appeared to pile-on to the media’s narrative about racist teens confronting the Native-man, Phillips, who claimed he was a Vietnam war veteran.

This narrative has completely fallen apart over the last week, as a longer video exonerated the students, and Phillips was outed to be a former refrigerator repairman who never saw Vietnam, and a current radical left wing activist.
