‘Refrigerator Warrior‘ Nathan Phillips has lost one of the last bastions of virtue signalling adherents. The Gateway Pundit reports, “Roger Foys, the Bishop of Covington finally apologized to Nick Sandmann and other Covington students who were smeared with an edited video after initially condemning the teens.”
It’s true the Covington HS MAGA Teens aren’t in jail, but they might as well be since their school has been closed and the teens are in virtual hiding because of deranged liberal threats of harm. The USA Today reports, “Covington Catholic closes Tuesday, first school day after D.C. incident.”
“After meeting with local authorities, we have made the decision to cancel school and be closed on Tuesday, January 22, in order to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff,” reads a letter from school principal Robert Rowe, obtained by WXIX-TV, Fox19 in Cincinnati.
And still the Archdiocese of Baltimore refuses to apologize for jumping to the conclusion that the Covington MAGA Teens were at fault. Perhaps the Church Leadership should read their own Catholic Catechism.
Every offense committed against justice and truth entails the duty of reparation, even if its author has been forgiven. When it is impossible publicly to make reparation for a wrong, it must be made secretly. If someone who has suffered harm cannot be directly compensated, he must be given moral satisfaction in the name of charity. This duty of reparation also concerns offenses against another’s reputation. This reparation, moral and sometimes material, must be evaluated in terms of the extent of the damage inflicted. It obliges in conscience.
Is @archbalt immune from making a mistake? The facts have shown that these boys DID NOT act in the manner that you have criticized. Virtually all of the negative reporting has been recanted. You owe these boys the "dignity" of an apology, otherwise your words mean nothing.
