Update on the hideous incident involving pro-Trump, MAGA hat-wearing high school students from Covington, Kentucky, who harassed Native American elder and Vietnam Veteran, Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial Mall yesterday.
Covington Catholic High School is the only Catholic school in the diocese, so the the church is definitely getting involved.
Thankfully, expulsion is on the table.
From local news station WLWT5:
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington, along with the school, acknowledged the situation Saturday afternoon, saying the matter is being investigated.
Laura Keener, of the diocese, released the following statement:
“We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.
“The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement.”
