Best response to Covington Student incident from a Bishop

The best response from a representative of the Catholic Church about the Covington students comes to us in the form of two tweets from Bishop Rick Stika of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Knoxville, Tennessee. He recounts the story of a priest who was an eye-witness at the event.

I spoke to a good priest friend of mine who was part of his group at the March for Life. He was in front of the group from Covington. He was the priest heckled by the Black Hebrew Israelites with slurs like white faggot and child rapists and other horrific slurs. The boys wanted to protect the priest and his group from this bigoted attack so they formed a barrier and then the Native American who earlier tried to disrupt Mass appeared and the rest is history. It was not about the MAGA hat buts rather bigots who were attacking verbally those who marched.

Everyone is posting the tweets on Facebook, but tweets are hard to read, sorry. It has become a standardized format, but call me old-fashioned. I like to read paragraphs like a human being, not consume packets like a processor.

Well, the good Bishop's story confirms what we already know. And if you have a hard time believing that a bunch of violent nuts in a cult might hurl expletives at a Catholic priest, you need to get out more.
