Fake News: NY Times Writer Solicits Stories On Christian Schools

As many responded to Dan, when will they solicit stories on public schools?

Also, when will they do it on Muslim schools, which are hotbeds for extremist Islam?

Regardless, Dan tried to respond a few times in claiming he wanted good stories, too.

Think any of the good stories will show up? This is essentially a witch hunt due to the Covington affair. If only the same media had spend a 10th of the same time investigating the Obama administration. When they weren’t avoiding, they were surrounding the wagons.

No, it is an attempt to do a hit job on Christian based schools due to far left bias because of one small incident in which kids involved weren’t the ones at fault.

    How much time, I wonder, did The New York Times spend investigating the failures of the Broward County schools following the Stoneman-Douglas shootings? I saw a lot from local Florida papers, but all we heard from the Grey Lady was that we needed more gun control.

    Nothing like telegraphing your bias.

    The Diocese of Covington, in which Covington Catholic High School is located, prohibited the valedictorian and student council president at Holy Cross High School from delivering their proposed graduation addresses. Why? Because the advance copy of their addresses were deemed too political for the event, and possibly because the valedictorian was openly homosexual. (One would have thought that he would have been asked to continue his education elsewhere, but the Diocese didn’t do that.

    Bishop Roger Foys of Covington apologized for his overeager condemnation:

    COVINGTON, Ky. — Diocese of Covington Bishop Roger Foys apologized Friday afternoon for issuing a premature statement about a group of Covington Catholic High School students’ interactions with Native American activists Saturday in Washington, D.C.

    In a letter to Covington Catholic parents, Foys wrote the diocese felt harangued into reacting as quickly as possible to a viral clip of the incident — and then, when additional clips filmed from other perspectives began to circulate, to issuing a just-as-quick retraction of its earlier condemnation.

    “We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it,” he wrote. “I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal. Nicholas unfortunately has become the face of these allegations based on video clips.

    “This is not fair. It is not just.”

    Sandmann, 16, was among a group of Covington Catholic students who had traveled to the capital for the anti-abortion March for Life. While waiting for busses outside the Lincoln Memorial, they became involved in a back-and-forth shouting match with members of a fringe religious group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites. The BHI, who believe they are the “true” Jewish people and are known for anti-gay, anti-Semitic invective, vociferously insulted the students as well as uninvolved passersby.

    Among those passersby were Native American activists participating in their own demonstration, the Indigenous Peoples March. They attempted to intercede between the two groups.

    A short video clip of one activist, Omaha tribe elder Nathan Phillips, playing a traditional drum while face-to-face with a smiling Sandmann, who wore a “Make America Great Again” cap, became the lit fuse on a controversy Bishop Foys said led to an online explosion that damaged the entire diocese.

    There’s more at the original.

    Unfortunately, John Stowe, the Bishop of Lexington, writing on Wednesday, well after the expanded video showed that the Covington Catholic students had not instigated the incident, but simply stood their ground, became public, decided to go ahead and condemn the Covington Catholic students anyway:

    Wearing a Trump hat? That’s not exactly pro-life, says Catholic Bishop John Stowe
    By John Stowe | january 23, 2019 | 07:38 PM EST

    A perennial complaint from participants in the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., is that the secular news media largely ignore this massive protest of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. In light of the viral news story of last weekend, of a group of Catholic high school students from Kentucky in a confrontation with a Native American elder after this year’s march, that claim no longer holds.

    As the leader of the Catholic Church in the 50 counties of Central and Eastern Kentucky, I join the Diocese of Covington and other Catholic leaders in apologizing in the wake of this incident.

    I am ashamed that the actions of Kentucky Catholic high school students have become a contradiction of the very reverence for human life that the march is supposed to manifest. As such, I believe that U.S. Catholics must take a look at how our support of the fundamental right to life has become separated from the even more basic truth of the dignity of each human person.

    Without engaging the discussion about the context of the viral video or placing the blame entirely on these adolescents, it astonishes me that any students participating in a pro-life activity on behalf of their school and their Catholic faith could be wearing apparel sporting the slogans of a president who denigrates the lives of immigrants, refugees and people from countries that he describes with indecent words and haphazardly endangers with life-threatening policies.

    We cannot uncritically ally ourselves with someone with whom we share the policy goal of ending abortion.

    I doubt that it is only these students who are not aware that the pro-life movement got its start among peace activists who saw their opposition to abortion as a natural extension of opposition to all forms of violence.

    There’s more at the link, but basically His Excellency, The Most Reverend John Stowe, condemned the wearing of MAGA hats by the CCHS students. I find this hypocritical of His Excellency, because Bishop Stowe has been a frequent and vocal advocate of homosexuality, something explicitly condemned in the Bible and by the Church. Regrettably, I live in the Diocese of Lexington, but at least I have been openly critical of Bishop Stowe’s defiance of Church teaching.
