Stowe was the third bishop to condemn the boys, as the dioceses of Covington and Louisville also denounced them shortly after a brief excerpt of hours of footage of the incident went viral on social media.

"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".

'I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family, as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal. "It is not just", Foys wrote.

In his overtly partisan essay titled "Pro-Lifers Should Not Sport Slogans of President Who Denigrates and Endangers Immigrants", Bishop John Stowe, a Franciscan and pro-LGBT activist, said he was "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". We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most honest apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement. The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion. "All of this based again on a video".

The school was closed on Tuesday due to security concerns and reopened on Wednesday under close police supervision.

Scientists found Earth’s oldest rock on Moon
Once that information sinks in, imagine how the trajectory of the rock billions of years ago when asteroids hit our planet. Kring expects that some geologists in the scientific community won't accept the finding because it seems controversial.

The video of the confrontation surfaced January 18. The group was filmed later that day outside the Lincoln Memorial, where bellicose members of a fringe religious movement called the Black Hebrew Israelites began insulting them as well as nearby Native American activists participating in the Indigenous Peoples March for the rights of native communities.

Immediately after the incident, Phillips himself portrayed the students as bigoted and claimed they chanted "build the wall" - something the students denied and NBC News was unable to verify. One parent said he tried to intervene to defuse the situation.

"You know, I don't spend a lot of time, I must tell you, around Catholic school children, but I do not get what Catholic priests see in these kids", Maher said to cheers and applause.

He added: 'I can't say that I'm sorry for listening to him and standing there. "Students must grapple with this history and ask themselves how they are going to live differently".

Phillips is offering to travel to Covington Catholic High School to talk about the importance of respecting diverse cultures, according to a statement from the Lakota People's Law Project.
