“We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it,” Foys wrote in the letter cited by news outlets. “I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family, as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal.” Newsweek
This is embarrassing. A grown man never learned how to deal with bullies. How do you get to be his age without learning to deal with them? Was he from the privileged elite? Went to an elite private school? This bishop (small ‘b’ because he does not deserve the title) thinks he was bullied? Maybe if he knew anything about his faith… maybe if he’d ever read the New Testament… he would know real bullying — the kind experienced by Jesus Christ while on earth. THAT is bullying. And Jesus stood up to it.
This was your flock, bishop Foys! The flock you were supposed to lead and protect. You failed miserably. Because you were ‘bullied’. Please give examples of the bullying you suffered. You are obviously not shepherd material. That’s what a bishop is supposed to be, a shepherd. You are just a paid sheep-herder who flees at the slightest hint of opposition.
Hey bishop Foys, how about you try to follow the example of your Lord and Savior? You are a pathetic excuse for a Catholic, a bishop, a man, and a human being.
