    Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram “IHS”--symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.

    As of Wednesday afternoon, the “IHS” monogram that had previously adorned the stage at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall was still covered up--when the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by CNSNews.com.

    Isn't that interesting. We've seen obama pro homosexual, pro islam, and now,, what is that, some kind of anti christian, he doesn't want to be associated with the name of Jesus.

    This really does seem, if true, to be political correctness taken too far. The funny thing is that, as the article suggests, Gaston Hall is replete with Christian/Catholic symbolism. Not only is the IHS abbreviation in a variety of locations, but also there are Jesuit statues and paintings everywhere. A Jewish friend of mine, who did a lecture in Gaston Hall, described the entire room as "intimidating". If there was a concern about the President being associated with religious symbolism, somebody should have moved the speech to, oh, I don't know, the gym, maybe?!

    Interesting, by the way, that the hue and cry being raised about his speaking at Notre Dame was not raised about his speaking at Georgetown. But then those Jesuits are always a little edgy!

    A large portion of the 'edginess' seen at Notre Dame these days, is likely related to a lack of "having an edge" these days, when the "Fighting Irish" are competing on the 'gridiron' at 'The House That Rockne Built' beneath the 'Touchdown Jesus' mural. ;)

    This after his obeisance to the ruler of the two most {w}holy sites in Islam. Strange isn't it?

    John Ashcroft had the breast of the statue of the goddess of Liberty covered up. Trouble was HE was the boob.

    So you approve the hiding of anything of Christian symbolism and obeisance to relics of Islam.

    The subject is not John Ashcroft's sense of modesty.

    If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.

    He has bowed to the muslim king of Mecca. It was intentional and planned and the muslim world knows he acknowledged subjection to islam. I still believe he is a closet muslim, I have always believed this and continue to believe it. By the end of his term, I have no doubt that all the world will know...I predict that he will announce that he returned to the religion of his father. Perhaps by then, he will have even raised the crescent flag over the WH, the goal of muslims for many years.

    America, you got what you voted for. This is the change you believed in. :tear:

    I believe in separation of religion and government.

    Your defining narrowly the subject is moot. The subject is administration officials covering up things.

    The subject is administration officials covering up Christian religious symbols. Go back and read the OP. Thanks.

    So the obeisance to relics of Islam is not a religious act.

    The most magnificent and most merciful Obama can do no wrong in the eyes of many on this Forum.

    We could easily guess a politically correct pretend to be Christian, like Obama, would make the request.


    Shame on the Catholic leadership at the college for capitulating.
