I’m hardly surprised by anything done by some supposedly “Catholic” colleges, but I have to hand it to Georgetown University for their latest act of irreverence. In order to comply with the wishes of the White House, the officials at Georgetown covered up the “IHS” monogram (a Greek representation of the name of Jesus) when Barack Obama spoke at the school on Tuesday.
I know that official position of the White House is that they wanted a “simple backdrop”, but one would think that if the school had any desire to preserve their Catholic identity, they would have refused. Of course, if they were really a Catholic school they would have never invited Obama in the first place!
It’s becoming very clear that certain “Catholic” Universities are completely “selling out”. By covering up the name of Jesus and inviting a pro-abortion president, Georgetown has made their choice. Someday the administrators will have to answer for what they did. In the meantime, please do what you can to spread the word about this incident, especially when someone tries to tell you that Georgetown is a Catholic college!
