Obama finds Jesus offensive

Just shaking my head after reading about Georgetown University's compliance to the White House demand that a Jesus monogram be covered up during Obama's economic speech there. Another Obama outrage.
"The White House wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drape for the speech, consistent with what they've done for other policy speeches," she wrote. "Frankly, the pipe and drape wasn't high enough by itself to fully cover the IHS and cross above the GU seal and it seemed most respectful to have them covered so as not to be seen out of context."
Will it surprise anyone when similar demands are made of Notre Dame in advance of the Obamasiah's planned commencement address in May?

A White House advance team does a walkthrough:Let's see. Someone needs to get a really, REEEALLY big tarp and throw it over that large gold dome with that chick on top. Looks out of context. We are going to need all the crucifixes coming off the walls. What is this church doing here?[pause] Bascilica of the Sacred what? Get another tarp. What is this cave thingy with the lighted candles doing here?

I don't know what Grotto means, and I don't care that it is a one–seventh replica of the famed French shrine at Lourdes where the Blessed Virgin appeared to Saint Bernadette. Get another tarp.

What about this?!!


Oh! The chief thinks that's him, so it can stay.

Of course, I learned in the second grade communists ban religion. It gets in the way of total government control.

I hear people are soon going to be able to sue companies for the alleged effects global warming has had on their health... you know like second hand smoke, fatty foods, sodas etc.. All you need is a bogus study from a college, a greedy attorney and a mindless jury and presto another corporation down the drian!

I think people are taking this wrong. They are making this about Obama's religion. What it really is is an insult to the majority of the country that are Christians. This was an incredible insult. I think you summed it up in your last bit aboput him thinking that is him in the mural. This is pure arrogance. He cannot recognize that there is anything other than him that is relevant.

I wonder if he'll make Notre Dame cover up any reference to Catholicism OR Jesus when he goes and gives that speech.
We KNOW ASU would bow to THE ONE and do ANYTHING he says after denying him an honorary degree and then 'changing their minds' (i'd like to have seen THAT WH memo to them, huh?)


Chuck's right...it's awful insult.
PicPic is right, too...and scary: If our companies and country will be paying for alleged effects of global warming, that's every lung cancer patient saying his was caused by pollution. Signing Kyoto, this new legislation PicPic mentions, etc...can American SURVIVE?

OR is this ALL a part of that leftist nirvana future of "America has NO MONEY LEFT, YOU ARE NOW GOING TO HAVE TO DON MAO JACKETS AND GET IN LINE"? it's unbelievable!

I'm not surprised that the BO administration asked for this, but I am surprised that the university complied with the request. On paper, I would've politely declined. In my mind, I would've told him to go take a flying leap...

Sadly, it seems the universities are even farther along the socialist path than I thought.

PIC-PIC: you're absolutely correct. At one point, government was filling in the void left by the decline of religion. Now government is actively shoving religion aside.

This may ultimately be a good thing (a defining moment), where these liberals in academic clothing are finally and fully exposed for who they are. Sadly, it isn't only Notre Dame but many of the old formerly great Catholic Universities such as Loyola, Boston College, etc. Maybe enough true Catholics will finally say Enough! It is sad that it may take a decrease in endowment dollars to get their attention rather than their consciences, but whatever it takes I guess. Ave Maria radio had a guest who pointed out the fallacy of Fr. Jenkins and others who claim to only be offering a free exchange of ideas by having Obama speak. A commencement is not a debate with ideas exchanged but an "address". And in this case Notre Dame is bestowing the ultimate honor to him (or is is "Him"?), by granting an honorary degree!

Pic Pic- I can still see that smoke cloud filtering out of the cracks in your work desk drawer AFTER the office ban. What's the statute of limitations anyway?
Chuck- Barabas Obama.
Z- MAO JACKETS and parachute pants... *sigh* where did my youth go? You're right of course. The leftist nirvana will leave us all looking like Kurt Cobain in the end.
cube- We pay for this too.
anonymous- tsunamis cannot be seen in the open ocean, only when they approach shore and go vertical. I believe what we witnessed with the tea parties last week will continue to gather strength in the open waters of Obama ocean. It will be quite the swell! Christians will be leading the way.
