Georgetown U. at the Resurrection


CNS News has an article about Georgetown covering up the "IHS" on the request of the White House. Certainly wouldn't want people confused about who the real Messiah is, I suppose.

What's not surprising is that the White House would request it. What is surprising, or should be, is that Georgetown complied. Then again, given their track record, maybe it's not so surprising.

Some people have argued that Obama does not want to use religion to further a political ideology. However, Obama did
evoke the Sermon on the Mount, at this Georgetown appearance, to further his economic agenda. Although Obama failed to mention Jesus Christ by name for the Sermon on the Mount.

“There is a parable at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that tells a story of two men…‘the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house…it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock,’” Obama said.

“We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand,” he added. “We must build our house upon a rock.”

The last statement is particularly ironic since building your house upon a ‘ROCK‘ means to build your house with Christ as the foundation. Obama decided to blot out the real foundation from the timeless parable.

That's how Obama fools the masses - twisting and using Scripture in a secular sense to reel in the "religious" dupes along with appealing to the non-religious.

Well, since GT isn't a Catholic University, of course it complied.

Why would he ask that this be done? Seriously. I kinda makes you wonder how he would react to holy water or a crucifix.

@ anonymous:

good point! quick! get a priest to run to the white house, bless the property, and put crucifixes in every room of the property. we'll see how long the obamas, as well as the ACLU and other far-left last in the white house after this!!

Is there time to use the Blessed Salt at ND?

I've said it else where, think about this, only the "devil" will not stand in front of the word IHS (Jesus' name) while giving a speech. It's like when a Priest does exorcism, the devil gets squirmy when Jesus' name is being rebuke or crucifix is shown.

My goodness. I know many news reporters have said that Obama is the "messiah" and all that sort of thing. Now he uses Scripture to further his political agendas.

Georgetown University has the gall to cover up the IHS lettering. So much for being Catholic. You can compare this university to the disciples that ran away in the Agony in the Garden. *shakes head*

@ our family:

thats fascinating. it makes sense, but it didnt occur to me until you wrote it. should the white house undergo an exorcism as well?
