Posted on 04/15/2009 6:22:32 PM PDT by Cindy
SNIPPET: "Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram IHS--symbolizing the name of Jesus Christbecause 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."
SNIPPET: "Roman Catholics traditionally use IHS as an abbreviation for Jesus name."
SNIPPET: "Although the monogram was removed from the wooden pediment on the Gaston Hall stage where it would have been directly above and behind President Obama as he spoke, the letters IHS are posted elsewhere around the hall approximately 26 times on shields representing different parts of the United States and the world."

Surprized Our “Christian”(alleged) TOTUS didn’t Demand a Big Banner with Mohammed’s Name emblazoned on the Stage over His Head During His Teleprompter Recital at Georgetown:-(
“In coordinating the logistical arrangements for yesterday’s event, Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage,” Julie Green Bataille, associate vice president for communications at Georgetown, told CNSNews.com.What other signs and symbols were covered besides the IHS thing? Anyone know?
More like 666 will do him just fine.
How about the 85% of the U.S. Jewish Population that Voted for ZERO HUSSEIN! Didn’t they Learn anything during WWII!
“Does Notre Dame know about this?”
It won’t be easy to cover up “Touchdown Jesus”.
Fully as stupid and possibly even more offensive than the AG covering up a statue’s breasts.
Am I getting desensitized?
This kind of stuff doesn’t even shock me at all any more.
ZERO HUSSEIN SURE CAN’T HOLD A CHRISTIAN PRAYER To PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH:-)
Sorry, I cannot agree.
nobama is a narcissistic control freak. He knew what was going on. He probably wished he could substitute some Muslim symbols for the Christian ones.
After the 9/11 attacks, George Bush made a point of visiting a mosque. He didn’t ask for the removal of anything. That shows you the difference between a man of authenticity and a self-absorbed phony like Mr. Obama.
AND RECTING THE MUSLIM EVENING PRAYER PRECISELY AN ACCURATELY DURING A “TIME MAGAZINE” INTERVIEW!! TOUTING HOW BRILLIANT ZERO WAS/IS!
I’m still waiting for someone to explain why he’s not..........
Mat 10:32 Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my FATHER in heaven.
Mat 10:33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my FATHER in heaven.
Uh Oh ...0bama
Isn’t Georgetown a Catholic school like Notre Dame, St. Johns and Boston college who are either fawning over Obama or Billy Ayers?
I am really getting sick of the liberal American Catholic Church. They are pro-ACORN, LULAC, La Raza, MALDEF etc. The Pope needs to smack this down now.
I gas mass murder of babies is okay now in the liberal American Catholic Church.
worse, they have ignored the entire last 60 years. It never ceases to amaze me how anyone who supports Isreal could have voted democrat, ever.
FR has been all over this:
The zero wanted it changed to BHO.
Obama didnt want to be photographed with the symbol for Christ showing in the picture. We know why. But what is Georgetown’s excuse?
And even if Obama were an overt muslim instead of a closet case, what is Georgetown’s excuse for ever, ever covering a symbol of Jesus?
Somebody please throw a shoe at this poseur.
Who writes this stuff for CBSa three-year-old? IHS stands for In Hoc Signum, by or in this sign, the sign being the cross, or the crossed letters of Chi (X), Rho (our P), the first two Greek letters of the word Christ.”
IHS are the first three letters of Jesus in Greek. It’s on Eastern Icons, which use Greek. Iota Eta Sigma.
WHY? This sounds VERY weird.
No, "the White House" will ask them to display it on armbands.
The motto of the Jesuit order is AMDG: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam, usually translated “To the greater glory of God.”
Which God is that, I wonder, at Georgetown? The Christian God? Allah? Or maybe some kind of interchangeable god?
The article concludes that Obama never mentioned the name of Jesus in his speech, but he did quote from the Sermon on the Mount:
We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand, he added. We must build our house upon a rock.
Now, what do we suppose Obama meant by “rock”? The usual understanding is that the rock Jesus refers to is Himself, the Son of God. But the way Obama uses it, either he means the Federal Government or he means none other than himself, as the head of that government.
Hmm. Talk about messiah complexes. And the Jesuits of Georgetown are aiding and abetting Obama’s appropriation and misuse of the Bible.
Then Georgetown, a Catholic university, should have said no, since it has none to offer. Every building has signs of the cross.
If it was a muslim symbol would he asked to cover it up??
Not in this case.
SHAME on Georgetown University!
Well, I guess I can understand why a Kenyan-born Muslim like Dumbo might not want...
No, actually I can’t undertsand this...

Thanks....I needed a good laugh! good one!
It's the 12th Imam oscumbo doesn't want offended.
Not a symbol for the name of Jesus, but a symbol pertaining to the cross of Jesus.
Sounds like it.
These are interesting times.
Better be careful what you say....Muzzies have been destroying Christian statues, etc in Europe/Asia for years....wouldn’t be surprised if they start here....
He will deeply regret . . . probably eternally . . . ever having the thought; insisting on the action.
Hideous to the max.
Decisions and actions from hell bear serious consequences directly from God Almighty—without any human agency between.
“Is that like holding up a cross in front of Dracula or something?”
“Couldnt they have just changed it to IOS?”
What about “IOU” or my favorite, “POC” (politically correct version).
There seems to be disagreement, but I was taught that Constantine saw the cross in the sky and heard the words, “In this sign shall you conquer”
He was on the battlefield and he converted to Christianity and the next day won his war to take over the Roman Empire.
I've seen it all of my life but never gave it much thought.
