Georgetown Says It Covered Over Name of Jesus to Comply With White House Request
CNS NEWS.com ^ | Wednesday, April 15, 2009 | By Edwin Mora

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 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."

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."

From the article:
“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.
(emphasis mine)
What other signs and symbols were covered besides the IHS thing? Anyone know?

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.

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.

Obama didn’t 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?

Who writes this stuff for CBS—a 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.

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.

We don’t know yet - does the president routinely ask for for clean stage with no symbols?

Then Georgetown, a Catholic university, should have said no, since it has none to offer. Every building has signs of the cross.

IHS is abbreviation of Latin for In hoc signe, meaning "in this sign" (the cross) will you conquer and prevail.

Not a symbol for the name of Jesus, but a symbol pertaining to the cross of Jesus.

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.
