  • What does IHS stand for? The meaning of the Holy Name of Jesus [Catholic Caucus]

    What does IHS stand for? The meaning of the Holy Name of Jesus   January 3rd, Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus In the Extraordinary Form, the feast of the Holy Name is of the “second class” (making it equal to Sundays throughout the year, complete with the recitation of the Gloria and the Credo), but in the Ordinary Form the memorial of the Holy Name was not even included in the calendar after 1970. Happily, the feast was re-instituted as an optional memorial by Bl. John Paul II – we should think that the Name deserves at...

    Fox ^ | November 5, 2009 | Senator Tom Coburn
    Dont get sick after June is a well known saying in Indian Country. It refers to the month when the federally managed Indian Health Service (IHS) program runs out of money. Its a pretty accurate mantra, according to Kathleen Sebelius, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the program. IHS is a shameful example of how patients suffer when their care is relegated to a government bureaucracy that rations care. IHS, in fact, characterizes the service it provides as a rationed health care system. As many in Congress continue to push for a public option...
  • The Dark Side of Health Care on Native American Reservations

    AP Obama via Finding Dulcinea ^ | June 16th | Cara McDonough
    A Broken Health Care System for Native Americans On paper, the situation sounds good: Based on a 1787 agreement between tribes and the United States government, the U.S. has an obligation to provide American Indians with free health care on reservations. But thats not how it works, reports the Associated Press. Roughly one-third more is spent per capita on health care for felons in federal prison, according to 2005 data referenced by the AP. The systems ineffectiveness has yielded a common refrain on reservations of dont get sick after June, because thats when federal funds run out.

    Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) said he was disturbed by President Barack Obamas request to have the symbolic name for Jesus Christ IHS covered from a pediment that was visible behind him when he spoke at Georgetown Universitys Gaston Hall on April 14. I join many Christians in expressing my outrage at this request, Fleming said after requesting one minute to speak on the House floor. This administration has no problem spending money imprinted with the phrase, In God We Trust, but wont have our president speak with any symbol of Christ in public view, Fleming said. We begin...

    Washington, DC (PNN): Artist Shepherd Fairey's portrait of President Obama -- which was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery and has adorned a wall in the gallery since the beginning of Obama's presidency -- was covered while a portrait of Jesus appeared next to the Obama painting. This stunning news comes hot on the heels of the controversy at Georgetown University, where the school covered up a symbol of Jesus at the request of the White House for an appearance by President Obama. Here is the Obama portrait as it appeared at the Gallery last week before the arrival of...

(White House photo) ( – As First Lady, Laura Bush spoke at Georgetown University in front of the same "IHS"--a symbol for the name of Jesus--that the Jesuit school covered over when President Barack Obama spoke there on Tuesday.   On Dec. 4, 2006, Mrs. Bush spoke on the same Gaston Hall stage that President Obama used for his speech on Tuesday.

    Is this the new politics Barack Obama promised to bring to Washington? His hand-picked DNC Chairman just went on national TV and claimed the Obama administration never requested Georgetown to cover up the IHS monogram representing the name of Christ. Confronted with a article flatly reporting that such a request had indeed been made, Tim Kaine resorted to the hoary dodge of claiming he hadn't seen the story. Adding insult to injury, Kaine even claimed to be ignorant of itself, NewsBusters' sister organization. Kaine made his credulity-busting claims during a Morning Joe appearance today. View video.

    When President Obama gave his economics speech at Georgetown University on Tuesday, several folks noticed something was missing. That "something" was an ancient monogram -- the letters IHS -- that symbolizes the name of Jesus. It was missing from a wooden archway above the dais in Gaston Hall where the president delivered his 45-minute speech. The gold-lettered monogram appeared near a painting of three female figures -- symbolizing morality, faith and patriotism -- and decorative edging along the wall that spelled out the Jesuit motto "Ad majorem Dei gloriam""To the greater glory of God." Georgetown was founded by the Jesuits....

    What occurred at Georgetown University is one of those symbolic moments in history which speaks beyond any single incident. The administration literally covered over the Cross of Christ and the I.H.S., both of which were engraved on the backdrop against which the President spoke on the Gaston Hall stage. The reaction to this censorship of Christian signs at a Catholic University was immediate. The associate Vice President of Communications of Georgetown gave her spin: "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...

The White House asked Georgetown to cover a monogram symbolizing Jesus' name in Gaston Hall, which Obama used for his speech, according to The gold "IHS" monogram inscribed on a pediment in the hall was covered over by a piece of black-painted plywood, and remained covered over the next day, reported.

    When President Barack Obama spoke at Georgetown University on April 14, the White House requested that all religious symbols and signage that might appear as a backdrop to where the president was to speak be covered up. Georgetown acceded to the request and made sure that the symbol IHS, a monogram of the name Jesus Christ, was not in sight. Catholic League president Bill Donohue spoke to this issue today: The cowardice of Georgetown to stand fast on principle tells us more than we need to know about what is going on there, but the bigger story is the audacity...
