The President at Georgetown: Did this Catholic University Deny the Faith? - Catholic Online

"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 Gaston Hall stage… 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… 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.'"

The President at Georgetown: Did this Catholic University Deny the Faith? - Catholic Online: Cirba: It seems to me that anyone who would order the coveringof a cross and IHS at a Catholic university, or anyone who defends it such as their "Associate Vice President of Communications" should be fired. Of course that will never happen, but readers can go to the Georgetown University web site,

They should not be using any flags, pipe and drape for the speech. Just use what is already there the Cross of Christ and the “I.H.S.”
