Anyone read about the commencement speech given yesterday by the Prez at Georgetown University? If you don't know, Georgetown is affiliated closely with the Catholic church. Apparently the White House requested that IHS (Catholic symbol for the name of Jesus Christ) be covered on the speech pediment for 'consistency' purposes as his other speeches have been in settings covered in black draping and devoid of any symbols or wording. This is just terrible! Covering that in a location clearly linked to Jesus Christ and the school's Catholic church backing is stealing away their beliefs. How could they just give in like that?! I've already written about the coming war over guns, but this war over God is far more troubling and it should be to God-fearing people worldwide. I won't go on about my personal beliefs any more, but here's a good Bible quote about this subject that makes me quiver: "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." Mark 8:38.
Just more personal shame about our "leaders" and those false claims of being patriotic Americans that respect the values that used to be at the core of our nation.
