PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION BELOW!
A Prayer To Almighty God
A Petition to President Obama
and Georgetown President John J. DeGioia
We~ the undersigned~ express dismay that The White House protocol office and staff members from Georgetown University deliberately conspired to cover up and hide the name of Jesus Christ~ by shrouding black cloth over the Christian symbol "IHS" (a monogram that represents Jesus’ name)~ during the April 15th speech by President Obama at Georgetown University in Gaston Hall.
Since Georgetown University is a Catholic~ Jesuit~ and faith-based institution~ people expect the name of Jesus Christ to be honored~ not hidden as an embarrassment to the President.
Regardless if President Obama may be personally offended by the name of Jesus~ or if White House communications strategists fear he cannot compete with the "distraction" of standing beneath the written name of Jesus Christ~ we still expect Georgetown University has the right to display Jesus’ name~ and indeed remains bound to the high duty and obligation to worship God through Christ~ rather than show deference to a mere man.
We pray~ therefore~ both President Obama and University President DeGioia will both issue public statements of apology~ and refrain from dishonoring Jesus’ name in the future.
We the undersigned~ pray in Jesus’ name. AMEN.
