Obama Reduex At Georgetown, "IHS Or No IHS"

The covered IHS at Gaston Hall
President Barack Obama will outline a plan for America’s energy security on Wednesday, the White House said. The speech comes as oil markets have been roiled by the crisis in Libya, and Japan is struggling to contain radiation from its earthquake-damaged Fukushima nuclear plant and stabilize the complex’s nuclear reactors and its storage tanks for nuclear waste. Mr. Obama plans to deliver the speech at Georgetown University. On Friday, he will tour a UPS facility in suburban Landover, Md., where he’ll have an opportunity to kick the tires on “clean fleet” vehicles from UPS, AT&T, FedEx, PepsiCo and Verizon. He’s also delivering remarks to employees from those companies.

Flash back to President Obama's last visit (here) 
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.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops stipulated in 2004, that “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”

"I have told you often, and I repeat it today with tears, there are many who are behaving as enemies of the cross of Christ". (Philippians 3:18)
