The monogram "IHS" — which comes from the Greek for Jesus — was covered with a triangle of black-painted plywood. Catholic League president Bill Donohue says: "The cowardice of Georgetown to stand fast on principle tells us more than we need to know... but the bigger story is the audacity of the Obama administration to ask a religious school to neuter itself before the president speaks there."
Hasn't Obama claimed to be a Christian? It's something the whole world apparently knows about him. I don't think it matters where you speak, you shouldn't have to cover up anything...don't like it, don't speak there.

I agree with anon. But to add...this is OBVIOUSLY something people are looking to blow out of proportion and freak out over.

I agree with KellyP77. He is going to their school which he is aware a religious school. Why should they do anything? He may be president,but I am regretting it more and more. His true colors are showing. I guess we will see the truth soon enough. If I owned the school I would not invite him after that.
