    This is about as silly as when Ascroft covered the breasts of the statute.

    Had they not covered it up, conservatives would have bitched when they saw a picture of "The Messiah" with "IHS" over his head

    Cowards. They should have left IHS as is and if Obama had a problem with it then he could bugger off. WTF, so a Catholic college has to cow-tow to Obama? Please spare me the separation of church and state. It's a Catholic college; Obama should have been covered in a black triangle.

    This instance is not separation and it sure ain't freedom. It is more like political posturing for the the anti-christ in a Christian setting. And you wonder why they call you "moron".

    Whoops! You're right manu. This is a Catholic institution run by Jesuits, and not a public one. The White House went too far in requesting that a religious institution cover up its symbols and Georegetown Univ. should've denied the request.

    It doesn't matter if the POTUS is Christian or not, but this is going too far. Maybe there were pragmatic political reasons for it, but if the POTUS or any US official is going to make a public appearance in a religious institution, then they have to deal with the fact that it is a religious institution and not a secular one.
