The left has finally gone too far.

The Catholic University of America, which refers to itself as the pontifical university of the Catholic Church in the United States, now features a painting of George Floyd depicted as Jesus Christ. The painting in its campus ministry office and outside the chapel at its law school imitates Michelangelo’s immortal Pieta except it features the face of Floyd.

Students at the university have noted their discomfort with the painting but noted their concerns of being labeled racists for publicly condemning the piece of art.

The Daily Wire reports:

“The icon has no place at The Catholic University of America; it is blasphemous and an offense to the Catholic faith, but it is not surprising at all that it was put there,” one stated, “It is just another symptom of the liberalization and secularization of our campus.”

“There are many students, faculty, and staff who are concerned about this, but there is nothing we can do,” the student continued,  “And if we sound the alarm, we will be labeled racists.”

Another echoed, “George Floyd is not Jesus Christ. … He is not a saint, nor a martyr, and to, in any way, compare him to the sinless son of Almighty God is to do a damning disservice to the vast majority of Catholics and Catholic theology… It is damning anywhere, but especially at *THE* Catholic University of America, where this painting was purchased, unveiled, and hung up without input from student leaders.”

A third student said, “Nobody should be portrayed as Jesus except” Jesus. “It highly disappoints me that someone else is being depicted as Jesus Christ in the Pietà to begin with, [and] being right at the doors of a chapel makes matters worse. … Replace it with a photo of Floyd, I can care less, but to put up something clearly blasphemous defeats the mission of the university.”

Will the university listen to its students and take down the so-called “art” or bow to liberal organizations like Black Lives Matter?

Parents : Check out a prospective college BEFORE sending your kids there. Too many, private and public, are seedbeds for Communism (aka CRT, “woke,” etc) If parents and ALUMNI shut their wallets, most of this crap would decrease!

Even if mortals could know such unknowable things, one thing is knowable and was known. Floyd was not worthy of such iconic worship. This thing is simply another gesture intended to make the artist feel good — regardless of how it makes others feel. It’s certainly not a Godly effort.

Get off your self-righteous “virtue-signaling” jackass. Find an atheistic blog and post there where your comments will be welcome.

That University has been corrupt for years. They hide under the name “Catholic” just like Norte Dame dies.

Appears to be a Freudian Slip about good ol’ N.D. Actually, “dies” is pretty appropriate when “does” was intended. The typo “Norte” would then translate from Spanish and Portuguese as “North” Lady which I would construe as “Shady Lady”.

What did you expect, when Bergoglio happily presided over adoration of “the pachamama” at the most sacred places of the Vatican?

Subsequently, the painting was stolen from the law school. It was then replaced with the smaller version from the ministry office.

Just another confirmed use to show who is in power at that “Church???).If the black people can force this into a church then they are probably the ones pushing Biden’s buttons.

Who the HELL is this Floyd guy? Did he win a Pultizer Prize, discover a cure for any major diseases, donate to any good causes around the world to help those in need. Was he canonized a Saint that I wasn’t aware of? Now, if anyone’s picture should be hanging in this Catholic University it should be the Godly & Saintly “Mother Theresa”. She gave up her whole life & wealth to live in poverty & care for the very poor people that were full of diseases, no food, no clean water, clothes of rags. no decent places to live. NOW WHO SHOULD BE HANGING IN THE UNIVERSITY? THE SAINT OR THE DEVIL?? I know this might be a difficult question for some. Isn’t it obvious? There’s no debate over this question at all. Unless you suffer from a brain injury or are in a coma. DUH!! AMERICA IS DYING A SLOW DEATH!! 🥰🌈🙏🙏
