On April 14th, 2009 President Barack Obama gave a speech at Georgetown University touting his new budget proposal before Congress. Barack Obama requested the University to cover a symbol that would be above Barack Obama's head during the speech. The symbol is partly a Cross and the Catholic church's recognition of the initials of Christ. Georgetown University is a Catholic run University which professes their faith in Christ. Conceding to the wishes of a secular opportunist was a vast error in judgment to those that believe in Christ. This is what Christ has to say about such matters. Jesus is instructing his disciples on what it means to be a disciple in these next passages. Maybe the administration of Georgetown University in all their wisdom should have considered the very words that the Son of God used to describe such instances. If you consider yourself to be a Christian then these words apply but if you have no faith in Christ then you should seriously consider it or move along because this isn't about you.
Matthew 10: 21-39
Are not two sparrows sold for a [a]cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.
"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
"So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven.
"But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
"Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
"For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW;
and A MAN'S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD.
"He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
"And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.
"He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.
Barack Obama is attempting to make his administration and the United States Government appear to be a secular organization in complete opposition to the wishes of the Christian majority. The head of Georgetown University that covered up their emblem of faith has shown they are either afraid of this secularist or they have forgotten these words from the faith they profess. In either case they have denied Christ. Only those leaders of Georgetown University and Christ know for sure where their hearts truly lie. They do still have time to ask forgiveness and again accept Christ as their savior and continue in service as better disciples of Christ having learned from their grevious mistake.
