Catholic University Features Paintings of George Floyd as Jesus Christ

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?

catholic university of America…..Sorry but no way shape or form is that statement correct. May be the little man in white should weigh in on this, unless it agrees with him and his actions. Wonder what they teach at this so called university? Bet there are some pictures/paintings of lucifer on the grounds also. May be the parents will wake up and send there children to a proper university not pushing this type of crap.

I used to teach at a Jesuit college. Sadly, a third of the faculty/staff were atheistic and clearly socialist leaning. They in no way reflected Gospel teachings yet hid behind a Catholic name. Remember, satan is always trying to represent himself as God. Don’t be deceived!

To portrait a violent drug addict POS as Jesus is to crap all over the religion and make it a joke. Some are using racism to do the unthinkable because people feel afraid to voice their opinions and unjustly labeled racist. Floyd was the farthest you could get from Jesus. Get that out of there.

It is not Catholic any more. They are ruled by a group of pedophiles, sodomites who are involved with the evil demeanor. Parents be aware of your children attending such a place. May God Have Mercy on them!

i consider catholicism as an institution that teaches to beg. either you give or their vultures will put you on the Clinton clan’s death list. this fault religion group decimated the natives in South and North Americas in the name of their fault religion. ever heard of the criminal and executioner group the INQUISITOR? the dark age is now among us. wouldn’t surprise me the slow Pope is the antichrist, the smooth talker bow to Satan at any means.

Black Lives Matter is a stain that is spreading it’s toxic disease over the entire Liberal movement. The Black Marxist movement must be exposed for the destruction it is before it destroys black Americans.

I would suggest that someone on the board, faculty or monetary donor controlled by
Soros/Obama is responsible for this offensive act of portraying this vile criminal as
our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Catholicism is nothing more than a devil den weaponized by Satan. who in god’s name would herald a criminal and overdosed creature as the son of god. Jesus Christ is a perfect Son of God, not this dead slime. it is so disrespectful to God and the good black folks. tear that devilish image off the site.
