U. Notre Dame Covers Christopher Columbus Murals With Tapestries

U. Notre Dame Covers Christopher Columbus Murals With Tapestries

“The tapestries show turtles, rabbits, foxes, rats, bears, eagles and fish, as well as a variety of plant life.”

How long will it be before activists at Notre Dame demand that images of Jesus Christ be covered or removed?

The College Fix reports:

Christopher Columbus murals covered with Native American tapestries at Notre Dame

In addition to Columbus, Queen Isabella, venerated as a Servant of God in the Catholic Church, was covered up with a tapestry depicting a turtle and two rats

The University of Notre Dame administration has now covered the school’s 12 murals depicting the life of Christopher Columbus, which generated protests and petitions from Native American groups on campus.

The 12 tapestries showing Native American symbols and wildlife native to Indiana and are now placed directly over the Columbus murals. The Native American symbols belong to the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi, who invited the religious congregation that founded Notre Dame to today’s campus.

The tapestries show turtles, rabbits, foxes, rats, bears, eagles and fish, as well as a variety of plant life. The Native American borders consist of both “natural and geometric motifs of the Pokagon Band,” according to the university.

In some places, the edges of the original Columbus murals can still be seen. They were commissioned in 1884 by the founder of Notre Dame, Rev. Edward Sorin, and painted by Vatican artist Luigi Gregori. The murals depict Columbus as both a Catholic and American hero, and were meant to inspire patriotism in the immigrant Catholic community that populated Notre Dame.

Who knew that the formerly Catholic institution would dishonor the faith in such a way?
Oh, wait, you mean when they invited Barry obummer?
Or when they sponsored Banned Parenthood as a legit internship (killing babies 101)..

This is just one more nail in the coffin of freedom of expression and the rule of snowflake degrees…

Looking forward to the removal of the Jesus mural, etc… But hey, keep the racist ‘leprechaun’ & the phony adulation for the ‘Sacrament of football’
