Catholic University of America has Painting Depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ
“It is just another symptom of the liberalization and secularization of our campus.”
This is a reminder that the left has infiltrated religious institutions just like everywhere else.
The Daily Signal reports:
Catholic University Celebrates Painting of George Floyd as Jesus Christ, Releases Report on Racism
Paintings depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ hang in both The Catholic University of America’s campus ministry office and its law school, The Daily Signal has learned.
Catholic University appeared to shrug off responsibility for the painting Monday, telling The Daily Signal that artist Kelly Latimore’s painting “Mama” depicts “the Virgin Mary supporting the body of the dead Christ”—although the artist has indicated repeatedly that his painting depicts both Floyd and Jesus.
“You can identify Jesus by the marks in the halo,” said Karna Lozoya, vice president for university communications. Lozoya would not further address the matter with The Daily Signal.
“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,” a junior at Catholic University told The Daily Signal in an email. “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,” added the student, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of reprisal from the university administration. “And if we sound the alarm, we will be labeled racists.”

I don’t think Jesus Christ ever committed a home invasion robbery. Am I mistaken?
Violent temple invasion only. 😏
Nor did he resist arrest.
I’m not Roman Catholic, but that’s obscene! Please burn it.
And the University of Minnesota Law School has proudly reported to its alumni that the school has just awarded its first George Floyd Memorial scholarship. The recipient of the scholarship seems to be a pretty decent human being. I wish I could say the same about the person the scholarship is named for.
