(CNSNews.com) - Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“IHSĂ˘â‚¬Âť--symbolizing the name of Jesus ChristĂ˘â‚¬â€ťbecause it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“IHSĂ˘â‚¬Âť monogram that had previously adorned the stage at GeorgetownĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Gaston Hall was still covered up--when the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by CNSNews.com.
