President Says "Jump," Georgetown Asks "How High?"

Georgetown University, according to the early 80s phenomenon, the Preppy Handbook, "used to be Catholic." No kidding:
Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram “IHS”--symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because 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.
I wonder what the University of Notre Dame will have to cover up when the president gives the commencement address. On the other hand, maybe they've already removed all that yucky religious stuff.

(Thanks to Banished Child of Eve.)

UPDATE: Notre Dame will need a pretty large curtain to cover up Touchdown Jesus.
