The "Catholic" University of America features on campus two images depicting George Floyd - a petty crook who died from a drug overdose while being arrested by police - as "Jesus Christ" whom Our Lady is holding in her hands.
The representations are located in the Law School and the Campus Ministry office. The Episcopal artist Kelly Latimore has said repeatedly that his painting depicts "both" Floyd and Jesus.
A junior at CUA told DailySignal.com (November 22), that "the icon has no place at The Catholic University of America; it is blasphemous and an offence to the Catholic faith, but it is not surprising at all that it was put there.”
"Mama" by Kelly Latimore was stolen from the law school, and we replaced it with a smaller print that was hanging in Campus Ministry. We hope to continue to build on campus a culture that engages in thoughtful dialogue and debate, not the sort of bully tactics epitomized by this theft.
