Responding to criticism from Native Americans, the University of Notre Dame will cover 12 historic murals in a campus building that depict Christopher Columbus in America.

Created in the 1880s, the murals by Luis Gregori were intended to encourage new immigrants during a period of anti-Catholic sentiment.

But the president of the Catholic institution, the Rev. John Jenkins, said in a letter

Tuesday that the murals will be covered because there’s a “darker side of this story, a side we must acknowledge,” the Associated Press reported.

The president explained that he received criticism that the images – painted on the walls of the university’s Main Building – show Native Americans in stereotypical submissive poses before white European explorers.

Jenkins said the murals could still could be occasionally displayed, AP reported. And a new display of photos of the murals will be created elsewhere with an explanation of their context, the president explained.

“We wish to preserve artistic works originally intended to celebrate immigrant Catholics who were marginalized at the time in society, but do so in a way that avoids unintentionally marginalizing others,” Jenkins wrote.

AP noted that in 2017, a letter signed by more than 300 students, employees and Notre Dame alumni called for the removal of the murals.

The president of the Native American Student Association praised the decision, but AP also quoted a Notre Dame law student, Grant Strobl, who questioned it.

“If we adopt the standard of judging previous generations by current standards, we may reach a point where there are no longer accomplishments to celebrate,” Strobl said.

Inside Higher Education reported a letter from an alumna published in the student newspaper, The Notre Dame Observer, defended Columbus as a “brilliant navigator” whose history has been distorted.

“Even more divisive than the twisted facts employed in anti-Columbus rhetoric, however, is its twisted logic,” the letter said. “It simply doesn’t make sense to argue that Columbus should be held responsible for all the crimes committed by those who came after him.

“If we go on a revisionist crusade, only Mary atop the Dome is safe.”

The president of the Native American Student Association of Notre Dame responded with his own letter, Inside Higher Education said.

“Our ‘attack’ is not political (it’s not even just about Columbus!), but a call for human dignity and progress,” he wrote.

“The most open form of representation that natives get on Notre Dame’s campus is not through a faculty member, administrator or celebration – but through pictures of our people in chains. This needs to be addressed immediately.”

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
