As a former Catholic, now a Protestant, I can remember my years in their parish schools, learning the basic doctrines of the Catholic church.
I can assure the world that the idea of replacing Jesus Christ with a man, in this case George Floyd, the policeman arrested a total of 9 times, mostly on Drugs and theft charges, which would at least be considered abhorrent, rejected.
Floyd, a black man was arrest for attempting to use fake receipts to purchase cigarettes, died on May 25, 2020. His death was attributed to fentanyl intoxication and recent use of methamphetamines (as well as other substances) prior to his death. “white” Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.
A viral video about Floyd’s death, in which Floyd lies handcuffed and pinned to the pavement on his stomach, causing demonstrations and riots that summer across the country.
Before Floyd’s death, some in the social justice movement tried to elevate George to a sort of equal rights hero who died fighting against the injustices identified by the movements. Leftists, like the BLM, lead to riots.

Paintings depicting George Floyd as Jesus hang in both the ministry office on the campus of Catholic University of America and its law school, The Daily Signal has found.
The Catholic University appeared to deny responsibility for the painting on Monday, telling The Daily Signal that artist Kelly Latimore’s painting “Mama” depicts “the Virgin Mary lifting up the body of the dead Christ.” ” – although the artist has repeatedly pointed out that his painting depicts both Floyd and Jesus.
“You can identify Jesus by the signs in the halo,” said Karna Lozoya, vice president of communications at the university. Lozoya will not address the matter further to The Daily Signal.
“Symbol has no place in the Catholic University of America; It is blasphemous and offensive to the Catholic faith, but it is not surprising that it is placed there,” a junior student at Catholic University told The Daily Signal in an email. “It’s just another symptom of the liberalization and secularization on our campus.”
“There are a lot of students, faculty and staff who are concerned about this, but there’s nothing we can do about it,” the student, who asked to remain anonymous, added for fear of retaliation by university management. “And if we sound the alarm, we’ll be labeled racist.”
The university in another sign of joining the SJW movement, on November 19, the Catholic University published Sister Thea Bowman Commission Report, a year-long examination of the university’s culture and practices “on issues of diversity and inclusion”.
Color-blind Christianity, its followers exalt those who do good, and revive those who do evil.
George Floyd was not a representative of the saved Catholic life, so the university is ashamed for not stepping in and removing the paintings.
