A conservative think tank wants me to protest CUA’s (Catholic University of America) depiction of George Floyd as the crucified Christ. I will not. Catholic University is right on track. Sure, George Floyd had a long rap sheet, but didn’t Christ come to redeem sinners?
I in no way blame Officer Chauvin for the death, which seemed unintended, but Catholic University is on track in portraying Christ as a co-sufferer in representing the class-less and oppressed minions of the world. Christ, too, was an outcast.
If by some odd chance I ended up with a rap sheet like George Floyd, please God stand up for me too.
