The UK’s Guardian newspaper is promoting a petition to change the design of an insignia on a British honour which depicts the victory of the Archangel St. Michael over Satan as it is reminiscent of the death of convicted criminal George Floyd.

The Order of St. Michael and St. George is an honour bestowed by the reigning monarch of England on those who are being recognised for their services in relation to foreign and Commonwealth affairs.

However, the depiction of St. Michael standing upon a defeated Satan, representing God’s victory over the Devil has triggered the writers at the leftist Guardian as it reminds them of the death of George Floyd.

The convicted home invader who stuck a loaded gun into a pregnant woman’s abdomen as he robbed her house died after being knelt on by a Minneapolis police officer, now charged with murder.

The petition, attributed to a white woman, Tracy Reeve reads:
“The image on the Honorary Knights/Dames Commander (KCMG/DCMG) star is a white skinned angel stood on the head/neck of a black skinned devil.
This is a highly offensive image, it is also reminiscent of the recent murder of George Floyd by the white policeman in the same manner presented here in this medal.

We the undersigned are calling for this medal to completely redesigned in a more appropriate way and for an official apology to be given for the offence it has given!”

Many people on social media have posted replies with the St Michael the Archangel prayer, which is:
“Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.”
