The Christ Church located in Alexandria Virginia will be taking down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.
“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.
“Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.”
“Many in our congregation feel a strong need for the church to stand clearly on the side of ‘all are welcome- no exceptions,'” they concluded.
President Trump has said time and time again that the censoring of Confederate generals and the removal of their monuments would only lead to the removal of our founding fathers monuments and this proves once again that he was in fact right!. This must end now, what is next?!.
