Church to Remove Plaque Honoring George Washington

Church to Remove Plaque Honoring George Washington

Leaders at Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, where President George Washington attended, has decided that a plaque honoring him must be removed.

They are saying that the plaque marking where he and his family sat is not acceptable to its worshipers, referencing that Washington was a slaveholder.

Christ Church leaders said:

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome.

“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.'”

In addition, a memorial to Confederate General Robert E. Lee will also come down.
