Christ Church in Virginia – that George Washington attended says Plaque Honoring him ‘Must Come Down. because it supposedly make some ‘feel unsafe’.
If a plaque commemorating the founder of this country makes you feel unsafe, perhaps you shouldn’t even leave the house.
Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.
Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take 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.
