Plaque honoring George Washington at his church is being removed — the reason why is absurd – TheBlaze

A plaque honoring America’s first president at the church he attended for more than two decades — Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia — is being removed after complaints.

What happened?

Plaques honoring George Washington and Confederate General Robert E. Lee are being removed because they apparently make church visitors feel unwelcome and are too controversial, according to the church’s leaders. Currently, plaques are placed where the two historic men most often sat in the church’s sanctuary.

“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,” the church leaders said.
