George Washington's Old Church Removes Plaque Honoring Him
Frontpage Magazine ^ | 10/27/2017 | Daniel Greenfield

Another reminder, as if we needed one, that it's not going to stop with Confederate generals. Or, for that matter, Virginians or slaveowners. Look at the history of the left around the world. And look at where they drew the line and stopped. The answer is nowhere. And so we have this insult, unthinkable in the pre-Obama era where the Dems at least feigned respect for America.

An historic Episcopal parish where George Washington frequently worshiped has decided to remove a memorial plaque honoring the nation’s first president, saying the decision was out of a desire to provide a “welcoming” worship space for all visitors. The church will also remove a similar memorial plague honoring Robert E. Lee, the commander of Confederate Army of Northern Virginia.

Will We the People express outrage on this latest move by Progressives? GEORGE WASHINGTON is the FATHER of our nation.

Tis “church” needs a spanking for its perverted insistence upon honoring hate.

Episcopal? They already rejected God. How about being outraged about that?

well then everyone in the church should remove themselves too because it’s almost a certainty that their ancestors also owned slaves

Oh wait- they have only selective outrage- i forgot

But the good news is the Episcopal Church will eventually vanish from the United States and this place can be torn down or repurposed into something useful.

This is unacceptable and the parishioners should not stand for it.

We must all stand up to the Progressive thugs and call them what they are to their faces: Fascist cry bullies.

Is the church on the register of historical landmarks? then the freaking plaque stays and the parishers can go for forgetting the lesson of Jesus - let those without sin cast the first stone

That is true, however guess how much we learn about our enemies when they pull ridiculous stunts.

At some point they will not know what hit them.

Guess who was right again.

“So will George Washington lose his status? Are we gonna take down statues to George Washington?”

— Donald Trump

It would be funny if a hundred people came to church with t-shirts having the George Washington plaque on one side and Robert E Lee plaque on the other.
