George Washington’s Church To Tear Down Memorial Honoring First President

World Events and the Bible

WEB Notes: I spent a little bit of time researching this and trying to find out what was so offensive in the plaque. Unless I am missing something this is not an attack on the Presidents of the past, but an attack on God…

This article says,

“Currently, simple stone memorials stand on either side of the alter in the church, honoring Washington and Lee. The memorials are engraved with gold lettering that say, “In memory of George Washington.” and “In memory of Robert Edward Lee.”Those plaques are now coming down, church officials have announced.”  

The article above and below both state the memorials in question are on either side of the alter and the article below details it is attached to the wall. Note the images below of the church and the memorials on the back of the wall.

I could not find the quote engraved myself if these are in fact the memorials in question.

Further when we zoom in we can see that the monuments are simply the Ten Commandments and what is commonly called “The Lord’s Prayer“.

If they are taking down these so called memorials because Washington and Lee at etched into it someplace this is an absolutely horrible abomination and an excuse to remove a bit more of God from the church.

George Washington was one of the founding members of Christ Church in Alexandria, buying pew No. 5 when the church first opened in 1773, and attending for more than two decades.

This week the church announced it was pulling down a memorial to its one-time vestryman and the country’s first president, saying he and another famous parishioner, Robert E. Lee, have become too controversial and are chasing away would-be parishioners.

While acknowledging “friction” over the decision, the church’s leadership said the twin memorials, which are attached to the wall on either side of the altar, are relics of another era and have no business in a church that proclaims its motto as “All are welcome — no exceptions.”

“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.

    The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome. Are you serious??? If anything you should feel safe with the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer. What a bunch of Yahoo’s. don’t want to offend anyone, Toooooooooo Bad! suck it up! I feel that if they take it down they will have one way ticket to hell and anyone who agree’s with them, also has a one way ticket!

      This isn’t about being offended. This is Marxism controlling the church. Take it as a marker. A sign saying, “Don’t listen to anything we say from now on”. In 30 years history will be so washed out. The original(as told) ideas on why the country was founded will be a lie.

      • Martist says:

        You’re right about it not being about being offended, but the church has been controlled and created by those who created marxism. It’s all just another side of a means of control on a many-sided dice.

    If they want to remove something so badly, why don’t they remove that menorah! I am sick of this society where it’s a crime to have your own damn opinion on anything! “I’m offended!” “You are?!? Well that is just to f***ing bad!!!” This country’s population has mostly been reduced to spineless, brainless idiots brainwashed by the idiot box and indoctrination centers (schools, churches, colleges, universities, etc.)! What a sick world to live in.

    this is crazy and has gotten out of hand. They are literally erasing history as part of their intent and agenda. I’ll bet if it had anything to do with jews, they would not remove it….they are trying to revise our history through their lies….SMDH in disgust
