We Went to the Church That Will Remove the Washington and Lee Plaques. Here?s What We

On 11.01.17 09:49 AM posted by Jarrett Stepman

A historic church in Alexandria, Virginia, stepped into the national debate about history and statues when it made the controversial decision to remove plaques to George Washington and Robert E. Lee.

Christ Church was built in 1773 and both Washington and Lee had been frequent attendees, but church leaders announced that they felt the plaques would drive away parishioners.

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” the church leaders said, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “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.”

Daily Signal contributor Jarrett Stepman and The Heritage Foundation’s social media manager, Lyndsey Fifield, went to the church to talk about the controversy.
