Honoring George Washington, Unwelcoming...Please Keep it Up

Honoring George Washington, Unwelcoming...Please Keep it Up
Christ Church has featured a memorial to George Washington, a founder and attendee of the church, since 1870. Christ Church is now planning on removing the memorial to Washington because "“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..."

And they wonder why some people voted for Trump...please keep it up!

Quote:Church leaders said they debated for a long time, and the Rev. Noelle York-Simmons, the rector, said in an email to The Washington Times that the vote by the vestry was unanimous.

Glad to see you enjoying your field day, Neo.

It is the church's decision, to remove the plaques, is it not?

Are we to infer the plaque is impacting the bottom line?

As adamant as the church can be, stating, "Same-sex marriage may be legal, but we still reserve the right to deny marrying a couple", that if it really didn't want to remove those plaques, it wouldn't.

You know I can just picture Wooters right now, spamming these threads.

Sitting at his computer, giving his brown shirt one last check to ensure it's properly pressed and the imitation Tin Cross is pinned on straight, checking that his fussy little mustache and vain comb-over are still in place, and finally, to muster up the courage to anonymously defame people he doesn't know on the internet, look up at his beloved Austrian guardian before typing out any silly old shite in the hopes that those of us who have working brain cells get angry with him.

The Alexandria VA Christ Church is a fucking Anglican franchise.

Goddam FALSE religion here, people. Nothing to see move along.



Jesus Fucking Christ, no fucking shortage of heretics and their lame ass churches.


Grrrrr.

In Virginia, I am sure there are people who identify more with Ona Judge and less with Washington. Washington may have won our freedom from England but England abolished slavery decades before the U.S.

So a church decided by vote to take a plaque down and that somehow makes the left look evil  Huh

Ain't nothing remotely 'Holy' in the gestation of the Anglican church.

Jesus, what a fucking cluster fuck of fucking cluster fuck of a religion. King Henry shit out a great big old greasy turd of a schism there. Just about as fucking execrable as the goddam Mormons.


Jesus, you goddam Christians don't put ANY fucking effort into most of your fucking schisms, do you ??

Some kind of weird race to the bottom:

"there's no way any one will buy into this heap of malarkey !!"

"you never know!!"

(one hundred years go by)

"Look, we're a mainline denom now!!!, Yea!!! Praise jesus another gullible searching Christian is born every fucking minute"
