Podcast: Christ Church Episcopal Removes Washington Plaque
A Series of Conversations with Dr. Jerry Newcombe, co-author of George Washington’s Sacred Fire. Dr. Newcombe serves as the senior producer for D. James Kennedy Ministries and the executive director of Providence Forum. He also hosts a weekly radio program called “Vocal Point” on GraceNetRadio (www.GraceNetRadio.com).
“This particular program addresses the story of how current leadership in the last church of George Washington’s life (where he attended for about 10 years)—Christ Church Episcopal in Alexandria, Virginia—has now voted to remove a marble plaque with Washington’s name on it. (Part of the reasoning was that the plaque was matched with one to another famous former parishioner, Robert E. Lee.) Dr. Peter Lillback joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss this story and other calls to tear down historical statues in our time.” – From GraceNet Radio
