I was surprised to see the phrase "Nat'l Church". I thought to myself, "what the heck is the 'Nat'l Church'"? After a little poking around, I see that it is the "Washington National Cathedral" which bills itself as the "Spiritual Home for the Nation". Meh, I don't think so, but I guess it's kind of a harmless gimmick of a phrase.

Anyway, it's private church property so they can do what they want but it is good to see that they have reconsidered these gifts from the United Daughters of the Confederacy. They should do it because of how it would better reflect the values of the Catholic Church, not because they are acting as a symbol of the conscience of the nation - because they aren't.

Actually the Washington National Cathedral belongs to the Episcopal Church, not the Catholics. They were given a charter by Congress back in 1893 to build the cathedral.

Oops, sorry about that. It doesn't matter what denomination it is, though, it isn't a symbol of the conscience of the nation. They should remove the windows because doing so reflects the values of the Episcopal Church, period, charter by Congress or not.

...it isn't a symbol of the conscience of the nation.

...And yet, oddly, sometimes it mirrors our collective unconscious for the state of the union.

I was hoping they would let the descendants of slaves smash them out with stones but that is not the case.

$tevie, Thanks for sharing. That was a WELL written letter by the Bishop. And clearly stated that this was not a 'knee jerk reaction' but a considered decision taken after much thought (and prayer).

If only politicians and activists would recall this truism:

"Act in haste, repent at leisure".

There shouldn't be a bookstore, then.

Of course, it's probably stocked with 50,000 copies of 50 Shades of Grey and The Shart of the Deal.


(sorry about the "typo")

Also take note of the deconsecration service text linked at the bottom of the notice.
