Confederate Flag Images Removed from National Cathedral

WASHINGTON (RNS) Cathedral officials decided ‘to just do it and get it done and move on to the next phase,’ a spokesman said.

CHR Comment: Reading this article raised concerns of revisionism for me. I wondered whether it would be best to leave such emblems in place as testimony to past injustices rather than to remove them (e.g., should we bulldoze holocaust sites rather than leave them as museums? I think not.). I was please to read later in the article that signage may be added to explain the changes, which gives opportunity for teaching the history.
