There was a day, not too long ago, when any American Protestant church would have been proud to claim George Washington, the first president of the United States and the founder of the American nation, as one of its founders and first members.
That day has passed.
At Christ Church of Alexandria, Virginia, where the motto is “All are welcome, no exceptions,” its leaders decided its most famous member, George Washington, is no longer welcome.
Christ Church announced last October that it will remove a stone plaque that reads “In memory of George Washington” currently displayed on the left side of the altar.
Washington was one of the founding members of Christ Church, which is affiliated with the Episcopal Church USA. He purchased pew No. 5 when the church opened in 1773 and attended it for more than 20 years. Christ Church was as important to Washington that his family donated one of his Bibles to the church after his death.
Christ Church said that the stone plaque on the side of the altar has become controversial because Washington owned slaves.
But feminism is not controversial for them. The Episcopal Church USA has embraced the “Mother Earth” theology, a supposedly “Christian” feminism.
Christ Church, founded by Washington, is today so feminist that it does not have a single male pastor listed on its website. All four ministers in this church are female. One of them, the Rev. Ann Gillespie, is a former Hollywood actress who recently included in her sermon a new version of the Apostle’s Creed.
It starts out, “I believe in God, our Mother Bear, source of all being,” and it refers to Mary, the mother of Jesus, as “the bad-ass womanist liberation theologian, Mary.”
This “creed” was concocted by a lesbian woman named Sarah Moon, who is a member of a United Methodist Church in Toledo, Ohio.
Moon declared in a September 2014 blog post she could no longer bear to recite the Apostle’s Creed, so she rewrote it and came up with her own “Feminist Apostle’s Creed.”
The Episcopal Church USA’s website indicates that liberation theology, social justice, Earth worship and inclusiveness take priority over the traditional Christian missions of trying to live a holy life and sharing the Gospel.
So Christ Church, founded by Washington, is today inclusive to liberation theology, feminism and the gay agenda, but it cannot tolerate Washington over slavery.
Slavery was a universal reality in Washington’s time, and even blacks in Africa, centuries before their first contacts with whites, enslaved other blacks. Even blacks in America enslaved blacks. Slavery was not begun by Washington and other Christians, and it was not ended by blacks or liberation theology adherents. It was ended by William Wilberforce and other Protestant whites.
If feminist ministers at Christ Church can see slavery in Washington, why cannot they see the modern slavery?
Do anti-Washington feminist ministers at Christ Church go naked? Almost no American today uses clothes not made by slave labor.
“‘Everyone loves a bargain but the true cost of that latest wardrobe addition is pitiful wages for Bangladesh’s legion of factory workers,’ writes Simon Parry” in his report “The true cost of your cheap clothes: slave wages for Bangladesh factory workers.” Cheap American clothes today are made by slave workers in Bangladesh and other poor nations.
Yet, you do not see feminists and black activits in America complaining of the plight of those poor modern slaves. You do not see them going naked on boycott. To blame Washington is easier.
Do not anti-Washington feminist ministers at Christ Church use iPhone? Almost no American today goes without iPhone — whose making involves slavery from the beginning to the end.
An essential component of iPhone, Samsung and other smartphones and notebooks is coltan, which is extracted from mines in Congo by slave labor of children as young as 13. Congo in Africa has 80 percent of the world’s coltan, which is sent to factories in China — most notably, the Foxconn factories in Shenzhen. These factories, which produce components for iPhone, are “labor camp,” in which teenage students are forced to work more than double or even triple the overtime limit (36 hours a month under China’s labor laws). Regularly, workers attempt suicide. Even though there are anti-suicide nets to hinder workers from jumping from the roof of the buildings, some have succeeded.
You can see clothed feminists and black activists with their iPhones in their hands complaining of “Washington’s slavery,” but no angry that they are themselves actively supporting modern slavery.
Modern slaves have no time to study.
American history indicates that many white owners allowed their slaves to study. But feminists and blacks in the Protestant church founded by Washington do not care if he was kind or not to their slaves. They want to keep using their iPhones and clothes made by modern slaves, regardless if the slave labor is cruel or not.
Now George Washington is purged from his own church by feminists and liberation theology adherents, in a wave by black activists to remove monuments of white personalities, including Christopher Columbus.
For feminists, liberation theology adherents and black activists, Washington was racist just for being white.
What will come next? Will they remake the U.S. flag — yes, the Old Glory — and the Constitution because they were made by Anglo-Saxon whites and produce a flag and Constitution with the joint participation of blacks, Indians, Chinese, etc.?
Will they remake the U.S. flag and the Constitution because they were made by men and produce a flag and Constitution with the joint participation of homosexuals, etc.?
Will they remake the U.S. flag and the Constitution because they were made by mostly Protestant men and produce a flag and Constitution with the joint participation of Muslims, Hindus, sorcerers, etc.?
When the Protestant church founded by George Washington rejects him but embraces feminism and liberation theology, it is a dark sign of Satanism invading the Protestant foundation of America.
It is time to defend Washington and the Protestant principle of the Bible guiding individuals, families and nations to defeat feminism, liberation theology and the gay agenda. Washington said, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”
In this spirit, I am sure that while witches, occultists and Satanists were celebrating Halloween in October 31, 2017, Washington would be celebrating the landmark 500 years of the Protestant Reformation.
If even Donald Trump chose to celebrate Halloween, instead of the Protestant Reformation, what expect from Christ Church?
The Protestant church founded by Washington needs more than ever to obey the Bible.
America founded by Washington needs more than ever to obey the Bible.
If America denies and forgets her spiritual foundation, God will forget her.
