he Washington National Cathedral will remove Confederate flag images from its stained glass windows that honored Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, it announced in a statement Wednesday.
The cathedral ordered a five-member task force to examine the windows in order to determine their future, the cathedral said in its news release. Though it voted unanimously to remove the Confederate flag images, the task force also decided to host a public discussion on the future of the windows to start July 17.
"The Lee-Jackson windows call the question of race and the legacy of slavery and instead of turning away from that question, the Cathedral has decided to lean into it," the Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, the cathedral's canon theologian and task force member, said in the statement.

Well he!!, the Israelites were slaves so are they going to ban anything to do with Moses too?
Wonder when the last time a presiding minister in the National Cathedral was a person who believed in the divinity of Christ.
The stained glass window was designed to promote the unity of the North and South.
Taking it down says quite the opposite.
Next up they’ll remove the Crucifix because it might hurt someone’s feelings.
This crap has gotten so out of hand. Push, push old guilty liberals and see how far you can take it. I just KNOW that removing those historic glass windows are going to take care of every problem we have in this country.....just like taking the Confederate Flag off of state house grounds (and just about everywhere else) is going to do the same thing. I figger by the time the glass is replaced we’ll all run through fields of lillies hand in hand.....not a care in the world. That will fix it all right.......s
President Wilson is buried a few yards from that window. He’s probably next to go.
Rebel born, Rebel bred.
I’ll be a Rebel until I’m dead.
Responding to the cultural and financial challenges will require a leader with a long tenure a decade, perhaps more and at the age of 66, with two years remaining on my contract, I am not the person for the job ahead. - This man, Rev. Gary Hall should leave now as he lacks the Grace of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church parishioners...those beautiful people know the message of Christ and live by it. His history about the War of Northern Aggression is badly flawed also. He is a political Shepard, lacking the wisdom of a true Shepard of God.
Well, Moses kind of freed the slaves. That really isn’t what Lee and Jackson had in mind wasn’t it?
Commie salute from dem commie nigrassess! I is regusted!
Southern Ghosts says it all.
It will not end until history is changed:
Shame on those who allow this to happen in the name of sensitivity. Those windows should stay!!!!!!!!!
I doubt that some folks will ever find pease until every last drop of White blood is gone from the face of the planet.
I am sick of this nonsense.
It’s Episcopal, right?
How is this action different from the Taliban that alters history by destroying objects? Same thought process, same dangers.
