The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 416: Maryland Church Reverend Oversteps Boundary

From the March 3, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Annapolis church pulls Confederate ceremony over 'connections with racism.'  (Annapolis, Md.)  (Loss)  Rev. Amy Richter of St. Anne's Episcopal Church denied the James I. Waddell Camp 1608 the right to commemorate the life and grave of Confederate Navy Captain James I. Waddell as they have done on occasions in the past.  (Waddell commanded the famous Confederate raider CSS Shenandoah, the last part of the Confederacy to pull down its flag after the war.)

Does she know how many Episcopalians were  involved with slavery?  Does she know that since Maryland was a slave state and her church was established in 1816, with the present structure being built in 1858.  Perhaps the building should be torn down for its connection with racism, since that was a basic tenet of slavery.

At least, change the name of the church because of its racist ties.
