National Cathedral windows are stirring controversy

From The Post-Gazette-

Among the memorials inside the Washington National Cathedral is a dazzling stained-glass window near the tomb of Woodrow Wilson, the only U.S. president buried in the capital’s prominent Gothic structure.

While millions of visitors have passed by President Wilson’s crypt and walked across the bronze presidential seal laid into the floor in front of it, many of them probably never noticed two finely detailed Confederate flags in the “War and Peace” windows that are part of the Woodrow Wilson Bay.

We might have missed them, too, if we hadn’t visited the cathedral several months after Dylann Roof confessed to shooting and killing nine African-Americans in a Charleston, S.C., church.
