- READER ALERT: The Covert Letter published a two-part series April 30 and May 3, 2012, on a brewing controversy within the hallowed halls of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington, D. C. Word had leaked that it was removing the name of Jesus Christ from the Chaplain’s Missal and those who learned of the proposal began circulating the secret to other chapters. It became a matter that would certainly threaten membership; friendships were stretched to their limits as it rose to an emotional peak.
The controversy waned until this morning (Jan. 3, 2012). In case you missed it, FoxnewsReporter Todd Starnes revealed the D.A.R. has indeed removed references to Jesus Christ and God in its literature, including the hymn “America the Beautiful.” Here’s the link:
