Here’s How To Contact Those ‘Church Leaders’ Who Want To Remove Lee Circle From New Orleans

Last week, the Hayride reported the full list of church leaders who signed a letter showing support for Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s plan to remove four Confederacy-related monuments that are currently on the chopping block.

The group of church leaders refer to themselves as the “Clergy for a United City,” and wrote in the letter that the likes of Lee Circle and the PGT Beauregard statue in City Park reflected slavery and Jim Crowe culture.

Among the members were many Episcopal, Baptist and Methodist pastors, while no Catholic priests or anyone remotely-related to the Archdiocese of New Orleans were a part of the letter.

Also, many of the signatures on the letter include clergy members who do not practice in New Orleans, rather other areas like Gretna, Marrero, Kenner, Metairie and Harvey.

From the over 70 clergy members, we have compiled the contact information to a number of these church leaders who have inadvertently involved themselves in a political discussion in the city of New Orleans.
