The first time Westport’s Unitarian Church hung a “Black Lives Matter” banner on Lyons Plains Road, it lasted 10 months.
It was dedicated last Sunday — next to a “Hate Has No Home Here” sign.
This time, it took just 5 days before it too was gone.
It will be be back.
Rev. Dr. John Morehouse posted this message on Facebook:
“Every time the banner is vandalized it fortifies our resolve to replace it and underscores the very need for its existence.”
