And That's Why America Can't Be Called a Christian Nation

General Colin Powell just gave his much-anticipated endorsement of Obama. In his very eloquently worded speech, he shot down the rumors pervasive through email and innuendo that Obama is a Muslim. But he followed it with, "What if he was?" and told the story of a picture he saw of a grieving mother at the grave of her son in Arlington National Cemetery. The grave is the one pictured here.Knowing American Christians as I do, I anticipate an argument that young Kareem was able to practice his faith thanks to the sacrifice of the Christian founding fathers. To them I offer the words of George Washington:

"If they are good workmen, they may be from Asia, Africa or Europe; they may be Mahometans, Jews, Christians of any sect, or they may be Atheists."
