Gov. Colin Powell has drank the Obama Kool-Aid. I have no words.
However Gov. Powell made a comment which did give me pause to consider my attitude when he said:
"I'm also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said such things as, "Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim." Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, "He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists." This is not the way we should be doing it in America.
He then went on to talk about young soldier Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan who gave his life for this country. I then realized that I had never considered that there are Muslim Americans who love this country and I am ashamed of myself.
Gen. Powell also mentioned that the Republican Party has gone too far to the right. This just confirms there is tolerance for everyone in the United States except followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are much despised.
