Peace Train

I got an email today from a guy who wants me to believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim and because of that he’s not fit to lead the United States of America. I don’t care if he’s a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian, a Buddhist, or an atheist. America is not a theocracy. I love this song by Yusuf Islam. Yusuf is a convert to his faith. He’s not an American, but he’s clearly my brother in the quest for peace.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

–U.S. Constitution.
