Has anyone read "The Real George Washington" ?

DON'T DO IT , unless you have lots of time to waste . There's also a Real Thomas Jefferson and a few other Reals . Don't do those either . There are no reviews on the back cover . My brother told me of proof that George Washington was a devout Christian by referring to Washington's words at his first innauguration,April 30,1789 .

" Then the oath , formally finished , Washington reverently added the words, 'So help me God ' , and bowed and kissed the Bible " . Pages 520-521 .

The problem with this quote is that there is no reference whatsoever next to the sentence .

I looked up the quote on wikipedia ( not my favorite choice ) and found the words " debatable " and " no evidence " to support this allegation .

My sources say George Washington was probably a deist who respected religion , but certainly not what you would call an openly religious person.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
