Was Our First President a Deathbed Convert to the True Faith?

Spokane Orations does not think so, quoting a "thoughtful and thorough debunking of the idea" from "a Catholic activist website" — No, George Washington did not convert to Catholicism, but he defended the liberty of Catholics in America. This blogger is willing to entertain the idea, which I had never before heard, because I find it entertaining.

I wish it were true, but the evidence is against it!

It is still inspiring, though, how Washington stood up to bigots in Revolutionary America to defend the rights of Catholics to be part of the American experiment in ordered liberty.

Thanks for the link, too! Much appreciated.
