I don't disagree with this. My hesitation comes in labelling God as 
something other than omnipotent, even in saying that God isn't 
omnipotent "in the sense the [Roman Catholics] believed". The fact that 
other religions don't understand the meaning of words like "omnipotent" 
does not negate the fact that God is truly all-powerful, far, far beyond 
any remote possibility that we have to imagine it. No, God can't do 
undoable things, like save people in their sins, or make a thing 
simultaneously exist and not exist. But these things are ultimately 
tautologically false; that is, they defy their own definition. I would 
be surprised if any man or woman can name something that God cannot do, 
whether because of the limitations of "natural law" or anything else, 
that doesn't fall into this class of false-by-definition.
