USA politically paranoid almost 50 years ago
These words are in the caption below this picture: "Kennedy's Catholicism was...openly derided." "...millions of Protestants, Baptists, Methodists, and other non-Catholics...believed - genuinely believed - that once in office JFK would be taking his marching orders from Rome." Apparently we were paranoid idiots even back then. DUH! (Echos of "Obama's a Muslim" now, almost a good 50 years ago! I mean, I've got MAJOR disappointments in Obama, but let's not do my usual digression now and I'll be even more scary - engage BREVITY instead of verbosity!!!) SIGH!
