The Dems Set Religious Tolerance Back 60 Years September 26, 2020

Posted by geoff in News.

The Left’s hysteria over Amy Coney Barrett’s “extreme” Catholicism reminds me of the anti-Catholicism that plagues presidential candidates back in the 50’s and 60’s. Y’all may recall JFK’s troubles with being Catholic:

John Kennedy’s Catholicism, perhaps more than any specific legislative or policy issue, dominated the early days of his campaign.

Many Americans were fearful that a Catholic in the White House would be under the direction of the Vatican, and the Pope, and that the constitutional separation of church and state would be compromised.

The Dems wanted everybody to be more open-minded back then, and they were right – so far as I’m aware, JFK’s Catholicism didn’t influence the execution of his presidential duties.

The Dems have forgotten their roots and are wallowing in the bigotry they previously rejected.

Everything is a political handle. Everything. There’s nothing outside the bounds of politics for them.
