kathleen, you SHOULD have just stopped after the word WRONG

end period finis. sarah palin is wrong

Sarah Palin is wrong about John F. Kennedy, religion and politics

By Kathleen Kennedy Townsend

Sarah Palin has found a new opponent to debate: John F. Kennedy. In her new book, "America by Heart," Palin objects to my uncle's famous 1960 speech to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association, in which he challenged the ministers - and the country - to judge him, a Catholic presidential candidate, by his views rather than his faith. "Contrary to common newspaper usage, I am not the Catholic candidate for president," Kennedy said. "I am the Democratic Party's candidate for president who happens also to be a Catholic." ................

............Palin's argument seems to challenge a great American tradition, enshrined in the Constitution, stipulating that there be no religious test for public office. A careful reading of her book leads me to conclude that Palin wishes for precisely such a test. And she seems to think that she, and those who think like her, are qualified to judge who would pass and who would not. ..............
