  •  the fear of Rome (2+ / 0-)

    Kennedy was the first Roman Catholic with a shot at President, and one of the fears raised by his opponents was that as a Catholic, he would have to do as the Pope said, that Catholics are controlled by the Pope. This fear was pretty much like the attacks on Obama from his critics about the people he associated with, like Reverend Wright. They were baseless fears that were ginned up by opponents of the candidates. Only back in 1960, the country didn't have the news media we have today.
