    with the Moral Majority deification of Ronnie Reagan.  But I don't have sufficient knowledge of the popular movements of Christianity and politics to know the whole story in this country.  We tend to know our own times far better than earlier generations.  But I think you've hit it that there is probably an ebb and flow of this kind of development.

    Overall, we probably first got into really big trouble when Emperor Constantine adopted the faith.  Around that era the military arm of that state went from restricting Christians from becoming soldiers to requiring soldiers to "convert" to Christianity.  It forever altered the young sect.  The peace church was infiltrated and corrupted.

    Kennedy got asked that mostly because of the fairly virulent anti-Catholic sentiment in the country.  And although he diluted it in his short term, it is still very much alive.

    Again, thanks for the great diary.
