against Obama and Democrats
I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute, where no Catholic prelate would tell the president (should he be Catholic) how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote [Emphasis supplied] -- JFKTo the right is the Sunday mass leaflet distributed at a Catholic parish this past Sunday. It is signed by the parish priest and urges prayer and fasting until the November elections, at which time the instruction seems clear—vote against President Obama and the Democrats.
