Separating God and State: The faith of John F. Kennedy by Jim Denison

Separating God and State:
The faith of John F. Kennedy


John F. Kennedy was the second Catholic candidate for president in American history. Facing vociferous opposition from Protestants amid allegations that he would be unduly influenced by the Vatican, Kennedy repeatedly stated: "I amnot the Catholic candidate for President. I am the Democratic Party's candidate for President, who happens also to be a Catholic."

Kennedy continued to claim that religion is personal while politics are public. This segregation allayed the fears of the voting public and constitutes his lasting effect on religion in America. Has this effect been positive or negative? How does it relate to faith and culture today?
