Advantages of a Catholic President

When Senator John F. Kennedy was chosen President last November 9th, the thought of a Catholic in the White House sent shivers up the spines of a great number of Americans as the worst calamity that ever happened in the history of the United States. But I feel otherwise about this “new thing” on the national scene – in fact, I maintain that it can be put down as an asset rather than a liability – a definite step forward in the democratic process.

I shall limit myself to two examples of this welcomes advance; one taken from the reversal in our domestic policy; the other from the advantage in our foreign policy.
