On September 12, 1960, John F. Kennedy addressed the Greater Houston Ministerial Association in Houston, Texas. At the time, many Protestants were suspicious of a possible Kennedy presidency. They were nervous about Kennedy’s Catholicism.
To answer this suspicion, and ease the nervousness of both Protestant leaders and voters, Kennedy spoke directly to the issue in clear terms.
Kennedy said, “I am not the Catholic candidate for President. I am the Democratic Party's candidate for President who happens also to be a Catholic.” Throughout his speech to the ministers, he argued that he should not be judged for his personal faith, but for his vision for America, and his record of service. As you know, John F. Kennedy was elected President.

Caped crusaders are out and proud this year at Comic-Con International. Even Superman and Batman at the Prism Comics booth wear snug Underoos, capes and chef’s aprons — but not much else — as they entertain passersby. T-shirts featuring “Glamazonia: The Uncanny Super-Tranny,” “Wuvable Oaf,” a hairy-chested wrestler-type in pink shorts. and other less-famous characters line the walls of Prism’s booth — the unofficial hub of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community at this week’s convention.
“It feels revolutionary,” says Scott Covert, decked out as Batman’s sidekick, Robin, at one of the convention’s many panels about gay culture and the comic book world. He flips the lip of his cape as he adds, “There’s more tolerance this year.”
