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.
