When Catholicism Was the Target

an interesting article - and perspective - on Catholicism and politics offered by a law professor at Notre Dame, touching on the Pope's upcoming visit and the legacy of John F. Kennedy in the context of today's political arena.

He writes:

"Thankfully, we live in a time when no one feels the need to take up arms to protect Cincinnati from Benedict's invading armies. We should always be on guard, though, against the temptation to demonize, dismiss, or distort the beliefs and aspirations of those whose faith seems foreign to us."
