Tag Archives: Houston Ministers Speech 1960

Tomorrow should be victorious for Rick Santorum again…

If Rick wins Michigan tomorrow, which he probably will, then this is bad news for Romney.

Thing is, people seem to be upset over Rick’s thoughts on JFK’s Houston Ministers speech in 1960. After all this, it got me to read the JFK Houston Ministers speech and do some reading about the, “Separation of Church and State”, which Rick is talking about. Rick doesn’t agree with the “Separation of Church and State”, Kennedy is in favor of it. While the “Separation of Church and State” is no where in the Constitution, but the 1st Amendment says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

All Rick is saying that he wants to bring people of “faith” and “non-faith” together. Kennedy wanted to separate them. That’s all Rick is trying to say I believe.

I don’t get into this whole religion thing ’cause religion is not part of my life anymore, but I get what he was saying. What Rick said may have been kind of harsh, but he has the right to be honest about it.

The “vomit” part, he just wanted to bring it to people’s attention. I think he did a good job getting people to talk about JFK’s speech, no matter what people thought of his opinion about it.

This is why I like Rick. He’s not afraid to say things, even though it’ll piss a lot of people off. That’s makes him confident. I like those kind of people that are open minded and honest, no matter the consequences.

Looking forward to the primary results tomorrow night.
