From The Corner:

On a Bush campaign conference call just now, Massachusetts Democratic state senator Brian Golden makes the point that John Kerry doesn’t want you to know about his God talk: That John Kerry is no JFK (or Al Smith). Kennedy and Smith said, accept me even though I am Catholic. Kennedy told the Southern Baptist Convention in 1960: “But if the time should ever come--and I do not concede any conflict to be remotely possible--when my office would require me to either violate my conscience, or violate the national interest, then I would resign the office, and I hope any other conscientious public servant would do likewise.” That’s not John “Article of Faith” Kerry. Kerry’s is more a perverse anti-Catholic—but more freakishly anti-reason--strategy: Accept me even though I am Catholic because my conscience is separate from my public life.
