The election of a Catholic President was a problem for many Protestant religious leaders. It was felt that a Catholic President would be submissive to the Pope and thus the Pope would control the Presidency, in violation of the Constitution's provision separating church and state. Kennedy was invited to give a speech on the subject in Houston to a meeting of Protestant ministers. This is that speech.
