Grapes and Hawaiian dips Catholics Politics Though spokesmen for the major political parties some- times deny it, there is considerable and oRen-quiet maneu- vering to win the Catholic vote. Catholics are by far the most numerous single religious group, numbering more thml 45,000,000. Of course, to imply Catholics vote ill a bloc is flagrant oversimplification. Often they do not. Yet they k, nd to be motivated on certain sensitive issues, or at least mazly of them do. The politicians know this. Thus when John Kennedy ran in 1960 Catholics were told (andmany believed) those who were genuinely concerned at the thought of a Catholic in the WhiU_, tlouse were bigots.

He is right; the Constitution does forbid it. John Kennedy agreed on the point. The religious issue is, then, still being played for votes. guests and presented them to Moody and Mrs. WilsonKen- were served.
