Al Smith, the first Catholic nominated for the presidency by a major party, faced vicious anti-Catholic prejudice during his 1928 run against Herbert Hoover. The opposition claimed that under a Catholic president, Protestant marriages would be annulled, bibles would be banned and the Pope would have a special office in the White House. The Lincoln Tunnel, then under construction, was rumored to be a secret passage to bring him from Rome to Washington.

And one very small one.

The Reluctant Bride — Leigh Greenwood

P.S. The price-sticker residue by her mouth means we could have taken this in a much dirtier direction, but that would have been misleading.

Patriotic songster Lee Greenwood hides his romance novel writing gig in plain sight. God Bless the USA, indeed.

I go speak at my high school, and this is the thanks I get?

I like that they used the word “porn” and not “adult content” or even “pornography.”
