AS WE TURN TO THIS SUBJECT OF THE UNCLEAN FROGS OF REVELATION, I think it important that we consider our relationship to the chain of events through which we have been passing. As we have said — America responds with great waves of emotion to great historic events that present some of the Majesty of a great nation. In the inauguration of a President they were caught with the swelling emotion of the pageantry of America and its history, and they all wished to believe as well as possible in the President whose forthright address was challenging, although there were facets of it which were not acceptable. Within all of the events of this hour, I can tell you that behind the scenes moved forces, hard sometimes to analyse, unless one is aware of all the facts that are involved in the scene.

There is no doubt that to Protestants everywhere, this election, and the speed with which it swept across the nation in a great rising force of a minority movement and its organizations — to behind a candidate who little over a year or so ago was not known to many people through out the nation. And even in Washington D.C. he was not known to well, for if you asked where is Senator Kennedy from they couldn’t tell you whether from Indiana or Ohio, or just where. The fact was that to the average government worker, he was just another Congressman, or Senator from somewhere. And to those who watched the political life of the nation they knew that he came from a powerful, wealthy Irish Catholic family from the Boston, Mass., area. Those who knew more about it knew that he was connected with the Fitzgerald’s, the Curleys and all the political strength that once came out of Boston.

Now, we are well aware that the election has come and gone but as we look out of this situation, there are some things which we cannot forget. It is rather generally believed by all those who are observing the situation in Washington, that the election was never decided on the amount of votes cast. They do not believe that Kennedy actually won that election. I found that most everyone believed that the election had been won as to the matter of numbers in most of deciding states by Mr. Nixon. One of the things I would like to recall to your mind, even though you say it is too late, it has no part now in this picture, just consider it. I consider it most significant, and I think it should be looked out.
