CASSELS WASHINGTON UPI Presidentelect John F Kennedy takes his oath of office next Jan 20 he probably will rest his hand upon a Douay Bible rather than the King James version Its a safe bet that there will be fish on the White House menu every Friday These innovations can hardly be said to strike at the roots of the U S constitutional sys tem Will there be other more basic ways in which Americas first Catholic president will dif fer from his 33 predecessors During the campaign a num ber of Protestant clergymen voiced fears that a Catholic president would take orders from the Pope and would seek in various ways to give his church a preferred position in Ameri can society But many knowledgeable Prot estants and Catholics expect precisely the opposite They are convinced that Kennedy will go out of his way to display his in dependence of ecclesiastical con trol and his devotion to church state separation EVEN BEFORE Kennedy was nominated the Catholic maga zine Commonweal observed that there would be no organization al advantages for the church in having one of its members in the White House It might well be argued that Catholic interests would actu ally be hurt by the election of a Catholic president said Com monweal As president a Cath olic might feel impelled to lean so far backward to show his fairness that he would be less free than a nonCatholic More recently an article in the Portestant Journal Christian Century asserted that Kennedy being immune to any charge of antiCatholicism is b e 11 e r equipped to deal with hierar chical pressures than a Protes tant president might be j Those who hold this view note that it was an Episcopalian president Franklin D Roose velt who sent a special envoy to the Vatican and a Baptist Harry S Truman who proposed sending an ambassador KENNEDY HAS said that he opposes any U S diplomatic relations with the Vatican It is also noted that Vice Pres ident Richard Nixon a Protes tant said during the campaign that he favored letting each state decide for itself whether to include parochial schools in federal education aid Kennedy said use of public funds for church schools is clearly un constitutional When U S Catholic bishops issued a statement last Thanks giving strongly opposing any use of foreign aid funds to support birth control programs in other countries Presbyterian Dwighl D Eisenhower promptly and fully endorsed their stand Kennedy said it would be a mistake for the United States to advocate population limita tion in other countries But he added I would not think it was wise for the United States to re fuse assistance to a country which is pursuing a policy it feels to be in its own best in terests ONE QUESTION which Prot estant clergymen raised during the campaign is whether a Catholic president would be free to participate in interfaith cere monies They cited Canon 1258 of the Catholic Code of Canon Law which says It is illicit for Catholics in any way to assist actively or take part in sacred worship of nonCatholics The Rev Edmond D Benard dean of Catholic Universitys School of Sacred Theology says the canon permits a Catholic public official to attend religious services of other faiths as a passive participant when his attendance is a reasonable part of his public functions Since Kennedy is fully aware of Protestant sensitivities on this subject it seems likely that he will show up at interfaith re ligious ceremonies of a public nature as faithfully as Protes tant officials appear at the an nual Red Mass in Washing AP Photofax PROUD John F Kennedy smiles as he leaves
