According to local legend, it was largely through Kennedy influence that when my parish got involved in a nasty internal war back in the early 70's over the priest's Vietnam politics, the Diocese consented to the creation of a second parish church (or perhaps it was a formal splitting up of the parish - you'd have to consult Father M on that). The Kennedy crowd all went over to the new church, which carries the reputation for Cafeteria Catholicism, while the Romans (if I may describe them so) stayed at the old place.
