"My lie was this big!"

Joan Walsh, writing at Salon, has an excellent article dealing with Santorum's phony attack on JFK's statement about separation of church and state.
She begins it this way:
"We establish no religion in this country, we command no worship, we mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are, and must remain separate. All are free to believe or not believe, all are free to practice a faith or not, and those who believe are free, and should be free, to speak of and act on their belief."
Santorum went after JFK, a fellow Catholic, but a Democrat, claiming that JFK said people of faith had no role in government. As Ms. Walsh points out, that was a lie on Santorum's part. As I would point out, it's what we've come to expect of Santorum.
Regarding the above quote: that was not JFK speaking, it was none other than Ronald Reagan when he was running for re-election in 1984.
