ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history and recent news of the anti-Catholic movement in Georgia. In 1916, a wave of anti-Catholic prejudice swept across the State, with the alleged chief agitator in the movement elected as a U.S. Senator in 1919. But in 1928, the people of Georgia registered their desire for a Catholic to be elected as a candidate for the presidency. The author holds the Catholic Laymen's Association of Georgia to be responsible for the turn-around, by answering attacks and misinterpretations, and providing data about Catholicism.
