The Irish Central website reports today (September 10, 2011) that Jackie Kennedy was suspicious of Catholics, and believed many of them had persecution complexes.
She reveals her dislike of Catholics in a newly published book -- to be released to the public next week -- titled "Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy," which has interviews she gave former Kennedy aide and historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. soon after her husband was assassinated on November 22, 1963.
In the book, Jackie comments in one interview on the suspicious nature of her mother-in-law Rose Kennedy -- a devout Catholic -- and says she always demanded to know if someone was Catholic.
"There seems to be about all these Irish -- they always seem to have a sort of persecution thing about them, don't they?" Jackie asks.
