Jesus! You're right, the site containing the transcript of JFK's speech also contains a part in wich sympathy for Scientology is expressed. But advertising for Scientology wasn't my intention, when I made this thread. I just searched a site, were the Transcript of JFK's speech could be found.
I found that transcript now on another site, so I'll replace the old link to that suspicious site with the link to a - so I hope - less controversial site.
Thanks to you for bringing it to my attention!
