Minor Issue?

Jimmy Carter's Southern Baptist roots frequently led reporters to question his stance on moral issues. "How would you feel if you were told that your daughter was having an affair?" a reporter once asked. "Shocked and overwhelmed," Carter replied. "But then, she's only seven years old."

[In 1978, a Baptist minister from Marshall, Texas named Hans Millikan made a 1,600 mile pilgrimage (crawling on his hands and knees) to the White House gates to meet with Carter -- only to be informed that the president was too busy to see him.]
