Warren G. Harding
沃伦∙G∙哈丁

Warren G. Harding served as the twenty-ninth president of the Unites States from 1921 to 1923. Harding officially ended WWI and began the Veterans’ Bureau, which later became the Department of Veterans Affairs. At home, Harding supported racial equality and religious tolerance, going so far as to advocate for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. However, following his death while in office, allegations of vast corruption, including the famous “Teapot Dome” scandal, were made against his administration. President Harding was a Baptist who felt that the American people had strayed too far from God. As was common of the times, anti-Catholicism was an issue in some of his election campaigns, especially the Ohio 1914 Senate race against Irish Catholic Timothy Hogan. Nevertheless, Harding never showed personal religious intolerance during his campaigning, and he went on to appoint Catholic and Jewish leaders to positions within his administration.
沃伦∙G∙哈丁是1921年至1923年间的美国总统。哈丁正式结束了第一次世界大战,并首创了退伍军人办公室,即后来的退役事务署。在国内事务中,哈丁支持种族平等与宗教宽容,甚至支持犹太人在巴勒斯坦建立其家园。不过,当他在任职期间去世之后,人们因大量的腐败行为(包括著名的“茶壶顶”丑闻)对其政府加以指责。哈丁总统是一位浸信会信徒,他认为美国人民已经远离上帝而迷失了。在他的某些选举活动中,反天主教是一个议题,特别是1914年俄亥俄州参议员竞选中对爱尔兰裔天主教徒蒂莫西∙霍根的反对。不过,在其选战之中,哈丁本人并未表现出任何宗教的不宽容,而且在其任职期间,继续给天主教和犹太教的领导人授予职位。
