Religion, politics not unwelcome at Dionne’s dinner table

E.J. Dionne opens his book Souled Out: Reclaiming Faith and Politics After the Religious Right with an anecdote about Jesus’ political party. In this story, a son asks his “straight Democrat” mother if she would change her ways if Jesus came back and voted Republican. “Aw, hush, why should he change his party after all these years?” she replies.
