Summary This work shows that the contentious mixture of religion and politics in America is nothing new. Four decades ago, Father Robert Drinan, the fiery Jesuit priest from Massachusetts, not only demonstrated against the Vietnam War, he ran for Congress as an anti-war candidate and won, going on to serve for 10 years.
