* I'm not entirely sure on this one. He started out a communist-but never joined the Party;decided later he was a Marxist;then a Socialist;then a Progressive.
About 6 months before he died,he said he was going to have a Roman Catholic funeral-"for social reasons".
Sure enough, he was laid out with a rosary in one hand, and a copy of the Constitution in the other (symbolizing, they said, his long membership in the ACLU. It seemed ironic to see such devotion to the Constitution he wanted to overthrow, and the church he hated.)
He had a Catholic funeral,( Requiem Mass ), so I assume he must have made his peace with the Padre, if no one else.
