Robert Novak dares to look at Deanovich’s religious background. It makes for good reading:
Brought up in his father’s Episcopal faith (his mother was Catholic), he married a fellow physician who is Jewish. His children were raised Jewish though they and their mother hardly ever attend services now. Dean himself moved from Episcopalian to Congregationalist “because I had a big fight with a local Episcopal church about 25 years ago over the bike path.” He does not hesitate to reveal this information or to declare that he seldom goes to church.
