From her page at the Mother Jones site.

[Q]: I assume you are a Jewish liberal, like myself. Do you have any opinions about why Jews tend to be more liberal as a whole?

A: I am quite flattered that you view me as a liberal Jew like yourself. Although raised a conservative Methodist, I am, in fact, a liberal atheist. Many people mistake me for Irish.

Another new quote: a reader reports that (in June? 1999) "E! had a show about religion in Hollywood. Most of the actors and actresses interviewed were decidedly spriritual (in mostly non-conventional ways). There was one four-second clip, sandwiched between all the others without editorial comment, in which Paula Poundstone said, "I'm an atheist, so I don't really know where spirituality fits in for me . . . a devout atheist."
