Not THAT unlikely -- Colbert's a Catholic Sunday school teacher! :-) Great video, Steve. Thanks for posting it.

I enjoyed this. Colbert is great at improvisation/timing.

Someone doesn't know their Colbert well enough.

There is one video where Colbert had on Philip Zombardo author of the Lucifer Effect. Zombardo was arguing something along the lines that we are inately good, that power corrupts, and that God was jealous of Satan and that's why Satan was kicked out.

Colbert gave an excellent rebuttal to all his hogwash. Zombardo then said something you sound like a Sunday School teacher. Colber replied, "I am a Sunday School teacher ********".

I've heard these things about Colbert as well. If you haven't seen this, he does a great Christmas duet with Elvis Costello for a Christmas special he did last year:

The elephant analogy really is quite good Gospel exegesis. Shows how important assumptions are when people come to scripture.

I don't know what to think - I've also heard that Cobert's show is pure parody.

And that he campaigned for the baby-killer in chief, and he isn't unaware enough to not have known that, so he -can't- have been a Christian of any stripe at that time for "no murderer has eternal life in him."
