Fantastically Catholic Colbert Clips

Now I know, I know — he’s a satirist. And no, he’s not particularly orthodox. But by Hollywood standards, Stephen Colbert is a pretty darn Catholic man. He frequents Mass, he teaches Sunday school, and has a habit of making new-agers and secularists in all their flavors look really, really stupid, even when he is being intentionally simplistic. Without further ado then: My favorite Colbert clips!

This one was brilliant because his guest — Dr. Zimbardo — made it seem like he’d discovered concupiscence, and got rightfully called out. Needless to say, the Samuel Jackson-esque “I teach Sunday school, mother******” has become a staple part of any of theological debate that happens here at Steubie. (It works best as the ending of a Thomist proof, or in rebuttal to an ad hominem attack on a person’s choice of major.)

Again, most awesome, because Colbert gives Ehrman some basic home-training as to why we don’t freak out when the person of Christ isn’t contained entirely to one Gospel, but is revealed through all of them.

And just for fun:
