Steven Colbert on Christian love, deservingness, and politics

As a follow-up to my post last week on Christian love and deservingness, here’s a video in which Steven Colbert takes aim at how these themes are used in politics. Political differences revolve around who is deserving of aid (and how that aid should be given), and in this clip it’s explicitly linked to Christian values.

A great quote from Colbert: “Jesus was always flapping his gums about the poor, but not once did he call for tax cuts for the wealthiest two percent of Romans.”
