Stephen Colbert Flips a Coin: Pope Francis’ Socialism? or Fox News’ Capitalism?

Comedian Stephen Colbert had a decision to make.

The self-described “America’s most prominent Catholic” is also, in his own words, its “foremost capitalist.”  So when Pope Francis talks about “redistributing wealth”, he experiences a crisis of faith–humorously described by Colbert as “Either the Pope is wrong, or God’s a commie.”

So how does Colbert decide what to do?  He flips a coin!

Colbert is a kind of Everyman, asking questions on behalf of us all.  His routine is funny, but do you see where he’s coming from?
