At one time I heard Stephen Colbert was possibly a cafeteria Catholic, also known as Christmas and Easter Catholic, whatever your words choice. But now from the Cafeteria is Closed blog comes this bit from Comedy Central.
Whoa. This is bordering on dramatic and less comedic. His comments aren't funny to be honest and they show his emotional devotion to his Faith, or at least his view of it. He does try to be funny, but the laughs come more from the screen writer than his comments. At break neck speed he recites parts of the Nicene Creed.
I must say though that I don't like him poking at the Pope in the very last few sentences he utters. Making fun of the way he looks in the photo is one thing, but to just tell him he's wrong is not very charitable at best and lacks a complete understanding in what Benedict is actually doing. In a recent post I put up a clip of him dancing and poking fun at 'modern' liturgical music. I don't think I realized how serious he probably was.
