Colbert: Jesus Is A Liberal Democrat

"If this is gonna be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we've got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition!  And then admit, that we just don't wanna do it."

Stephen Colbert really amazes me sometimes.  His eloquence, despite all the tongue-and-cheek comments, surpasses most of the socially-conscious activists and thinkers we watch and read in the media.

This would be one of the funniest things I've ever watched, if it weren't so hopelessly tragic and desperately horrible.

Thanks for the link, Jared!

Ah, we are living in a strange world, where the comedy shows preach the truth of the Gospel. Thanks for sharing this. I hadn't known Colbert before. He seems to be a good guy and certainly a bit of a thinker. And shows like this seem to be a very sublime way of getting ideas into people's heads. I'd prefer it without all the staged laughter. But maybe this is needed for it to work.

I haven't seen much Colbert in my day, but wow. What a dead-on assessment.
