Steven Colbert, Catholic Comedian


Back in October, comedian Steven Colbert, who is host Comedy Central's The Colbert Reportwas the keynote speaker at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, which was held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. With NY Cardinal Timothy Dolan sitting next to him (see picture above), Colbert remarked that Dolan's outfit of robes and cap made him look like a "flamboyant Zorro" and joked that he was "proud to be America's most famous Catholic" (yes, Colbert is a Roman Catholic). He went on to say
And I'm sure the Cardinal is thinking, 'Stephen, pride is a sin.'  Well, Cardinal, so is envy, so we're even.
He also poked a little fun at Pope Francis, nothing that if the Pope had planned the event, it would've been held at the local iHop restaurant (Source: The Christian Century, November 13, 2013)
