Stephen Colbert on Being a Fool for Christ

I know everyone's talking about Justin Bieber's recent interview, and I'll read that later. Right now, I'm fascinated by this interview with Stephen Colbert.

Now, it’s rare to see performers of this stature speaking so openly (and positively) about faith – with no qualms or equivocations. Even more rare is the performer who displays so much knowledge of his church’s teaching and history. Colbert retells stories from the Gospels, references Thomas Aquinas, summarizes C. S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters, and critiques Anselm of Canterbury. It’s remarkable to see a public figure speak not about “having faith” in general, but about a faith in particular.

You can read the rest.
