Stephen Colbert is more than a nice guy. Vice President Joe Biden’s appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, his first interview since his son Beau succumbed to cancer this spring, was a deeply spiritual and tear-jerking moment. Stephen connected to Mr. Biden on a deeply reverent and spiritual way. The demeanor of talk show host was replaced with the love of a Christian for another.
In a recent interview for ‘Salt And Life‘, Stephen revealed his motivation and philosophy for life. He is a devoted practicing Catholic. Fr. Thomas Rosica asked him about making fun of the church, Colbert said he wouldn’t stop just because he has a bigger platform:
“I mean I’ll still make jokes about the church, I’ll make jokes about anything… as long as you’re not being malicious, I don’t think you can leave anything off the table,It wouldn’t feel right for me, it wouldn’t feel good for me, it wouldn’t be obeying my own conscience, I suppose, to make jokes about the sacraments, or specifically the Eucharist… a nacho cheese Eucharist joke… not. I mean, the church is an important part of my life, I would be crazy if I didn’t make jokes about it.”
