This is incredible. Bart Ehrman, America’s favorite atheologian, was on the Colbert Report a few years back for his book, “Misquoting Jesus”. Ehrman is a slippery little bugger and Colbert, a devout Catholic, knows it and takes him out handily as only Colbert can.
Seriously, if you have a few minutes it’s worth stripping away the Colbert schtick (fundamentalism, close-mindedness, inerrancy, etc.) and thinking about some of the sound theological moves Colbert is making here. Epic.
