Donohue on Colbert

Stephen Colbert has gained quite a bit of notoriety among Catholic bloggers for his common references to his Catholic faith on his Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report.

Earlier this week the man who recited the entire Nicene Creed on his show brought Catholic League president William Donohue on as a guest. The interview below has become an instant classic.

OK thanks for posting this. I had seen his name mentioned several times on various Catholic blogs and now I know what they are talking about. YouTube is awesome eh?

I am very excited that he is so on fire about his faith.

YouTube is great! This is a lot of debate about Colbert. "In character" he frequently displays his Catholic faith. Evidentually many of his "out of character" comments have shown him to be a fairly liberal and progressive Catholic who disagrees with several Church teachings.

The only thing I've seen him say was during another show when he said that he was raised to believe that it is ok to question your church. I don't think that in itself is a bad thing because in the context of that interview I couldn't tell exactly what kind of questioning he was talking about. As a human institution the Church will make mistakes and at times it is appropriate to question instead of blindly following.

So the jury is still out but for right now I'm a fan of his show.
