The Colbert Report Chaplain

Looks like Jesuit Fr. Jim Martin has been upgraded from “friend of the show” to “chaplain.” Fr. Martin’s background in the financial world made him a perfect choice to explain why people seem to be flocking back to church in tough economic times (“and not just because communion counts as a meal”). It was an excellent segment and reminded me why I watch The Report “religiously” and also why I do this blog.

  1. I like that Stephen, though clearly making jokes throughout, had enough seriousness to this clip to make it worthwhile in a spiritual sense. Leading Father to discuss why being poor can help you spiritually (detachment from things), what the Church can say to help people understand this, etc.

    Good stuff!
