This clip from The Colbert Report owned me… “reporting” on Christmas & charity.
Colbert’s over-the-top satire speaks louder and more directly than most sermons.
Sometimes it takes a comedian to say the things the rest of us are scared to admit.
Watch it to the end and tell me his conclusion doesn’t leave your mouth wide open.

“If this is going to be a “Christian Nation” that doesn’t help the poor
EITHER we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are
OR we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor
and serve the needy without condition…
and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.”
