Colbert on Christmas

Stephen Colbert - comedian, satirist, progressive theologian and (possible) heretic unloaded this gem last night:

If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we've got 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. 

This came at the end of his eight-minute opening rant about Christmas.  And if that wasn't enough, the world's greatest musician, Paul Simon, is his guest (at the 14:15 mark).
