  1. Mr. Anderson… I keep reading your blog for moments like this. Thanks for bringing this my attention. My vision of Christianity is not any fuller thanks to this – but it is certainly richer.

    Colbert is such a bizarre guy that I can’t take him seriously but, still, occasional moments like this make me wonder aloud whether he might actually be a serious thinker.

    Is there a seriousness on the other side of silliness that’s much deeper than my seriousness? Maybe.


  2. Christof,

    Apparently, the guy teaches sunday school in his local parish and is a devout Catholic. He’s to the left of where I am, but I like him a lot and watch him as much as I can.
