Colbert and His Catholic Faith

I was browsing the net and I found that the Anchoress has found another interesting topic as well as blog. The subject was Colbert who of course is the controversial Comedian and also host the Colbert report. Read this link that also the Anchoress links to. Well , it seems that Colbert is a pretty devout Catholic and in fact makes no bones about it on his show. Colbert might be more liberal than me on doctrianal matters, but it is refreshing to see such open and genuine display of religious faith from the entertainment mindset. I mean this is pretty stunning to hear from the Hollywood folk:
I love my Church, and I'm a Catholic who was raised by intellectuals, who were very devout. I was raised to believe that you could question the Church and still be a Catholic. What is worthy of satire is the misuse of religion for destructive or political gains. That's totally different from the Word, the blood, the body and the Christ. His kingdom is not of this earth.

I also like this mormon2catholic blog that of course had the original story. Being a convert to faith, I like convert blogs. Plus, it gives me a way to help as new Catholics go throught the up and downs of their first few years as Catholics. Te archives seem pretty good and I guess if there is a possibility that we are going to have a Mormon President, it seems like a good idea to find out more in detail what they believe. I have knowledge of some of their beliefs but not all. She seems to give an unbiased account of the basics on most things. This brings ups a related question that has been going around. That is the big elephant in the room, Romney and his Mormon faith. I have stated a couple of times that in the end I think this issue and how the Christian right would view it has been overblown. However a couple of people have emailed and begged to differ. So I am going to do a post on that later today perhaps and go into these controversal waters. I am sure I will end up offending half the world before it is over. However, this poll has created a little bit of a stir among Romney supporters so I might as well delve right into it -more later.
