Faithful Politics

Being faithful with our politics, not political with our faith.

Stephen Colbert on the Politics of Jesus and Christmas

In a recent Colbert Report the satirist highlighted the difficulty some of us have with Christ’s message of concern for the poor.  While satire only has a limited range of mobility in argumentation (especially in its lack of nuance), Colbert uses it to its fullest extent here.  If you are attempted to get offended by his political characterizations, recognize that it is comedic and instead focus on making sure his generalizations don’t apply to you this Christmas season.
