Shorter introduction, more pith please. This is not really a commentary; I wanted to read more about the how and why of Colbert, not the what. Colbert's faith is so genuine, it is obvious even when he is poking fun at Christians. I remember telling my kids, when he was still doing the God spot on the Daily Show, that this man is a Christian. He never said he was at that time, but it was infused in his being, which is why he is credible when he talks about religion. One of the ways he reveals truth is, in the manner of a catechism, by asking questions and getting answers from the catechised. He plays the seeker, the devil's advocate, not the teacher; but in drawing out the response, the teaching comes.
