Stephen Colbert took a break from being the interviewer in order to be the interviewee in a segment of CBS’s “Face The Nation” set to be released on Sunday.
Host John Dickerson, referencing a comment Colbert had previously made, asked him what sort of questions he would have if he were to have Jesus in the hot seat.
Colbert, grinning a genuine smile, had quite a few questions for his religious savior.
“Is this all there is? Is it all here, or is there something after this? Is the Kingdom of Heaven around us and we do not see it, or if I’m good do I get something? Or is it just being good that I get? Do I get to see those people who are gone? Do I get to see them again? Is that part of the thing? Is that part of the deal?”
It is refreshing to see this sense of genuineness in a religious man. Most often this sort of positive religious behavior is overshadowed by those who use religion to spawn divisiveness and hatred.
