Friday's Ironic QOTD

There’s a phrase we live by in America: “In God We Trust”. It’s right there where Jesus would want it: on our money.

Colbert's "The King of Glory": the annual re-posting

Um, we sang "All Glory, Laud and Honor" this year...but I do know every verse of this song....

God Gives Stephen Colbert Amazing Discernment Powers! More at 10!

OK, pretty great funny powers, anyway.

P.s. Not for those easily offended by the ongoing blasphemy of saying aloud "Yahweh."

(But I think the Gourd line is completely worth it.)

HT to Catholic Colbert.

p.s.  I'm resuming posting but things are pretty rough around the edges...I'm teaching brand new courses (new period, and of course to me) that my sick colleague would have covered, and it means  I am teaching an overload (that is, overtime for four months).  The illness and the job stress hasn't been a great concoction for humor: but I will try to keep it up.  This blog helps me gain some perspective.  Peace, everyone, and thanks for the prayers last week.  My colleague is still going to have a cancer battle, but her prognosis looks a lot better than it did a week ago.

A Colbert Classic: The King of Glory

My favorite Colbert video, and a (formerly? please God? we'll find out tomorrow...) popular Palm Sunday entrance song.

"So, if I didn't wash my arm for a week, you're saying there would be babies growing on my arm?"

The Colbert Report taking on Lee Silver on stem cell research, science and spirituality. Once again, proof: Stephen Colbert rocks.

Watch it here.

HT to the Happy Catholic, who references an interesting article at First Things on Colbert.

(Waiting half an hour for that Comedy Central video to load? Sorry. Go pray at NaPraGoMo until the video loads.)

Colbert: He's In The Race!

No, not St. Paul's I Have Run the Race, but the U.S. 2008 Presidential Race...

See videos of the announcement at "The Word" (with a crossbar I can't type. Bah.).

p.s. HT to The Word for Colbert's Religion Randomizer as well...although be warned, it is funny but VERY politically incorrect (I know, a win-win for many of you).

Wisdom from Colbert

Yet another reason I love Stephen Colbert: he has insights like this....

Always a devout Catholic, Colbert lost his faith after graduating from college. “I was very depressed about it,” he says. “I wanted the idea that I would see my father and brothers again, and it was heartbreaking to think that that wouldn’t happen.” Then, one winter day, as Colbert walked down a street in Chicago, a Gideon handed him a Bible. “It was so cold I had to crack the pages,” he recalls. “I flipped it open, and it had a list of things to read about if you were feeling different ways. Under ‘Anxiety,’ it said ‘Matthew V,’ the Sermon on the Mount.” He paraphrases: “‘Who among you by worrying can change a hair on his head?’ It spoke to me.”


...Colbert remembers the lesson of the Sermon on the Mount: “That’s being fearless,” he says. “Not living in fear is a great gift, because certainly these days we do it so much. And do you know what I like about comedy? You can’t laugh and be afraid at the same time. If you’re laughing, I defy you to be afraid.

Colbert on Mother Teresa

OK, there are a couple clunkers in here, but this video clip made more serious points in five minutes than did the entire Christopher Hitchens screed in Newstweak. Just remember to let the video start loading and then go pray for 10 minutes, kill time on, and then plow the back forty or something, because the Comedy Central site loading takes forever.

(And Fr. James Martin is on too! Woo hoo! I love this guy!)

HT to The Word.

The Joys of Photoshop

Introducing: Pope Stephen. Who has aged quite a bit, given the strains of the office.

Ahhhhhh. More refreshing than a tall glass of Luzianne sweet tea. I have hit the ironic motherload.

If Colbert Were A Prophet, aka The Ironic Catholic Bible Challenge

Bloggerdom glory will go to the person who solves this puzzle. If Stephen Colbert were a prophet, and he had an on notice board, which nation would come next (in the ??? spot)?

I know we have an ecumenical audience here, but I am begging the Catholics to disprove that we never read the Bible. We do, darn it. So...go at it in the midrash box.

WINNER! Kathryn (give me a link, Kathryn) got it right and early! I'm so proud! The answer is in the midrash box.

NEXT QUESTION: Who is the prophet to which I am referring?

WINNER! Diane of Bringing Home the Word got's the first two chapters of Amos.

Stephen Colbert Defends Objective Reality Against Postmodern Corporations

And in our current episode: our superhero Stephen Colbert traps, attacks, reams, and spits upon the evil villian called the Postmodern Construction of Reality, aka Wikipedia, assisted by behemoth corporation Microsoft, in seek of a moral compass.

"Wikilobbying: Reality has become a commodity." Not.
(I love, love, love, love this; a gracious hat tip to Locusts and Honey.)

Dance, Catholic, Dance

I clicked, I watched, I laughed.

I actually think that liturgical dance can be done well, like any other art in service of God. Unfortunately, "done well" occurs about .25% of the time. Trust Stephen Colbert to send up the other 99.75%. (Hat tip to You Duped Me, Lord.)

ALSO: Can't resist adding this piece on Pope Benedict's IPod moves from Jay Leno. Note, no liturgy involved. (Hat tip to Happy Catholic.)
