He Teaches Sunday School, Motherf*cker!

Earlier in the week, Stephen Colbert had Philip Zimbardo on The Colbert Report to discuss Zimbardo’s book, The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil. After a few minutes, though, the interview turned into a theological discussion concerning — among other things — whether or not God created hell (and by extension, evil) and how folks end up there.

Watch the full interview below. The good stuff starts around the 4:00 mark.

So not only is Colbert a great entertainer when it comes to White House Correspondents’ Association dinners, he’s also got some pretty good theological chops to boot!

More info and comments can be found on the No Fact Zone, here and here. You can read Zimbardo’s follow-up response at The Hero Workshop.

On a related note, does anyone else think that Colbert’s exclamation would make for an awesome t-shirt? It’s at least as good as ​“Colbert Has Stones.”
