Fr. Jim Martin appeared on the Colbert Report last night. He did a great job placing the pope’s comments in their proper context (“If you have a problem with Pope Francis, you have a problem with Jesus.”). But the highlight of the show was when Stephen Colbert mocked the right-wing Catholics who have dismissed the pope’s critiques of capitalism by claiming the pope doesn’t really understand capitalism since he’s not American. Colbert notes Jesus wasn’t from here and doesn’t get it either! Feel free to add that to your talking points, Paul Ryan and friends.
