Stephen Colbert a Marcionite?

Somebody call the Holy Office. Stephen Colbert jumped out of the TV this week for a guest spot at Maureen Dowd’s New York Times column. Shamelessly putting himself forward as a presidential candidate, he outlined his core convictions, among them: “After Jesus was born, the Old Testament basically became a way for Bible publishers to keep their word count up.”┬áThis from the guy who played Irenaeus to Elaine Pagels’ Valentinus. Say it ain’t so!

One thought on “Stephen Colbert a Marcionite?

  1. OK, maybe a Marcionite. But, have you seen his *brilliant* mockery of liturgical dance? I’d cut Marcion some slack for a performance like that.
