Stephen Colbert offered the following statement on The Late Show after presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush spoke of admitting only Christian Syrian refugees to the U.S.:
“If you want to know if somebody’s a Christian just ask them to complete this sentence,” Colbert said pulling out his Catechism card. “‘Jesus said I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you….’
And if they don’t say ‘welcomed me in’ then they are either a terrorist or they’re running for president.”

You gotta love Stephen Colbert, the good Catholic boy who remembers his Catechism and takes it dead seriously.
