Stephen Colbert and Oprah Get Biblical on ‘The Late Show

From The Daily Beast-

Unlike some of his late-night contemporaries—Bill Maher, John Oliver, etc.—Stephen Colbert is a devout Christian.

The limber host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert grew up the youngest of 11 children in a very Roman Catholic family, and was raised in Charleston, South Carolina. He attended an Episcopal school there, and is currently an ordained minister who teaches Sunday school. In the lead-up to the Late Show premiere, Colbert even sat down for a rare, remarkably candid interview about his faith with Father Thomas Rosica, media attaché to the Holy See Press Office, for his show Witness.

So when Colbert welcomed the one-and-only Oprah Winfrey on his show to promote her new OWN series Belief, a 7-night television event exploring the origins of various faiths, the two outsized personalities got downright Biblical.
