It’s not often you see someone recite part of Mass on Comedy Central

I don’t often watch Comedy Central, but I guess Steven Colbert has a regular show there.  In a recent episode he recited the Nicene Creed as his way of issuing “full disclosure” as a reporter.

Pretty funny skit overall, but definitely worth the post because of the Creed.

For those not in the know, the Nicene Creed is a profession of faith that Catholics say weekly as part of Sunday Mass.  Other Christians do it as well.  Not only is it a part of Mass, it is an important metric used by the Catholic Church to determine if a person/group is Christian.  Basically, if you can submit to the Creed, then you are a Christian.  If not, then you’re not a Christian according to the Catholic Church.  Most Protestants do agree with the Creed.  Notable exceptions are the Mormons and the Jehovahs Witnesses.  And if you watched the Steven Colbert skit… the Unitarians don’t submit to the Creed either.
