text size A A A

When Catholic priest James Martin, author of Between Heaven and Mirth, appeared on The Colbert Report TV show, Stephen Colbert expressed skepticism that God has a sense of humor. Regarding the Bible, Colbert responded, "It never said Jesus laughed. It said, 'Jesus wept.' The shortest sentence in the New Testament."

Martin explained that Americans overlook the humor in the parables Jesus told.
