Colbert Not Happy With 'Socialist, Poor-Coddling, Gay-Not-Judging, Foot-Washing, Atheists-Hugging Audacity Of Pope'

Colbert was doing his best job of channeling his "hero" Papa Bear O'Reilly this Monday with this little tirade on the latest news about Pope Francis.

Look out. The Pope has gone off and upset Stephen Colbert again.

COLBERT: Out of 1.2 billion Catholics out there, there's only one of them who really bothers me. It's this guy named Frank. I'm so PO'd at this Socialist, poor-coddling, gay-not-judging, foot-washing, atheists-hugging audacity of Pope that I, I've got to tell you, I may start flirting with other religions.

Stephen was not happy about Pope Francis and his decision to allow mothers to nurse their babies in the Sistine Chapel.

COLBERT: How dare the Pope encourage just to whip them out in public!? The Catholic Church has spent the last 2000 years making us feel shame about our bodies. That's why I shower in a bathing suit, while wearing one of those dog cones.

Colbert also lashed out at the Pope for wanting to "scale back the cost of becoming a saint."

COLBERT: You can't slash the cost of becoming a saint. Being rich is the first miracle. Sainthood is like god's country club -- they don't let in poor people, or Jews.
