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.

Can you help us out?
