Jesus would have loved separate entrances, says “Colbert Report” host
Stephen Colbert loves the idea of separate entrances for the non-wealthy.
On Monday's “Colbert Report,” the satiric talk-show host embraced a New York City developer's plan to include a separate door for people living in affordable-housing units within a luxury building. It would be located in an alley, and some of the news media have dubbed it a “poor door.”
Colbert said regular people should be honored to live among the extremely wealthy.
“They get to live in a great building in a great neighborhood,” Colbert said. “What else do they want? Dignity?”
He added: “Now who's greedy?”
Colbert also paraphrased Jesus: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven… That's why the rich need a separate entrance to heaven. The needle one smells all camely.”
