Jon Stewart calls for Bill O’Reilly to be next Pope: He’s got the inside track on infallibility
On his show Thursday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart again poked fun at the search for the next Pope.
Stewart suggested that Fox News host Bill O’Reilly would make a good leader of the Catholic Church, since he already believed he was infallible. But Stewart doubted O’Reilly would give up his position as a Fox News host to accept the “demotion” of Pope.
Noting a reporter described one of the contenders for Pope looking like a “boy scout helping a priest” while he was helping an elderly Cardinal, Stewart remarked, “Boy scouts helping priests? What could be more wholesome than that?”
Stewart also mocked another Cardinal who called on the Catholic Church to make an outreach to women.
“Oh, here is an idea. You want to make an outreach to women, maybe you could consider one of them for Pope? Oh, too much? How about for Cardinal? No? Bishop? Priest? Well, good luck with that outreach.”
