In another discussion, Martin asked Colbert, “who is God for you?”
“It’s Jesus Christ,” Colbert immediately replied. “Not an old man with a beard."
He added that he typically thinks of Jesus whenever he is asked that question, but “that image dissolves, as I try to subsume that image into the Trinity."
"If I can love, I can be free,” he said when asked what he most frequently prays for. “When I think of love, I think of God, and when I think of God, I think of love."
Colbert has featured several segments of his "Late Show" on CBS which focus heavily on religion in a positive light. He has also debated some notable atheist celebrities, such as fellow comedian Ricky Gervais, on issues such as God's existence, Creation, science, and religion.
