Video: Colbert illuminates John Jay Report on pedophile priest scandal in Catholic Church

“This is not a moral failing by the leadership of the church, it's simply a training issue. Like the new guy putting the wrong type of paper in the photocopier, except it's not paper and it wasn’t a photocopier.”

Video clip from Colbert Report May 19, 2011:

"There is good news," says Stephen Colbert, "the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has released the results of an exhaustive $1.8 million dollar study examining the root causes of this tragic abuse of trust.

"I'm relieved to report that they have found the courage to place the blame where it belongs, on free love in the 1960s.”

The sexual abuse scandal, “this horrible horrible shameful chapter,” says Colbert on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central:

“Was caused by the damn hippies.”
