Video: Stephen Colbert tells us why the next pope should NOT be Canadian

Stephen Colbert has poked fun at the possibility of a Canadian pope.

On his show this week, Colbert said Cardinal Marc Ouellet’s one major weakness was that he is Canadian.

“Cardinal Marc Ouellet is also a contender with only one major weakness: he is a Canadian,” Colbert said. “The pope cannot be polite. ‘Sorry, but I think God might not want you to use a condom, eh,’ won’t work.”

He then went on to display a photoshopped image of Ouellet with a Team Canada hockey stick instead of a staff.
