My favorite lines in bold below:

The Catholic Church issued a statement threatening to close its homeless shelters in DC if gay marriage becomes legal there. To which Colbert quipped: "I mean, they have no choice. After all, as Jesus said, 'If you wish to be perfect, go and sell your possessions and give the money to the poor... unless a couple of dudes register at Pottery Barn, in which case, f**k the poor.'"

In response to Gov. Carcieri's veto in which Carcieri called the funeral rights bill "disturbing trend" signifying the erosion of traditional marriage, Colbert "applauded" Carcieri's stance, saying: "This is an assault on marriage from beyond the grave. They're like gay zombies... These gay zombies want our braiiiiins."
