Colbert converts to Islam.
In order to heal tension between Islam and Christianity, Colbert has converted to Islam for Lent.

2. Well, now he's stuck

He has to remain a Muslim for life. If he converts again to a different religion he could face death for being an apostate.

Let us hope, nation, that this is not the case!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostasy_in_Islam

Apostasy in Islam is commonly defined in Islam as the rejection in word or deed of their former religion (apostasy) by a person who was previously a follower of Islam. Islamic scholarship differs on the earthly punishment for apostasy, ranging from death to no punishment at all.

4. I'm sure his bishop appreciates that. Maybe they'll send the pope after him?

5. And get some Islamic schools started
now that the supreme court gave the OK for government support of religious schools.

To test the limits of Christian brotherly love.
