Jon Stewart Slams Pope Over Sex Abuse Scandal (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The ongoing abuse scandals in the Catholic Church got the "Daily Show" treatment last night, with Jon Stewart laying into the Church's response to the raft of allegations.

In a segment called 'Pope Opera,' Stewart mocked the Church's stubborn refusal to apologize for its actions, saying that even Domino's Pizza is more contrite than the Church.

"Look how sorry Domino's was just for their shitty pizza!" said Stewart. "They had a bad sauce recipe, (and) they've been out there nonstop. 'Oh, we're so sorry. Here, have some Crazy Bread!'"
