Jon Stewart LOVES Pope Francis (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart has a major man crush on Pope Francis.

The Pontiff has been in the Vatican for six months and his warm demeanor, humility, cold calling people in need, and his positions on gay marriage, atheists, and priestly celibacy have made him hugely popular among Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

That said, Stewart couldn't help but feel a little sorry for the previous Pope, Benedict, whom Jon imagined to be bothered by the popularity of the upstart Pope Francis - which provided just the opening John Oliver was waiting for.
