Weeklings!: How Catholicism Made Me Gay (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Pope Francis and I disagree about gay marriage, but I hope we can agree that Catholicism totally made me gay. Because it's true.

I spent 18 years as a practicing Catholic, and after much consideration, I realize I wouldn't be the towering gay organism I am now without my church background. In this edition of Weeklings!, join me as I explain how Catholicism made me gay, what I learned from Pope John Paul II, and why baptism was one of my greatest stage spectacles. I didn't even need the white smoke, guys.
