Irreverence Is the New Reverent

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie | Posted 07.31.2012 | Religion
Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie

It is a real a stretch to see Stewart as a teacher of religion. True, his interviews on religious matters, as on everything else, are always civil. But the fact is that while he avoids anger and bitterness, his jokes and skits on religion have a mocking, dismissive tone.
