Their website explains the basic principles of "Jonism," including the faith's theological foundations. Why is Jon Stewart a God? According to the "Jonsons," it's because, "He is not a man because no man can be consistently that funny. He is not an animal because he is way too articulate. He is not a plant because... well... he moves too fast. He is neither an idol nor is He a statue of any kind although his exquisitely times pauses make us wonder sometimes."
For non-US readers, Jon Stewart hosts the late night “Daily Show” – the fake news show that is more on the money with the stories behind the news than the real news. It is certainly the funniest show on TV and the one I never want to miss. But Jon Stewart is God? How dare they blaspheme against His Noodliness? I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you!
Still it raises an interesting question. Since The Colbert Report is a spin-off from The Daily Show – its progeny if you will – does that make Stephen Colbert The Son Of God? (AAh, forgive me oh noodly one.)
