Stephen Colbert's Solution to Proxy Baptism of Jews: Proxy Circumcision of Mormons


Many Jews have been offended by reports that the Mormon church has posthumously converted some 650,000 Jews to Mormonism by proxy baptism, including many Holocaust victims, the parents of Elie Wiesel, and Anne Frank (nine times.)

Last week, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert came up with a typical Colbertian response. Why complain about these proxy conversions when an easier, more egalitarian solution is obvious? Proxy conversion of dead Mormons to Judaism. How? By proxy circumcision, of course. 

Here's the video clip of Colbert's solution.  Enjoy!
