Colbert: If Mormons Posthumously Baptize Holocaust Victims, I'll Posthumously Circumsize Mormons

 Elie Wiesel has recently spoken out against the far too common Mormon practice of posthumously baptizing Holocaust victims--including a record nine baptisms of Anne Frank.

In his new segment on the controversy, Colbert gets in a few digs at the Mormon tiers of heaven (the top of which is only reseved for true Mormons), his own Catholic faith and a certain recent comedy film too (to tell you which one would spoil the joke), before he gets down to his retributive business.

"Right now I'm going to balance everything out by converting all the dead mormons to Judaism," says Colbert, before he ritually circumcizes a hot dog in proxy for all the world's departed Mormons. "Mormon Tov!" he cries.
