Stephen Colbert Gives Up Catholicism for Lent (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert opened 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) with an ash cross signifying Ash Wednesday on his forehead.
After referring to himself as "TV's most famous Catholic," and explaining the rules of the Lenten period that follows Ash Wednesday, Colbert declared "For the next 40 days, I am giving up Catholicism. It's a difficult sacrifice, but that just shows my devotion to the great religion I no longer practice."
"Wow, I feel so empty," Colbert exclaimed, after dramatically wiping the ash cross off of his forehead. "Is this what Unitarians feel like all the time? I mean, this is terrible, now there is nothing to keep me from masturbating. Fight it! Fight it!"
