      Married priests and female priests haven't added to the numbers of the Anglican clergy. Why would it be different for the Catholics?

                        I love how Stephen Colbert allows his guests to speak and finish their thoughts. Doesn't have the need to constantly hear his own voice.

                                  Jim Moriarty was the hottest character of the show, and that's saying a lot considering Benedict fucking Cumberbatch was in that show.

                                          Andrew scott has a magnetic personality. I wish he didn't care about keeping his talk short because he made a lot of sense.
                                          Hope he wins an Oscar someday.
