Heretic Jon Meacham

Jon Meacham was Stephen's guest on the May 1, 2006 edition of The Colbert Report.

The title of his book was something Stephen could appreciate, but from there, the interview went south. Meacham disagreed with Stephen's contention that the Founding Fathers made America a Christian Nation, and even went so far as to claim that Thomas Jefferson cut out all the references to Jesus' divinity in his copy of the Bible.

Stephen nailed him by reminding him that "In God We Trust" is printed right on all of our money.
