"The Daily Show" has a new feature on religion, "Holy Shit." (Host Jon Stewart is clearly a big fan of the name.) In Tuesday night's edition of the segment, they took a look at scandals that have hit the Vatican recently, comparing them to the the way the church here in the U.S. treats people who've strayed from church doctrine -- like two pre-schoolers whose parents happened to be lesbian.
