Jordan Klepper Investigates Christianity's "Super Super Super Dope" Future

Last night on The Daily Show, Jordan Klepper took a closer look at the future of Christianity by interviewing two pastors — the super cool, Grand Theft Auto-playing Pastor Carl Lentz and the very less cool Reverend Dr. Christopher J.
