From July 14 edition of CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:

STEPHEN COLBERT (HOST): Earlier this week, [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions spoke to an anti-LGBT hate group in a closed-door speech. Closed door? Come on guys, it’s 2017. It’s OK to come out and let your hate flag fly! You’re here. You fear. We’re used to it.  The group --thank you! We’re celebrating your journey! The group Sessions spoke to was Alliance Defending Freedom, a powerhouse Christian law firm, defending clients like the bakery that refused to make a same-sex wedding cake. They also wrote model legislation, such as “bathroom bills,” which are aimed at keeping transgender people out of restrooms. So, no cake for gay couples, no bathrooms for transgender people, and bisexuals may not use shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle. Got to pick a side. Got to. It’s in the Bible someplace.  And -- Leviticus. And -- it's always a safe bet. Leviticus is a very safe bet. Whoever wrote Leviticus was very uptight, let me say that. And ADF’s missions has been described as “seeking to recover the robust Christendomic theology of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th centuries.” Ah, the good old days! The third, fourth, and fifth centuries -- when men were men and women died in childbirth at 14
