Since this Fun Friday also falls on April Fool’s Day, here’s a little something for everyone:

Jews: From the JTA Archive: April Fool’s Day lessons for Jewish Pranksters

Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Jains, Quakers, Shakers: Stephen Colbert Talks Religion With Stephen Prothero

Catholics: Pope Benedict, Manga Hero

Evangelicals, Black Christians: Best. Sermon. Ever? Check out the “F”-Word Pastor! (It’s probably not what you think.)

And, as a bonus, here’s an unintentionally entertaining story from Catholic News Agency about how Guatemala’s anti-nepotism law has prompted the president and his wife to get a divorce, so that she can run for office. A spokeswoman for Guatemala’s Federation for the Defense of Life and Family says the couple is making “a mockery of the institution” of marriage. (Something tells me that most Christians will “F” them  — see link above — if this is basically a legal technicality.)
