The Untold Truth of Jimmy Kimmel

While not something often associated with hot comedians, Jimmy Kimmel is a devout Catholic who has been very outspoken about his religious upbringing and beliefs. Growing up, Kimmel was an altar boy in his hometown of Las Vegas and a long-time advocate for the benefits of the Catholic Church. In 2017, Republican Senate hopeful Roy Moore was in the midst of underage sexual assault charges when “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” sent one of their regulars to break up a church gathering for Moore. Moore responded with a tweet to Kimmel that read, “If you wanna mock our Christian values, come here to Alabama and do it like a man” (via USA Today).

However, Kimmel got the last laugh on her show by defending her religious beliefs in a monologue directed at Moore. As seen on Relevant, Kimmel said, “It doesn’t fit your stereotype, but I happen to be a Christian too. I made my first communion, I was confirmed, I pray, I support my church, one of my closest friends is a priest, I baptize my children… So if you agree, when we sit down, I will share with you what I have learned in my church. , imposing on underage girls is a no-no. Some even consider it a sin.” Kimmel then donated $5,400 to Moore’s Democratic opponent, according to Yahoo.
