We’ve already seen Pope Francis cast as an action hero in an epic movie trailer for his encyclical on climate justice, but this might be the best take yet: The Pope gets up on stage to drop a few rhymes — and the mic — at an otherwise dull open mic night.
“Cynical about my encyclical? I’m lovin it! /
No government can overcome our covenant.”
With this type of attention being paid to the Pope’s climate message, it’s no wonder the usual climate denier suspects are lining up to attack the Pope’s credibility.
The video was made by NYC-based filmmaker Brian Lannin.
Pope as rapper? Maybe not as far-fetched as you think:
