#PopeBars Is the Hashtag We Didn’t Know We Needed

As we know, Christian rap parodies are just not very good. They’re usually made by people who only seem to have the faintest idea of what rap actually sounds like, and are more than happy to substitute vaguely rhyming words for actual rapping, which is like drawing a stick figure of Michaelangelo’s David and expecting people to think it’s a laugh riot. It’s not. Nor are Christian rap parodies.

But miracles still come to the faithful, and that is apparent today after a picture of Pope Francis hit the Internet in which he looks for all the world like he’s about to drop the hottest album of 2015. Twitter fell in love with the picture and started putting together some real lyrics for MC Francis and, what do you know, a lot of them are terrific.

Thus was #PopeBars born, and it’s a late entry for one of the best hashtags of the year. Here are just a few of our favorites.
