Pope Francis was in Africa since last week, during which he visited Kenya, Uganda and The Central African Republic. While at Bangui in CAR, he delivered a speech holding a mic like a real MC.
“Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters,” he said
“We must, therefore, consider ourselves and conduct ourselves as such,” he added. He was speaking at a mosque in the town, a violence hot spot in the war-torn country.
The people of the interwebs made the most of the photo! They came up with memes and witty lyrics to the narrative. Here are some of the lyrics that Pope would have spitting if it was a real rap session in CAR. The memes have been trending under #PopeBars.
