Pope Rebranding I: Pope Francis the Rock Star

by Scott Creighton

No. It isn’t a joke.

According to Rolling Stone, Pope Francis will release a “prog-rock-infused album” called “Wake Up!” in November of this year. The 11-song album is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. Premiering on Nov. 27, 2015, it will feature Pope Francis’ “words and prayers.”  Huffington Post

He went to Latin America to attempt to re-brand the Catholic church down there to all the folks the church had been screwing for so long. He even made a former Mexican-American slave holder into a saint. Then he went to congress and did his best to push things like the Dream Act and comprehensive immigration reform on behalf of the neoliberal system we have up here.

Now he is looking to re-brand the church’s image to all those young, impressionable kids who listen to progressive/Christian rock.
