Watch the Pope Help the World Through the Power of Mixtapes


The Pope is helping the world one mixtape at a time.  That’s right, in an effort to reach out to a larger cultural audience the Vatican’s unofficial paper “L’Osservatore Romano” released their top 10 Pop and Rock albums of all time. Apparently it’s perfect for someone stranded on a desert island. The Vatican picking up where VH1 left off.

2. If I Could Only Remember My Name by David Crosby

    “Joseph Ratzinger joined the Hitler Youth in 1941 when, according to him and his supporters, it became compulsory for all German boys. Millions of Germans were in a position similar to that of Joseph Ratzinger and his family, so why spend so much time focusing on him? Because he is no longer merely Joseph Ratzinger, or even a Catholic Cardinal — he is now Pope Benedict XVI. None of the other Germans who joined the Hitler Youth, were part of the military in Nazi Germany, lived near a concentration camp, and watched Jews being rounded up for death camps has ever become pope.”  The Pope is a Nazi!?

    I surprised this list isn’t just a collection of Michael Jackson & Pete Townshend albums.
