Killing In the Name Of…

Posted by shanoah on December 21, 2009

The Vatican, on behalf of Pope Benedict XVI, made a statement trying to establish and safeguard the name, image and any symbols of the Pope as being expressly for official use of the Holy See unless otherwise authorized.

Yay, trademarks. So they want to prevent us from using the name Pope Benedict XVI unless authorized, or this symbol:

Emblem of the Papacy

So, no saying Pope Benedict XVI here. We’ll have to be careful not to say Pope Benedict XVI accidentally.

Hmmm… Catchy name, isn’t it? Pope Benedict XVI Pope Benedict XVI... Pope Benedict XVI

In any case, there’s apparently this tradition that whoever wins the show “The X Factor” also gets the top of the music charts for the UK for Christmas. And there was a grassroots campaign this year to overseat that, and make a Rage Against the Machine song the top of the charts.

And it worked. So here is a remixed version of the song, Killing In the Name of… Pope Benedict XVI.
