The New Pope Just Kissed A Muslim Woman's Foot; Watch The World React

Quick breakdown on what's historic here, folks:1) All popes have washed and kissed feet in this Maundy Thursday ceremony, which is a remembrance of the Last Supper Jesus shared with His disciples. No pope ever has included women. 2) All popes have performed this ceremony with other Catholic priests. No pope ever has included Muslims. No pope ever has included prisoners. Many Catholics are calling his unprecedented break in tradition "questionable" but it's up to us to watch and see how the rest of the world will react. Speaking of which, why don't you share this on your Facebook wall right now to see how your little corner of the world is reacting?

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.
