Father Guido Sarducci stopped by the Rally to restore sanity and/or fear this afternoon and gave a benediction to the crowd.
The chain-smoking, tinted glasses-wearing priest sowed up in a zebra vest and delivered a hilarious monologue. Father Guido Sarducci was a popular character played by Don Novello on Saturday Night Live.
Father Sarducci calle for peace between Muslims and Jews, saying, “They don’t eat pork, you don’t eat pork, let’s build on that.”
The Roots also joined Ysuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, in a rendition of his 1971 hit “Peace Train.” Other performers so far include Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow.
