The Beatles Have Been Forgiven



The Catholic church has forgiven The Beatles for their drug use and rock star life-style. A little too late perhaps as a couple members are already in the great beyond; forgiveness long granted I'm sure. People always bring up the Lennon quote, "We're bigger than Jesus now," forgetting that it was taken completely out of context. He never said it as a truth, but as an observation to the chaos he was caught in the middle of.

Now Lennon was no saint, and he admitted for himself as well as the rest of the band many indiscrepancies, but he, as I've said before, put himself on the mend throughout his entire life—always trying to change, to be a better man.

I think the church is trying to miserably change the subject from their own, cough, issues. Their PR person needs some serious spanking.

  3. The Beatles don't need to be 'forgiven' by anyone. Who the hell do they think they are?

  4. I know. That's why I haven't been to confession in so many years, because I could never get past the knowledge that the priest was just a man in a suit. And any secrets I had, and there were many, were not for him to hear. But then, I'll never get to taste that dry wafer again.

  5. In which case I'm a little sorry you tasted it in the first place!
