At a time when they surely have bigger things to think about, the Vatican’s official newspaper has published a glowing appraisal of the Beatles, calling their music “beautiful” and dismissing their years of drug use and excessive living. On the front page of the L’Osservatore Romano, the paper admits that the band once “said they were bigger than Jesus and put out mysterious messages, that were possibly even Satanic”, but also asks: “what would pop music have been like without the Beatles?” Read more…

The Pope stressed that this apology only extened to The Beatles, that he was not planning to overstep the Church’s jurisdiction regarding Rock Crimes.

It’s the thought that counts.



  One Response to ““One apology at a time,” says Vatican, “OK?””

  1. EVERYBODY, and I mean EVERYBODY, always gets John’s quote wrong.

    This has to be the most misquoted statement in all of history.

    There was ONE source (which I can’t remember at the moment) that actually got it right.

    John actually said “to some people, we’re bigger than Jesus.”

    He never tried to put the Beatles above Jesus. But every journalistic idiot chops off the part where he says “to some people” because that wouldn’t make good press..

    and.. I just found out yesterday (and shamefully never realized it before) that Got To Get You Into My Life is Paul’s love song to pot!!
