Vatican Forgives Lennon's Remark

"The remark by John Lennon, which triggered deep indignation mainly in the United States, after many years sounds only like a 'boast' by a young working-class Englishman faced with unexpected success, after growing up in the legend of Elvis and rock and roll," Vatican daily Osservatore Romano said.

The article, marking the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' The White Album, went on to praise the pop band.

"The fact remains that 38 years after breaking up, the songs of the Lennon-McCartney brand have shown an extraordinary resistance to the passage of time, becoming a source of inspiration for more than one generation of pop musicians," it said.

Thanks to Chris, who explained to me a few years ago what Lennon meant. Rock music isn't the devil.

  1. Considering it's your first interview since coming back from the dead, would you like to set the story straight from your eyes? Maybe a little revisionist history, John-boy?

  2. Well...I said what I said because Christianity needed to get with the times...and to some extent that's still true today. Also, don't imagine there's no heaven, because there actually is, and it's awesome. Like, LSD awesome. And I would know.
