Forty years later, the Vatican has forgiven John Lennon for saying the Beatles were “more popular than Jesus.” But Ringo Starr thinks this is just a distracter factor.
The Catholic Church is in the midst of a worldwide pedophile priest scandal, but they chose this time to forgive [lastfm]The Beatles[/lastfm] of their sins, and call their music “beautiful” and refer to the band as “a precious jewel.”
Ringo Starr isn’t buying it. The drummer told CNN, “Didn’t the Vatican say we were satanic or possibly satanic — and they’ve still forgiven us? I think the Vatican, they’ve got more to talk about than The Beatles.”
Lady Gaga, your move. Claim to be more popular than the Pope or Jesus, and let’s see how this plays out.
