Vatican Forgives the Beatles

In 1966, John Lennon claimed that The Beatles were “more popular than Jesus,” a statement that enraged many Catholics.  However, this week, the Vatican has made peace with the Fab Four.  According to the Associated Press, The Vatican newspaper paid tribute to the group to mark the 40th anniversary of the band’s break-up.  The paper printed an article that reads, “It’s true, they took drugs; swept up by their success, they lived dissolute and uninhibited lives…But, listening to their songs, all of this seems distant and meaningless.”  The article goes on, “Their beautiful melodies, which changed forever pop music and still give us emotions, live on like precious jewels.” (MTV News)
