In yet another demonstration that the Vatican has its finger squarely on the pulse of today, the Church publicly forgave iconic rock’n’roll band The Beatles Saturday for their history of drug use and inflammatory statements.
Marking the 40th anniversary of the band’s break-up, the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, published a tribute to The Fab Four and publicly made peace with the British rockers this weekend. In 1966, John Lennon famously remarked that the band was ‘more popular than Jesus‘ to the outrage of many Catholics.
Perhaps, by extending this olive branch, the Vatican has finally confirmed Lennon was right.
In all seriousness, this offer of peace between the Holy See and The Beatles is a win-win for music and religion. The editors here at Goodosphere are delighted the Vatican has decided to bury the hatchet and simply Let It Be.
