Audacious announcement from the Vatican announcing that John Lennon has now been forgiven for his remark about the Beatles being more popular than God.
First of all, I didn't know the Vatican really concerned itself with such matters.
Secondly, the remark was made 42 years ago while John himself ascended to the right hand of (my) god almost twenty-eight years ago.
For some reason, this just makes me so angry.
As if an offhand remark made by a twenty-something year-old rock star forty-two years ago requires an official forgiveness from a man who dresses in dresses and claims to know What God Thinks.
I suppose we can all sleep more peacefully now.
Thanks, Pope for setting it all straight.
And when I say "thanks" I mean, shut the fuck up. This reminds me of how the Mormons like to volunteer their time to go get baptized for every dead person in the world in absentia so that everyone can go to Mormon heaven, whatever that is.
It's not just content to screw around with the living.
Nah. They have to fuck around with the dead, too.
They're either raisin' 'em or baptizing 'em or forgivin' 'em.
I wonder what John would say. Probably something like, "Bite my ass, Pope."
Or maybe that's just what I'd say. But since John's not here anymore to say anything, I'll just say it for him.
Bite my ass, Pope.
And that's all I have so say about that.
