Vatican forgives The Beatles for rock-and-roll lifestyle


by Sara Levy

The Vatican has forgiven The Beatles for their misdemeanours, including John Lennon’s claim that the band was “bigger than Jesus”.

An article in the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano offers the band forgiveness for their excesses of “drugs and music”.

“It is true they did drugs and, overwhelmed by success, they lived dissolute and uninhibited years, and they even said they were more famous than Jesus,” the article reads.

However, it added that forty years on, these things seem “distant and insignificant” compared to the legacy of their music.

“The Beatles still astound with their originality and they are a consolation against the continual assault on music lovers by the record industry,” the article added.

“What would pop music have been like without the Beatles?”
