Vatican Forgives the Beatles

Vatican forgives The Beatles for 'bigger than Jesus' comment
At the height of their fame The Beatles enraged the Roman Catholic Church by famously declaring they were bigger than Jesus. Their enthusiastic pursuit of the sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle also did little to convince the Vatican they were anything other than a thoroughly bad influence. But now in a move sanctioned by Pope Benedict XVI, the Catholic Church has offered the Fab Four its official seal of approval, forgiving them their various excesses and even lauding them as a “precious jewel”.
My sly side thinks the Pope will be forgiving a lot of things about now, hoping for quid pro quo... Next up, Marilyn Manson and Aleister Crowley? I think NOW would be a good time to ask for indulgences of any sort. The upside to St. Peter (the gatekeeper) turning out to be a pedophile sodomite is that he sets the entry standard pitifully low. John must be rolling in his grave.

Wait, so the church was WRONG about the Beatles?! Does that mean it might be wrong about other things? Does that mean they might not actually be hearing the voice of God correctly?

Well, if the Beatles are now "precious jewels," then I must be a fu**ing diamond! Because I have yet to even start my own life of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll!
