john lennon has been forgiven for a statement he made…42 years ago!
Semi-official Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has run an article forgiving the late Beatle John Lennon for a controversial statement he made in 1966, when he claimed that his band were “more popular than Jesus“.
The article in the newspaper, which normally reports on the comings and goings of the Pope, said that Lennon had just been showing off and praised the band.
too bad lennon wasn’t alive to feel the relief.

Maybe, but I bet the Pope won’t forgive him for teaming up with Yoko Ono!!
i’m not so sure he should be forgiven for that decision.
