The Vatican Comments On… The Beatles?

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikPaul McCartney

Forget about priests abusing young children, The Vatican has bigger things to talk about, like The Beattles! Yes, really.

On the 40th anniversary of the group's break-up, The Vatican has forgiven The Beatles after publicly bashing them for their drug and crazed lifestyles.

The Vatican's newspaper L'Osservatore Romano stated in a front-page article:

"It's true they took drugs, lived life to excess because of their success, even said they were bigger than Jesus and put out mysterious messages, that were possibly even Satanic.

They may not have been the best example for the youth of the day but they were by no means the worse. Their beautiful melodies changed music and continue to give pleasure.

Thirteen albums changed the history of popular music and there is little else to add. The Beatles were the most famous and acclaimed band in the world."

WTF?!?

Why "forgive" The Beatles now? Seriously?!?

This little publicity stunt won't make people forget about the real issue at hand.

People want to hear what's going to happen to those abusive clergy and what exactly went on with all the cover-up reports.

    The Pope is an outdated old fossil who has become embarrassingly irrelevant. He can't even comment truthfully about what's happening in his own church.



  2. 2

    you spelled "beatles" wrong.

    well if they are going to forgive pedofile priests, what the hell, the Beatles may as well jump on that gravy train.



  4. 4

    They will say ANYTHING to try to get attention off the fact that the Vatican and the church allowed and then covered up the rape and physical abuse of thousands and thousands of boys and girls throughout the years all over Europe, America, Latin America and Africa. They are desperate for ANY other kind of publicity. If the Pope REALLY wants us to think he gives a crap about those kids, how about he stops hiding Cardinal Law in the Vatican and sends him back to the U.S. so the Boston Police can question him as they wanted to before the church spirited him out of the country?



  5. 5

    Honestly, The Vatican Should S.T.F.U About The Beatle And Talk About The Cover-Ups!
    That's One Of The Fucking Reason Why I Don't Attend To Church… Not The Beatles!!!



  6. 6

    But will The Beatles forgive the Catholic Church for molesting little boys?

    Religion….. I don't get it.



  8. 8

    Didn't they forgive Galileo a few years back for insisting the earth was not flat?



  9. 9

    At least they are apologizing…



  10. 10

    Perez you are the one talking about abusing young children??? How about all your inappropriate posts about kids and young men?
    Yes, the church HAS TO do with something with those priests, but honey you're just as bad as them.
    Also, there are pedos in every church, but that doesn't mean, that everyone in that church is ugly. So shut the fuck up you double standard jerk before you judge!



  11. 11

    LOL! They are forgiving the Beatles to show that "forgiveness is a virtue". They hope that others will follow their example and FORGIVE THE CHURCH. Very manipulative.



  12. 12

    Tear down this irrelevant, outdated and useless "institution." Nobody cares about religion or the Beatles anymore. It's 2010 already!



  13. 13

    I'm surprised nothing's been mentioned about the possiblity of the Pope being arrested when he comes to Britain. Yes, really.



  14. 14

    WTF is this? As if my husband needed one more excuse to be Lapse and I needed one less excuse to "join up"…..



  15. 15

    the vatican can go shit in all their funny-looking hats. like the world has been holding its collective breath waiting for the go-ahead from the fucking pope to like the beatles. way to be timely and topical.

    You're a psycho idiot. Did you just honestly say that somebody making "Innapropriate comments" was the same thing as the systematic torture, rape, and cover up of the abuse of thousands of children spaning decades? You are quite litterally insane.



  17. 17

    The Vatican is full of shit. They are so corrupt, its just disgusting. Way to teach God's word.



  18. 18

    It's not a publicity stunt…i'm no fan of the Catholic Church but this entity isn't some celebrity trying to build up their career. They've been around for centuries and don't need that. I'm thinking they've got a Beatles fan amongst those sending out "press releases".

    BTW, those of you using the horrible acts by the Catholic church as a way to insult all Christians (Catholic or not) obviously have no understanding of the difference between religion and faith.



  19. 19

    ……….even said they were bigger than Jesus and put out mysterious messages, that were possibly even Satanic.
    This is the second most incredible thing quoted from the newspaper within the past few weeks. The first being the comparison of questioning the Pope's role in the priest pedophilia cover up to the persecution of Jews. Just because a person claims to be a holy man/woman doesn't mean it's true. People will say anything: their actions prove it! Those who would defend the Pope must be pedophiles as well, just as the Pope defended the pedophile priests and not the innocents.

    :'(

    Ploy to detract from the Pope's/Vatican's BAD p.r.

    Re: jesyrene
    Eh..I'm usually on your side when you're bashing Madonna, but yes, there are some people that still do care about the Beatles.



  23. 23

    John Lennon NEVER SAID they were "bigger than Jesus" he said they were MORE POPULAR than Jesus, which was true then, and is true now.

    One Thing Is To Make Comments About How Hot a Kid/ Young Man Is And Another Is To Actually Rape Someone!

    SERIOUSLY VATICAN? OMG Please come into this century! I was raised Catholic and still identify as one, but in no way do I support most of the things that make Catholics different from other Christian denominations. I am ashamed of my church and what it has done. The numbers of Catholics are dwindling and I even attended a Christening where this SUPER MEAN priest asked us all to invite our friends to the church since attendance has dropped so much in the last years. You guys did it to yourself! I remember being a kid and knowing about what was going on-it's been too long! Now you have to confess your sins and REPENT!



  26. 26

    Stop fucking kids! period



  27. 27

    Re: jesyrene – WRONG ! The Beatles are still popular. Have looked at a top 100 selling recordings chart within the last year ? As for the church it's just a bunch of horrible lairs promoting evil lies.

    Re: You are so dumb – Actually he said they were TALLER than Jesus.

    "They were possibly Satanic… but they had beautiful melodies!"… well, coming from the Vatican that's about as big of a compliment as you can get.

    Re: beija-flor – I'd just like to point out that, while Perez does comment on, oh, say, Taylor Lautner or whatever, doesn't mean that he's been molesting him, and, actually, there were so many women drooling over Taylor when he was 16 and 17, but that didn't seem to matter to anybody, did it?
    How can you even compare Perez to the sick-ass priests in that fucked up church? Are you serious? Can you not see the insanity of it? Here's an idea, hun, how about you think before you go saying shit like that? I understand that Perez can be a bitch sometime, and a lotta people can't handle that, but, in that case, why don't you fuck off and stop reading, as opposed to accusing him of being like those despicable pedos?!
    There is a HUGE difference between appreciating the way someone looks, and molesting thousands of children. Go fuck yourself.



  32. 32

    I'd like to think that if John Lennon was alive today he'd tell the Vatican to stick their forgiveness up their pope holes. I mean where do they get off forgiving people who in the rest of the worlds eyes have done nothing wrong? It's like the ultimate way to win an argument is to wait untuil the person you have issue with is dead and then forgive them for their wrongdoings when they can't speak back.



  33. 33

    beattles? wow WIN



  34. 34

    Re: jesyrene – CORRECTION: YOU don't care about the Beatles. How the fuck you gonna say nobody cares about the Beatles anymore? A damn video game about them was just created and it sold millions. They're remaking "Yellow Submarine" and yet your dumb ass thinks nobody cares about them. Speak for yourself or shut the fuck up.
