Thanks Be Given!

November 24th, 2008

In the annals of rock-n-roll lore not many stories rank as high as John Lennon’s casual remark in a press conference that the Beatles were “more popular than Jesus.” As everyone knows it set off a firestorm of complaints by Christians worldwide, but particularly in the United States where church bonfires took on a whole new twist!  Speaking of twists though, it seems that the story didn’t end there.  More than 40 years after Lennon uttered those famous words, the Vatican has decided to pardon him.  Well thanks be to god!

So if the Pope can forgive John Lennon, it gives us hope that John Deere will one day absolve John Lanolin of The Bleatles.
