In August of 1966 John Lennon mentioned to a reporter and old friend that the Beatles were bigger than Jesus, bigger than christianity. What John was trying to relate was that, here in modern times, the Beatles and their music reach more people and influence more people than Jesus could in the old days. Also, and here is the interesting part, in England there was a general feeling that Christianity was dead. The War could do that to a people. The countless dead, and the horror of war, that we here in America did not have to witness on our own soil. Of course the media got their hands on it, and Datebook, a teen magazine, ran a front page headline that said "Beatles Bigger Than Jesus". Of course the first ones to raise their rightous indignation was the bible belt down South, starting with Memphis cancelling shows and the Ku Klux Klan making thier insane point of view known. All in all, many radio stations refused to play their records for a while. Big Deal. The Beatles didn't care, they were bigger than Jesus. For real. The band paid the price, Lennon made his apology, sort of. I felt he did not need to explaine a thing to me. I got it the first time. This all happened 46 Summers ago. And the media is still driving confusion and fear, more than ever..Join the Revolution this Saturday 7-10am.
