Lennon Quote

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink.... I don't know what will go first, rock 'n' roll or Christianity. We're more popular than Jesus now. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me." - John Lennon March 5 1966, Interview London Evening Standard

The disciples ruin it for me, too, especially the current-day ones.

Yep, I gotta agree. The current day ones with all the preaching down to people are a serenity breaker. I have difficulty with finger wagging hypocrites.

And the flack he got for that. I remember kids in my school whose parents burned all their Beatle records.
Damn. Lennon was smart. I miss him so much.
Love you, SB....Ms. Moon

Lennon... so misunderstood... if people had only stood back to understand the true meaning of what it was he was actually saying, without taking it literally and ignorantly. 8/12/80 I remember where I was...

Ms. Moon,
He was my favorite Beatle by far. George was next.

Love, SB.

Lilacsandy,
Exactly. He was misunderstood, and he was SO witty and smart.

Love, SB.
