Today's Sermon: Imagine That!
The Vatican "forgiving" John Lennon for boasting that The Beatles were more popular than Jesus.
Meanwhile, imagine this news story on the same page...
New Book, The Lennon Prophecy, Asks The Question - Did John Lennon Sell His Soul To The Devil?
Did John Lennon sell his soul to the devil in exchange for his worldly musical success with The Beatles and beyond? That’s the theory set forth by Joseph Niezgoda in his soon-to-be released book The Lennon Prophecy, A New Examination of the Death Clues of the Beatles.
The Lennon Prophecy offers a new interpretation of the hidden messages and symbols that have ornamented Beatles mythology for years and offers the view that Lennon joined historical figures such as Mississippi “Crossroads” blues guitarist Robert Johnson, Dr. Johann Faust, Pope Sylvester II among others who entered into a pact with the devil to exchange their souls for earthly successes. Niezgoda dissects and examines the Beatles’ and Lennon’s recordings and album artwork and follows a fascinating and unique trail of sorcery, mysticism, numerology, backward masking, anagrams and literary and theological writings to explain his conclusions.
I imagine the author spent countless hours listening to recordings played backwards while contemplating the religious implications of the walrus, don't you?
Thus endeth today's sermon.
Go forth today and seek meaning in reality-based phenomena.
And stop trying to demonize a rock 'n roll band.
I mean it, damn it!
-Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527)
