The Vatican has finally forgiven The Beatles (or rather John Lennon specifically) for the infamous “bigger than Jesus comment”. I won’t comment as Ringo did, suggesting that the Vatican has bigger things to worry about other than what a Beatle said over 40 years. (This is a music blog, after-all.)
I’m just surprised that they never went after Lennon for imagining “there’s no heaven” about 5 years after his “Jesus” comment.
The original video seems hard to find. Most of the links I’ve found from Youtube contain his apology.
