John Lennon’s “We are bigger than Jesus” comment has to be the most misunderstood quote in the history of quotes. Lennon was absolutely right in his assessment of The Beatles meaning more to teenagers than Jesus did at the moment. In all fairness most of world understood what he was saying, but it was the backwards thinking of the American Bible Belt masses that flipped the fuck out. I watch the old 1966 news footage of kids in Texas throwing their Beatles records and memorabilia in those giant bonfires and I think of two things: 1, didn’t the Nazi Party do the something similar? and 2, I bet those kids, now adults, wish they had all that shit they burned back. idiots.
