This just in: the Catholic Church leadership, in its great wisdom, has finally seen fit to forgive the late John Lennon for his l966 observation that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus Christ. This pronouncement obviously did great, profound and permanent harm to the Church and religious people everywhere, so the generosity of spirit shown by the Vatican is truly overwhelming and worthy of all our admiration.

Uh, yes, i AM the face of crushing poverty in many areas of the world, several destructive wars, rampant injustice, oppressive and/or bad governments, widespread and blatant violations of the Golden Rule and destructive trends such as overpopulation, these are the kinds of issues that have the Vatican's full attention. That and the all-consuming obsession with abortion.

It's hard to believe the Church is still allowed to call itself Catholic, small or big c. It's gotten awfully petty and parochial in its old age.
