The Vatican Finally Apologizes … to The Beatles?

May 4

on the 40th anniversary of The Beatles’ breakup, the Catholic Church’s official newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, issued a Papal dispensation the band, essentially, for living the lives of the astronomical rock stars they were.

Ringo Starr responded to the church: “I think the Vatican, they’ve got more to talk about than The Beatles.”

Starr alludes to a legitimate point: Why, amid a resurgence of allegations of pedophilia and other sex abuse in the church on a global scale, does the Vatican’s newspaper see the prudence in writing a tribute spread to The Beatles? At least two Beatles might find their way out of the ninth circle of Hell in their dispensation. One hopes the boys get the news.
