"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

First Gallileo and now Lennon

Apparently the Vatican is in a forgiving mood these days. That young rapscallion John Lennon was just "boasting" as a brash youth when he claimed that the Beatles were bigger than Jesus Christ (which they were). All is forgiven. Of course, if there is a heaven, I'm sure John's up there right now laughing his ass off at these ancient men in funny hats whose relevance to the modern world is quickly slipping away like the last shreds of a bad dream.
