BUT WHO FORGIVES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?

Get a load of this:

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – The Vatican's newspaper has finally forgiven John Lennon for declaring that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, calling the remark a "boast" by a young man grappling with sudden fame.

We want to thank the Church for their kindness; I'm sure his soul will now be taken out of the HELL it's been in the last two decades or so he's been dead!

Are these heathens even for real?! What?! Who needs/wants THEIR forgiveness anyway right? This is the institution that sanctioned the conquest and rape of the New World; millions of Native Americans died horrible deaths at the hands of the Spaniards and Portuguese whose greed for gold and other resources decimated the native peoples, ruined cultures forever, and destroyed their rightful "ownership" of this land. The Catholic Church was behind it all of course. For shame! And ya can't forget the Spanish Inquisition! Yes, anyone in Spain or its colonies that was Jewish or Muslim and had not converted to the "right way" was tried and sentenced to a host of horrible torture methods and death! Mel Brooks wrote the best muscial number ever however on this very subject. LOLOL!

I'm not even going to get started on the priests and the history of child abuse and other sexual naughtiness! I AM SO GRATEFUL I wasn't raised Catholic! No disrespect if you were, but! My mother had the good sense to get sick of the nonsense a while before I was born! I was however, raised somewhat Pentecostal, which is also one big giant kooky organization that's sending me to hell nonetheless. HA!

Speaking of kooky full-of-crap religions/churches, my good friend sent me this bit:

The only Mormon musician we know that wears Guyliner.

Damn this boycott’s getting hard, Brandon Flowers the endlessly talented lead singer for The Killers is a Mormon who has publically stated he’s against us gays having our civil right to marriage so we WILL NOT endorse their new album Day & Age.

Brandon plays both sides of the fence, and was even written up in November’s Advocate Magazine (which cowardly skirted around his religion), yet he’s hush hush about the fact he doesn’t support gay marriage and also sides with his church on all matters of “morals.”

So he can take drugs, and drink coke on occasion, but we’re going to hell?

Alex has loved The Killers for years but if they don’t love their fans back, why bother? We can live without The Killers.

That’s his religious right of freedom, but some say you can download the entire thing online and not put one penny into his pocket.

Somehow I'm hoping this story is wrong, because I really like THE KILLERS and the lead singer Brandon, crazy Mormon or not!

I didn't enjoy COLDPLAY earlier this year due to my seats and the shitty venue, so I'm going to check them out again tomorrow! Wish me better luck this time!

Now millions of Catholics around the globe can finally listen to Lennon and The Beatles without going to hell.

There's still a few things the queen has not forgiven him for ... so he's not quite out of hell yet.

So what does it matter if the Vatican forgive Lennon? Wasn't the crazy protestants that started the ruckuss? The Southern Baptists or some other nutty evangalical christian group. The Catholic church has lost much of its influence in our time. So... so what?
As far as the Mormon Ban goes... fuck them. It is time for a gay war! It is us against them, I know only the lesbians will fight cause most gay men are such cowards and don't like being inconvenienced.
