Church school bans Lennon classic

This kind of thing really burns my rope. The BBC reports that a church school in Devon, England has withdrawn John Lennon’s song “Imagine” from an end of term school show “after teachers ruled that its lyrics were anti-religious.” What freakin’ year is this anyway? WKRP in Cincinnati dealt with this exact issue best when a religious leader complained against this exact song. I remember him complaining to Arthur “Big Guy” Carlson, who was a religious man himself how the song was blasphemous because it said that “there was no heaven” to which Mr. Carlson replied: “That’s not what (John Lennon) says. He says “Imagine there is no heaven” which is quite a different thing altogether.

Good one Big Guy. Sigh…
