Hands up. How many people saw this and thought, "Did someone go and start a Beatles religion?" 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I'm not sure about them, but they were not that religious with exception of George and now Ringo, right?

I don't know about Ringo but I have always thought that Paulie is slightly Christian, George is a Hindu of course and John… Erm, he was a person interested in many religions and he liked the spiritual aspects of them, but in the end "God is a concept by which we measure our pain"

Here, stolen from Sunii, are the boys religions:

John-Anglican/Episcopalian

Paul-Roman Catholic

Ringo-I'm really not sure. Some people say he is Jewish. All I know is I think he believes in God.

Check this out.

And raise your hand if, after reading the topic, you were ready to say "Dear Sir or Madam, how do I join the religion?"

You'd need a Beatles Bible for that a-hard-days-night-george-10

In Many Years From Now (or possibly Anthology) Paul makes it pretty clear that he has no interest in religion.

In the early years George was asked about God, and he said something like "We haven't decided about that yet". Interesting use of "we".

John rejected Christianity, but I believe he softened towards it in his later years. No time to look for quotes but I'm sure there's something in his 1980 interviews.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I'll do a little checking and edit my post with what I find.

Off of the top of my head, I do remember a quote of his saying that if he has to pay taxes, that he would rather it go to a Christian commune. And SWbWoM, he expresses a wish that Christians would behave more like Christ.

I seem to remember someone talking about that being from Many Years From Now (I never read it). I also remember in the Anthology DVD, he matter-of-factly mentioned his mother was Catholic and his father was Protestant. Then he never mentioned it again. Every time I watch that bit I keep wondering why he brought it up in the first place if he wasn't going to talk about it. Not that I wanted him to; it just struck me as being odd.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Oh yes, I always wondered why that was in. Clever catch, Zig, In honour of the catch, here is a parody. (Band, I'm A Loser. This is performed on cello and organ):

You're the best, You're the best

And you always Have been

You're the Best, You're the best

And you always have been

In all the posts I have read, or have made

There is one poster I shouldn't try to Trump

He  is a moderator, and a fine one at that

I should have known not to fight in the end

You're the best, You're the best

And you always Have been

You're the Best, You're the best

And you always have been

I always get beat, by the amiable Zig,

No one can even come close

He is a man, and a loving husband

I should have known not to go after him,

You're the best, You're the best

And you always Have been

You're the Best, You're the best

And you always have been

You're the best!!!

Zig, what do you think?

*9* How fitting.
