&ldquoChristianity will go,&rdquo Mr. Lennon had stated in an interview published 5 months earlier. &ldquoIt will vanish and shrink. I needn&rsquot argue about that I know I&rsquom appropriate and I will be proved appropriate. We&rsquore much more popular than Jesus now. I don&rsquot know which will go first &mdash rock &amp roll or Christianity.&rdquo

The profile ran in a British newspaper with out controversy. But when a teen magazine in the U.S. reprinted the quote in late July &mdash just ahead of the Beatles embarked on a U.S. tour &mdash Americans took the slight to heart.

Radio stations, especially in the South, refused to play the Fab 4&rsquos music. Members of the Ku Klux Klan picketed the tour, and conservative groups burned their records.

Mr. Lennon apologized at the start off of the tour &mdash which ended up getting the Beatles&rsquo last &mdash but it was clear he was frustrated by the outrage:

&ldquoI suppose if I had mentioned tv was more well-liked than Jesus, I would have got away with it. I am sorry I opened my mouth.&rdquo

Matthew Sedacca wrote these days&rsquos Back Story.
