All I Want Is The Truth

"By their fruits ye shall know them."
-Jesus Christ

There's a new hatchet job book out on John Lennon (shame on HuffPo for giving it free advertising!) A lot of it is retread crap, much of which John spoke about openly. "John Lennon: Jealous and cruel!" screamed the headline. I guess the jackass author is counting on no one remembering Lennon actually wrote a song called "Jealous Guy" and how he often interlaced his lyrics with his struggle to get past his own insecurities. God damn you bastards for picking on a soul so helpless with the truth.

"No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of Tricky Dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope."

-John Lennon

As I've noted before, small minds see a small world and any life can be reduced to tabloid garbage. Take that Jesus guy for example: mouthing off to his elders as a child (to priests, no less!), creating a one man riot in our institutions, rebuking the holy scripture (what do you mean I can't do an eye for an eye??) and died a convicted criminal! Methinks this guy cries out for an expose! (But, of course, the author would only be exposing himself).

P.S. Our God is a jealous God.
