Today in Beatles history

Per usual, it's courtesy of Gibson:
1966, An interview with John Lennon by Maureen Cleave was published in the London Evening Standard. Among Lennon’s frank answers was the statement: “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. We’re more popular then Jesus now… I don’t know which will go first, rock ’n’ roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.” After a storm of controversy later ensued, Lennon was forced to apologize.
