Answers:

That was a quote that was taken completely out of context in an American teen magazine called "Datebook". They placed it right on the front page. A pair of Disc Jockeys in Birmingham, Alabama (heart of the Bible belt) picked up on this and intentionally blew the story out of proportion to see if they could shake things up...it worked.

John had given lengthy interview to a respected British magazine. He had been reading deeply about religion and made a comment about much Christianity had declined in Britain. He just said in an offhand way "The Beatles are more popular than Jesus now". He did not mean it literally. He just used the word Beatles as an example. That's why in his apology he made the comment "if I had said that television was more popular than Jesus, I might have gotten away with it".

By printing it out of context, the American teen magazine made it sound as though he was boasting. The Birmingham, Alabama radio station simply threw fuel on the fire.

Hubris.

lennon made his pact with the devil in 1960, just before performing at the litherland town hall ballroom.
after that, he started habitually blaspheming Christianity.
it wasn't the only time he made a statement like that - it was just the incident that got noticed because it was so public.

You'd have to have asked Lennon but I'd guess it was because he was asked, in Britain, about The Beatles popularity and, at the time, in Britain, they were "more popular" that Jesus Christ.

Because there was a good chance they probably were then. This is coming from me a Christian mind you.

Because they were at the time.

He was right

Try to name one popular song written and performed by Jesus Christ

Because then that was true.

Because the Beatles didn't need to enslave, murder, kill and colonize people just to get them
To like their music...unlike Jesus

because, at the time, they were.
