by Moody Adams “The Beatles meteoric rise, unprecedented in popular culture and unrivaled nearly four decades after the band broke up, is at least partly explained, says a new book, by a pact John Lennon made with the Devil,” writes WorldNetDaily.
In "The Lennon Prophecy," author Joseph Niezgoda reveals that Lennon himself confided in his friend Tony Sheridan that he made a deal with the Devil.
Lennon was obsessed with the occult, magic, numerology and being bigger than Elvis Presley,
He was thrown out of religious chorus for substituting obscene words in hymns.
Lennon once boated that his band was more famous than Jesus Christ.
Lennon’s anti-Christ activities included blasphemous cartoons, parodied hymns, dressing as Jesus while mocking Him, hanging a life-size effigy of Jesus from his balcony and throwing water-filled condoms at Christians who looked at it.
Niezgoda devotes a chapter to documented historical accounts of pacts with Satan – including the case of Johann Faust, who gained great fame after making a 20 year pact with Satan. Both he and Lennon died 20 years after their pact.
Niezgoda cites the unprecedented "mania" that surrounded the Beatles as evidence of something supernatural about their career. Nothing before or since has come close to equaling the frenzy surrounding them, the 400,000 who gather outside their hotel to catch a glimpse of them in Australia, not the 20 number one hits in six years.
