Why is the Vatican obsessed with the Beatles NOW?

I know time moves more slowly in the Catholic Church, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the Vatican has finally come out in support of the music of  those Fab Four mop tops from Liverpool in 2010.

The official Vatican newspaper( L'Osservatore Romano) ran a couple stories over the weekend about the Beatles, noting that it was the 40th anniversary of the band announcing their break-up. The paper said it's true that the Beatles took drugs, were swept up by success, and lived uninhibited lives. It goes on to say that when you listen to their music "all of this is distant and meaningless."

I think it's pretty funny that this is the second time in the last few months that the Vatican has basically run the same story. A few months ago they published a list of the Vatican's favorite records..and I know there were a couple Beatles records on there, along with "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.

I've got some theories behind the Church's motivation with this new Beatle obsession.  They could be trying to get in good with the young kids...the ones who were teens  in 1964.

Or maybe they really enjoyed Lennon/McCartney night on American Idol, but figured admitting that would be akin to letting the moneychangers into the temple.

Or perhaps they thought "Lady Madonna" was about some one near and dear to their hearts. (Hey she's in "Let it Be" too! Mother Mary rocks).

Now I know this one is a long shot, but maybe they're afraid the Beatles really are bigger than Jesus.
