Crazy Bishop: Jesus Would Have Sung “Imagine There Is No Heaven”

Noto Bishop Antonio Staglianò, Sicily, praised on OsservatoreRomano.va (September 4), the John-Lennon song “Imagine,” saying that it “poetically reconfigures a new world” which - “without exaggeration”- is in line with the “magisterium of Fratelli tutti.”

An accomplished pop-singer and guitar player (“inventor of Pop Theology”), Staglianò has been singing “Imagine” for Christmas to his diocese because “Jesus too would have sung this song with conviction.”

The problem: The song starts with the words “imagine there’s no heaven” and later adds “and no religion, too.”

But this is no problem for Staglianò because “one must deny a paradise for which one kills and dies” – although there is no word about such a “paradise” in Lennon’s song.

Staglianò trivialises atheism by claiming that it is “a denial of a false God-idol that even Christians should deny (a God for whom to kill and make wars, 'because God wants it').” He should tell this to the millions of Christians murdered by militant atheists.

Interestingly, Staglianò refers in his article five times to Francis which points at the aim of so much craziness: a crazy bishop writes a crazy article in a crazy daily to attract the attention of a likeminded pope, hoping that such highfalutin craziness will promote him to the crazy Roman Curia after twelve years in a provincial mini diocese.

However, since July 2019, Staglianò has found a competitor in Giovanni Mosciatti who established himself as a “rock bishop” by playing the trumpet in a rock band the evening after his induction as Bishop of Imola.

As the story goes, Imagine by the Beatles was not Don Tony’s first musical choice. He preferred a County & Western classic but the parish council convinced him that - given the Church’s recent scandals- his choice in songs would have been a poor choice.

Don Tony preferred... 🥳

Probably an unbeliever like Francis.

They are company men more than willing to say whatever they think they are supposed to say. When JPII was pope, they talked about sexual morals. When BXVI was pope, they spoke of liturgy.

If the next pope is a bull fighter, they will talk about fighting bulls.

I must agree that Imagine is very much in line with the magisterium of Fratelli tutti. At the same time, John Lennon’s philosophy (an atheist can’t properly have a theology) is much more in line with that of Vladimir Lenin than with the Faith.
Ultraviolet
Yup.

I am disgusted when I witness a fellow Catholic (in this case an Italian 🥴 ) try to appear relevant by appealing to a modernist spirit.

Try this, Tony! 😎

Help me out. I thought there was something in canon law which states that once a man is ordained, he has to act in a manner befitting his office
Ultraviolet
Yup. @Casimer Joseph Bogdanski Canon Law covers this in a number of separate points throughout Can. 273-289

Even more basic is that Imagine is a pile of garbage: A cloying, disgusting melody accompanied by brain-dead lyrics.
