Jesus Christ has been catching a lot of heat lately over his recent comment claiming that he has become more popular than the Beatles.

Jesus, whose record sales have suffered following his unfortunate remark was quoted as saying:
"I wasn't trying to compare myself to the Beatles or anything like that. I was just saying that what with "The Passion of the Christ", Terri Schaivo, Tom Delay's bullshit and The Pope dying and all, that the hype has just gotten so blown out of control that, like- It's like the whole Beatles phenomenon man, where people are screaming and no ones even listening to the music anymore, dig? I mean, there are people thinking that pee stains in underpasses are graven images of my mother, for my sake!. If I offended anyone, then I sincerely apologize. The Beatles are the greatest band that ever existed and I would never try and compare my musical style with theirs. We're on completely different trips man."

Due to this controversy, Jesus has had to postpone plans for his next world tour, "Rapture Asses Off" which was scheduled to kick of this year in Jesus's hometown of Bethlehem, Israel. No tentative date has been set for the tour to resume.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
