1. During a recent North Carolina campaign rally, U.S. President Donald Trump spoke of an encounter with a supporter who said the commender-in-chief is the most famous person on Earth. Pres, Trump countered with the observation that Jesus Christ is more famous. Whatever you think of Pres. Trump &/or Jesus Christ (and whether the encounter in question actually occurred), do you believe the former is correct about the latter?
2. Pres. Trump's aforemention comment reminded me of the remark made by John Lennon in a 1966 interview wherein he posited that his band at the time, The Beatles, were more popular than Jesus Christ and that the the faith surrounding him would fade. If you watch the clip accompanying this question or know of the history of the event, do you beileve Lennon adequately addresed the controversey he caused with how he said he misspoke?
I wasn't aware of the comment nor controversey and didn't watch the video.
3. Thinking of a Beatle saying his band is more famous than Jesus Christ reminded me of country music artist Joe Diffe singing of a couple whose love is "Bigger Than The Beatles," One would rightly hope that someone's significant other is more important than any muscians whose work s/he enjoys, but do you think any musical act will ever again be famous as The Beatles were during their time together?
I'm unfamiliar wtih The Beatles' fame.
I believe other musicians have become at least famous as The Beatles (and I may name at least one in a coment).
4. In the case of Pres. Trump deferring to Jesus Christ as the world's most famous person, the commander in chief seems to portray fame as a good thing (for Christ, if not necessarily the president). In the song linked with this question wih David Bowie, fame is given a more nuanced, sometimes negative *ssessment. *ssuming none of us Tellwutters has ever been famous on the level of a president, Lennon, or Bowie, how comfortable do you think you'd be with that level of notoriety?
Not at all
My answer may depend on why I'd be famous,
5. Getting back to Jesus Christ, do you think he would have thought of himself as famous during his earthly time living, dying, and resurrecting in and ascending from the Middle East?
I'd rather not expend mental energy pondering that.
