Top 10 Victims of Religion

victims of (a) crime(s) committed in the name of religion.

inspired by one of John Lennon's murderer's motives that is his infamous bigger than Jesus comment.

The Top Ten

1 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

The founder of the biggest and greatest musical act in history: The Beatles, was successfully assassinated by U.S. American Mormon: Mark David Chapman, one of his motives for the murder was his bigger than Jesus comment back in 1966, even though he already apologized for that remark at the time of its controversy (though considering his atheist (if not, anti-religionist) views, long after that apology, he may have remorse for apologizing about that comment).

He apologized for offending people who misunderstood his statement. John said the Beatles were bigger than Jesus, because of their phenomenal rise to world popularity at the time. He didn't mean they were "better" or that they deserved to be more popular. There was accuracy to his statement, as "God Is dead" was also a well-known saying at the time. I doubt Lennon regretted his apology. - Billyv
