holy pop quiz!

The October issue of "Catholic Update" is available in the rack at the back of our church. I picked one up this morning. This month's topic is "Creationism: What's a Catholic to Do?" I already had a pretty good idea that the essay would support my belief that God created evolution. The article does mention in passing the Creation Museum in Kentucky that I read about in July.

My friend Bean sent along a quiz he found on the Internet that's perfect for a Sunday. I'll post the correct answers in the comments section once several of you have posted your own guesses.

1) In 1966, the Ku Klux Klan burned Beatles records after who said the group was "more popular than Jesus now"?
2) The Depeche Mode song "Personal Jesus" was inspired by the autobiography "Elvis and Me," written by whom?
3) The Jesus and Mary Chain’s song "Just Like Honey" appears in the closing scenes of what 2003 drama?
4) Before "Jesus Christ Superstar," Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaborated on what other biblically inspired musical?
5) In the short film "The Spirit of Christmas," when Jesus and Santa are kicking the heck out of each other, who reminds the "South Park" kids that "This is the season just to be good to each other"?
6) What Pulitzer-winning novelist and one-time New York mayoral candidate published The Gospel According to the Son in 1997, told from the point of view of Jesus himself?
7) Victor Garber, Jennifer Garner’s dad on "Alias," plays Jesus in what musical film that climaxes on top of the World Trade Center?
8) The shortest verse in the New Testament, John 11:35, is "Jesus wept." Whose tomb made Jesus cry like a little girl?
9) Supreme Court case Morse v. Frederick determined that a school can restrict student speech at a school event that can be seen as promoting drug use. What did Joseph Frederick’s controversial banner say?
10) In 1899, journalist Louis Klopsch came up with the idea for what biblical innovation?
