Bono: a man of thoughtful action

I am not a huge fan of post 2000 U2 but I am one who appreciates Bono (their lead singer) greatly. The man has been a solid humanitarian for the last decade like no other celebrity.

I have heard he is a Christian, but haven't seen enough said or written by him to be clear on what he believes. What cannot be denied, however, is his compassion for people with AIDS in Africa and his appreciation for what the U.S. has done to help. I'm not endorsing Bono's organization as such, because I just don't know that much about it. Nevertheless I am impressed with this interview. It depicts a thoughtful man of action.

Can you imagine the impact men like Bono and Geoge Cluney would have on the world-wide church if they were giving praise to the Lord while doing all of this to bring glory to the Lord!

There are Christian themes all through U2's music. Many times you would think he is talking about a woman but really he's speaking about Jesus. I really like "Until the End of The World" from Actung Baby where his actually singing as though he were Judas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI6sBdA99c8

The song "Magnificent" off the lateset album is a praise song.He talks about "Love" over and over in it. A lot of thier stuff could be on KLOVE I don't know why it isn't.

That's ironic...many modern "praise and worship" songs are singing about Jesus but you could swear they're talking about their girlfriend...

I don't see what was wrong with what I'd said here that you won't post.

BT,

I don't know what comment you're talking about, I never got it. Post again.

I rarely reject a comment.
