    Agree? Yes No

    Default Interview with U2's EDGE

    Just read this:

    http://music.yahoo.com/read/interview/42710164

    Interesting, but also what the f*&k are these "U2charist" church services? Anyone ever hear of this?

    Thanks for the link. I knew U2 was big, but this crossover to religion is news to me.

    Cheers.

    I'm not surprised. After all, the members of U2 are Christian, although I think it's more of a progressive Christianity which is centered around social issues. And that's okay with me.

    You can even hear hints of their spiritual beliefs, in songs like "I Still Haven't Found What I'm looking For"

    Guess you're right. I am not sure I caught much of that watching "Rattle and Hum" though. That was a long time ago so maybe the themes in their music have changed.

    as for religious leanings, lyrics since the beginning have hinted, and at times directly spoken to (at least) Bono's faith.

    At the very least, Bono, Edge, and Lary Mullen, Jr. are on record as being Christians. The other one, Adam Clayton, has said he believes in a higher power, but feels no need to pray.

    Again, as I said, their Christian beliefs are more on the liberal side; that is, very much grounded in social activism, tending to what was referred to in Mark 26 as "the least of these" ... that sort of thing.

    Here are some interesting articles:

    http://www.tmtm.com/sides/u2.html
    http://www.worldmagblog.com/blog/archives/010782.html

    And of course, it's laughable to see some of these closed minded people on the second website, post comments attacking Bono and U2 for not being "christian enough" ... i.e., Bono's not Christian because he supposedly supports gay rights and is pro-choice. As though that's what's required to be a Christian.

    Comments like that are one of the reasons I dislike using labels like "Christian" (or for that metter, "Atheist" or "Pagan" or "Muslim"), and undoubtedly why the members of U2 (well, the three of them anyway) haven't been more public about their faith then they have. It's easy for people to get the wrong ideas.

    Synthpopalooza,
    speaking of being outspoken about religious beliefs, and not even remotely electronic, other than some ambient acoustic loops, but have you heard SixteenHorsepower, or WovenHand?
