wow. That is a VERY thought-provoking quote. Where did you get it? Is it recent?

Here's the link. It's under the "U2 speeches and other text" - "Bono speaks about God" section:

http://www.ecst.csuchico.edu/~edge/

It's an interview from 1993.

I love this quote from Bono...

"I'm sure of one thing," he replies. "Like we say on Zooropa, 'There's
nothing certain/ That's for certain. But if I was certain of anything, I'm
certain that you can't pin our actions, the actions of man in places like
Bosnia, on God. THAT is our final arrogance, that we blame God for our own
state. Most people think we got kicked out of the Garden of Eden. I'm not
so sure. I think we kicked God out of it. And what I don't see is evidence
of God in man. There is enough food, for example, but we just won't share
it. We always see this planet as belonging to God--I think it belongs to us.
We probably stole it from God. But you can try and give bits of it back in
any way you can."


There's a nice dose of reality! Compliments of Bono.

props to Bono!

' I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name. . .'

Love is...cold steel/Fingers too numb to feel/Squeeze the handle/Blow out the candle
Love is blindness.../A little death/Without mourning/No call/And no warning...
