Bono icon?

Does anyone know where I can find a big version of the drawing someone (a magazine?) did of Bono as a Catholic icon? Does it even exist?

Bono is a man a faith and he is a believer, but I don’t think he is a Catholic. There’s a big difference between being a Christian and being a Catholic.
But I might be wrong.

Catholics are considered Christians. The difference is between Protestants and Catholics.

Right, Catholics are Christians.

I'm a Catholic Christian. I was raised Protestant, but I converted sixteen years ago. But we're all Christians, yes.

Yes, Catholics are Christians. I was born and raised in a conservative Catholic family, but it's been a long time since I don't consider myself Catholic.
I'm still a Christian and I'd rather not be related to a church.

Well most religions call them selves Christians (which derives from the word Christ, as in believer/follower of Christ,) but the beliefs are different, I was raised Christian, *Not Catholic* which was rare for being Latin...I was not baptized as an infant, but made the decision later in life to get baptized..There are many differences (some of my friends and some family are Catholic) so I got familiar with the religion..But in the end we are all Gods children

U2's Bono Says He'd 'Like to Be' a Christian
Plus: Pat Robertson speaks again on Bush's faith-based initiatives, tasty Lent, and other stories from around the world.

by Ted Olsen 2/22/01

Bono finally speaks on his faith

Is U2 Christian? (Or, more directly, is it still?) The question is the Christian version of Is Paul dead? and it's been around a lot longer than the rumors McCartney's demise ever were. Lead singer Bono and other members of the band have commented vaguely and enigmatically on the question over the group's recent history, but, as a Dallas Morning News article earlier this month concluded, "When it comes to U2 and God, the answers we'll probably always get are more questions." Not necessarily. Beliefnet finally scored an interview with Bono exclusively on his religious beliefs. But is it the final word on Bono's faith? Probably not. "The most powerful idea that's entered the world in the last few thousand years—the idea of grace—is the reason I would like to be a Christian," he tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis, who has covered the band since 1984. "Though, as I said to [U2 guitarist] The Edge one day, I sometimes feel more like a fan, rather than actually in the band. I can't live up to it. But the reason I would like to is the idea of grace. It's really powerful." Bono also talks about the role of religion in music ("The idea of turning your music into a tool for evangelism is missing the point. Music is the language of the spirit anyway.") The Holy Spirit and religion ("I often wonder if religion is the enemy of God. It's almost like religion is what happens when the Spirit has left the building. God's Spirit moves through us and the world at a pace that can never be constricted by any one religious paradigm.") and AIDS in Africa ("America will be judged by God if, in its plenty, it crosses the road from 23 million people suffering from HIV, the leprosy of the day. What's up on trial here is Christianity itself."

Catholicism is a denomination of Christianity. Its not a separate religion.

All Catholics are Christians, but not all Christians are Catholic.
