Perhaps, though he did choose to send his daughters to a denominational high school (Presbyterian). That makes some sort of a statment, I think.

Perhaps he sent them there because it was the best school??? I know lots of people that send their kids to Catholic private schools and they aren't Catholic , they did it simply because it was best school.

It's doesn't matter......
Like I said, Bono's spirit and actions clearly show who he is, not some religious mantra or doctrine.
His music shows who he is... what difference does it make as to what label he attaches to himself or his family??
Love is love.

Hey, perhaps. But this is Ireland, where that decision is based on more than just which is the "best school". There are many great schools in Ireland. There's no shortage of choice.
Given the country's difficult history, any choice would be heavily laden with implications and would have been very well thought through in terms of optics, especially by as publicly criticized a figure as Bono. In the end, given the wealth of options, I cannot imagine that he would have placed his children in a school that inculcated religious views that were contrary to his own. Why ever would he?

It might matter to him and his family.

It's not specific to Catholicism. And Bono is not Catholic.
That is right!, Im Christian and and you can be a godfather/mother to children, ...a long time ago i thought it was only a Catholic thing too

He said in an interview that his family (wife & kids) are members of the church of Ireland. He never said anything about himself following a certain religion. As far as his kids are concerned, I'm sure Ali has a word or two to say as well ... in fact, I believe she's the real driving force behind the kid's education, not Bono.

The girl on the right is the one who modelled the painting that I've posted in the previous post.


Belt on neck.

The only thing that a bit disturbing is the wife's costume. I think she probably wanted to pull out a Chinese one, but the design and colour combination just went a bit off. A lady in her age would never wear anything like that, except the mama (the female owner) of the brothel. If that was her initial intention, then she should had put flowers in her hair, and also red handkerchief in her hand wherever she go. ^^



I realy really like this one. Bono has a very very beautiful face, and it just perfect in every angle.

I just wonder how many sunglasses he gave out all through the years?

Thank you for posting these pics! I like the one, where as Bono is holding an parasal over the older lady's head. Very respectful, a true gentleman!
