a question about u2 bama

ive read in several columns (newsweek, time, forbes, etc.) that our very own u2bama is a vegetarian OR a vegan.

can anyone verify?

Vegetarians eat milk, dairy, eggs

Vegans will not eat dairy products, since they came from an animal.

yes, im very aware of what vegan and vegetarians classify themselves as. myself, im classified as a level five vegan.

being a u2 fan, i understand U2_Alabama has decided to give up meat for the sake of the band. i commend him on his bravery, and good deed for the sake of all the foxes, cows, dogs, and monkeys that are habitualy slaughtered for the sake of human consumption.

You now have to be a vegan to like U2's music?

Again, this is another memo I must have missed

larry is a strict vegan too. it began with the formation of the band in 1968. i read in flanagans book (i think page 245, section a) that larry insisted that anyone who was going to be in his band could not consume meat or any product associated with animals.

i imagine he holds his fans to such high expectations.

well, i read over at www.u2.com/lite that he was one of the few u2 fans that had yet to convert to this sort of lifestyle.

this thread is dedicated to celebrating u2bama's choice to stop killing defenceless animals. in turn, hes saving the rain forrest, preventing world hunger, and reducing gas emissions in 32 of the states that make up america.

well i guess there's no actual flesh in their. or is there?

i hear u2.com is setting up an agency for their agents (obviously i am one of them) to report on animal abuse by fellow fans. these fans would be prevented from purchasing "U2" compact disks, audio tapes, digital video disks and VHS video+audio tapes.
