I greatly admire Bono even though politically, we are very different. Maybe that's because I love most of his spiritual views.

It's tough for me to separate an artist from their personal views when those views seep into the music. I don't seek out music that supports my views but at the same time I can't even think of an example where I like the music but don't like the personal/political views of the artist. I think we all naturally gravitate towards music/art that reflects our own views, either consciously or unconsciously. U2 are different in that they have strong views spiritually and politically which don't always fit into our neat little political/spiritual boxes here in the US so you get a more mixed audience. I do not, however, change my views because someone whose art I like has influenced me that way although I hope I am open to re-examining my beliefs all the time.
