I think its that new "Bono on Bono" or " Bono in Conversation" book. Whatever its called. Depends which country you live in as to the title of the book.

Please be aware, nickypiemcg, that there are minors visiting this website as well, and such langauge really isn't appropriate.

Oh, we've got our fundamentalists too, believe me.

Anyway, the quote you started the thread with just says 'fundamentalists,' not 'fundamentalist Christians.' Granted, Bono probably doesn't encounter many such Jews, but I see no reason to assume he wouldn't have the same reaction to them. They also typically dwell on the 'most obvious' sins of others while ignoring their own obligations as Jews to tikkun olam, the duty of reducing suffering and injustice.

I guess one could split hairs over whether the word can technically apply to non-Christians. But it seems pretty clear to me that Bono's using it to describe a type of hypocrisy that's endemic to organized religion generally, not a specifically Christian phemonenon. Fundamentalist Christians just happen to be more numerous and influential...here in the West, anyway.

If we could simply acknowledge (1) sin as sin and (2) we are all sinners, it would be a lot easier to work on the underlying problems together.
We're not all sinners. I'm not a sinner. If one does not believe in the Catholic church, one would not recognize his or herself as a sinner. Some people don't believe in it.

Not believing you are a sinner and not being a sinner are two separate things.....

I don't necessarily believe in the Catholic church, but I consider myself a sinner.

I don't believe in any church. I'm of no religion. I'm agnostic. But I really don't like the idea of 'sinning' in a religious sense. If I kill someone, perhaps I've sinned. But if I make love to someone I love, I refuse to acknowledge that as a sin, as if I've done something wrong. And the way I'm understanding it, in the religious sense, most everything we do that we get any enjoyment out of, is sin. Which I think is silly.
