Well, why not free tickets?

If tickets are free, somebody could come in and ask for 100 tickets for their church and then only show up with 30 people, Iloff said, and 70 people who really wanted to go would be shut out.

"Ten bucks is no big deal and people appreciate the fact that they know they have a seat," and do

Beautiful, Macfistowannabe - those words say it better than anything else we could say.

Bless you, Bono - again.

IF GOD WOULD SEND HIS ANGELS....

I have not seen any quotes by Bono.

I have seen a misrepresentation of the content in the article by a member of the forum though.

Are you just blatantly igonring all of the references as to why they are selling tickets for the event? It has nothing to do with show business.

I think some folks will continue to keep this thread going ad naseum just to try to batter home a point.

I think unless someone has something NEW to add to this thread that's relevant, maybe we should concentrate our efforts elsewhere.

I think that several folks have asked a specific member of the forum direct and relevant questions and deserve the courtesy of a reply.

An answer like "I misread the article the first time through, sorry" would placate a lot of folks.

An answer like "Preachers shouldn't ever charge admission for an event because of ..." could be a springboard for further discussion.

I started a post the other day, but my computer kept freezing up. I didn't even realize it actually finished - twice! Sorry about that!

What I was trying to say was that I agreed with the principle that free tickets would go unused and people that wanted to go would be shut out if they didn't get a ticket.
