I think they're reading way to much into things...actions can sometimes be misinterprited, and you can't always go by that. I mean U2 uses their fame, for the good of man kind. The band has done so much to help those who are less fortunate, can;t they see that? And Their songs are even played a churches, and even inspire others to have a faith, i know that after hearing U2, i was inspriered to make future for myself...if it wasn't for u2, (and i'm not saying this just becuase i'm a fan) I don't think i'd be in law school right now, i really made some great changes for my life, trying to get out of the whole i dug for myself, (which was extremly hard for me after my father had died ) but their songs can take your mind to a place where everything seems like it's at your figertips, like all goals are achiveable...and theres a reason we are all here on this earth...it's hard to watch anyone say things about U2 like that. I really acutally wish, (and who wouldn't) to tell Bono himslef, how he changed things for me, or anyone who feels the same. U2 is just one of those bands, that only comes around so often, and is like a becan of light. there will never be another band like them. I have the most respect for U2, and it hurts and angers me to see people assume things that they are not.

Wow. Talk about spouting off half-cocked. I'm all for a little critical distance when evaluating pop culture, but this guy needs some serious education!

Dear Pastor Nutty McCrazytalk: go find a nice Cambridge Companion to Art Studies and look up the following terms: irony, subtext, deconstruction, satire, and imagery. Have a nice cup of tea and learn a little about the band you are slandering.

How ironic would it be if Bono actually turns out to be satan himself and you would be forced to listen to u2 records in hell instead of nsync in heaven...

Jesus saves EVERYONE...

Yeah sure, Bono represents "The Antichrist" ...

That's why Bono and his wife chose names for their children
from the Bible ... ( Jordan, Eve, Elijah, John )

Somebody please ... tell that unbelievable website to wake up !!

Personally, I wouldn't let this dude make you angry. He's obviously a very fringe character and most likely will never change his mind. He probably also considers most Catholics and mainline Protestants to be "false" new-agey Christians who are on a satanic downward spiral anyway. Oh well.

I know what you mean Elessarian. Their interpretive skills are about as sharp as a Q-Tip.

Good point MsMofo!

thats hilarious. the narrator was getting on my nerves though. see, I think I would've taken what the guy said more seriously, but his voice or narrating voice was so annoying that I couldn't take it seriously.

it's all bullcrap. haha bono anti-christ. they have too much time on their hands.

yeah, I didn't intend to get anyone pissed over this, I figured we could all just have a good laugh at his expense and get on with our days...that's all.

2Hearts...that's an excellent letter, I admire you for having the restraint to write a rational piece that actually shows some respect for his intentions at least. it's more than i could do! looking around their site, in the feedback section, it does seem that they respond to everyone's emails eventually. so definitely let us know, i'm curious

and I can agree with what you said on some real angry heavy metal bands. they aint the spawn of satan or anything, but some really angry music can sort of make you less of a happy person. (although I think it helps some people get their anger out, etc) That's why I love u2. I'm not christian, and don't really have a particular faith, but if I do ever feel spiritual, it's through their music. I think it's ironic that they showed a clip of the Rattle and hum performance of Bad, since that version is probably the closest thing I've ever had to a spiritual experience! lol
