I'm confused, this is to justify why he deserves to be knighted?

^ Yes, this is to justify why he should accept the honor.

ok.why he should accept. The answers given so far seem to point to why it should be offered.

I think there are several instances of him saying (or one of the other band members saying he has said) he'd have lunch with the devil. There's at least one quote from this Q & A with Bono as found in the New York Times:

I think it was the New York Times a short while back that published a nice graphic chart of Bono's humanitarian network. It shows all the details you need on ONE, DATA, EDUN and RED. Try google searching for it.

There was an interview on youtube from the Elevation tour where he was riding in a limo with George Steph???? The guy from Much Music in Canada. He said something during that about sleeping with the devil.

DATA is primarily a lobby organization. They do research and then lobby at Congress and the White House and other places around the world. You can actually get internships there in DC if you're studying international law or international development studies (it was an option for a friend of mine).

ONE came later on and I've always assumed Bono is a founding member and DATA a founding organization. However, on their site, there is a huge list of participating organizations, so DATA is one of many. I don't think ONE is a lobby organization, per se. It's more of an awareness/social justice campaign. It's geared towards people like us who aren't actually lobbyist in Washington, but still matter when it comes to pushing these issues.

I'm trying to find that graphic chart but I can't find it... I am pretty sure I saved it!
