I know, I know Bono is now promoting AIDS relief by selling candy-apple red iPods, a portion of which will be given to help fight AIDS in Africa. (A bit of advice, if you really care about fighting AIDS, forgo the iPod all-together and donate everything to AIDS relief.
What I’m more interested in discussing now though is the what U2 and Bono are doing to promote Christianity. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about mainstream artists being overtly or covertly Christian and those were quite active posts.
I just readÂ a great paper that’s available on The Thoughtful Christian website entitled “The Music and Message of U2”. It’s an article that’s available for purchase in PDF format for $5. At the request of the author, he’d prefer I not share any details about the article specifically, but it was interesting and worth $5.
Has anyone read this? What are your thoughts on U2? Bono? I’m looking forward to your comments.
