Bono Interview – interessantes Gott Ding

Von Mike habe ich den Link (Danke Mike!) ist sehr lesenswert, vor allem für Fans von U2. aus dem Rolling Stone Magazine.
Ein Ausschnitt:
What do you think of the evangelical movement that we see in the United States now?

Bono: I’m wary of faith outside of actions. I’m wary of religiosity that ignores the wider world. In 2001, only seven percent of evangelicals polled felt it incumbent upon themselves to respond to the AIDS emergency. This appalled me. I asked for meetings with as many church leaders as would have them with me. I used my background in the Scriptures to speak to them about the so-called leprosy of our age and how I felt Christ would respond to it. And they had better get to it quickly, or they would be very much on the other side of what God was doing in the world.
Amazingly, they did respond. I couldn’t believe it. It almost ruined it for me — ‚cause I love giving out about the church and Christianity. But they actually came through: Jesse Helms, you know, publicly repents for the way he thinks about AIDS.
Hier ist das Interview.
