Bono has used the status U2 has attained to highlight many things. U2 expressed outrage at the bombings in Ireland that were killing innocent people and he was critical of the USA invasion of Iraq. In a South African context it was Bono and his landmark speech during the Rattle and Hum tour about Bishop Desmond Tutu that convinced many young South Africans that things had to change in their country.
It is amazing that today, Church leaders are seeking Bono on issues that face humanity in our current generation. In this clip Bono explains why he has never felt comfortable in a Church and what Christianilty really means.
