For those who are still telling me Bono isn’t a Christian…

Recently I spoke in church about the "ministry" of U2 through their music and through their involvement in aid for Africa. Afterward, I heard from someone arguing the same thing I've heard for decades... that Bono may use a lot of religious references, but he's really just a rock star who's sold out for the love of money.Frankly, I'm not very interested in arguments about the state of Bono's soul.
