My most amazing religion professor gave me the greatest minute of my entire academic career today:

"You know, U2 is one of the most subtly religious bands out there. Many people do not recognize the hidden religious references in their songs. Take a great song like 40, which refers to Psalm 40. Until The End Of The World is about Judas betraying Jesus. Their latest album has a song called Yahweh. It's about God. You have the lyrics, Take these shoes, Take these hands, Take this mouth... it's about God.. Yahweh! Something else people might not notice is that the last song on each of their albums contains a religious reference. Take their last album, the song Grace. Many people think it's about a girl named Grace... but it isn't! I like U2."
