I'm currently feelin: contemplative contemplative
I'm currently hearin: "If God Will Send His Angels"

"You know, God has some really weird kids. I find it hard to be in their company most of the time." --- Bono

"I often wonder if religion is the enemy of God. It's almost like religion is what happens when the Spirit has left the building. God's Spirit moves through us and the world at a pace that can never be constricted by any one religious paradigm. I love that. You know, it says somewhere in the scriptures that the Spirit moves like a wind--no one knows where it's come from or where it's going. The Spirit is described in the Holy Scriptures as much more anarchic than any established religion credits." -- Bono

ahh one of the main reasons I love him!
He's such a genius. Way with words, ya know?
He puts my thoughts into the words I can't find.
And he makes me think of things in a way I hadn't yet.
Very, very nice quotes. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, I was reading it and the first quote struck me, so I was just going to randomly post it to my personal journal. Then upon reading more of it, I found the second one, which epitomized my own personal views on religion which I have been explain to people for years. My basic belief is that all Gods are One, no matter what name you call him/her by, and that no religion can TELL you the proper way to worship your God. A person's relationship with their God is far far too personal to be manipulated by the Church or religion.

Bono's bit about the spirit moving through us at it's own will without out the control of man or religion or anything else, and his hinting at his opposition of organized religion, was just absolutely incredible and so moving for me. Like you said, he so often is able to put my own thoughts and feelings far more eloquently into words than I could. The entire article was exceptional, and I am so glad that I stumbled across it completely by accident. ^_^

I agree. I almost didn't post this to the community, because the article is about 2 years old, so I figured most everybody has already read it. I'm glad a couple people were able to read it and get something good from it. =)
