"As a Christian, I feel very shut out from a lot of contemporary Christianity. My understanding in what it means to be a Christian is to, in our own subjective way, recognize Christ as being God, and recognize our shortcomings and our failings, and try and live according to the teachings of Christ as best we can. And what I find so strange is I look at the behavior of so many Christians, and I don't see any aspect of the teachings of Christ represented there. But [I remember] the quote about taking the log out of your own eye before you can see the speck in someone else's eye, so I don't want to get in the position of judging other Christians. I fully admit that a lot of my actions and a lot of things that are still in my life are inconsistent with my beliefs as a Christian. I'm very secular."

“I try to live [my faith] rather than talk about it because there are enough secondhand-car salesmen for God. But I cannot escape my conviction that God is interested in the progress of mankind, individually and collectively.”

"I have a hard time getting my head around the cultural terms. I've never seen why there should be a separation. Much of my life, I've been asked, 'Why doesn't your music proclaim Christ?' I say it does! Does nature scream the name of Christ? Creation has its own proclamation within the majesty of it. I'd like to think our music has the same qualities to it. I always get shifty with that [label,] like there were [supposed to be] compartments in your life. When I read Scripture, there are no compartments to your life."

"An ambassador? I'm a great embarrassor for Ireland," Bono joked, "As for the politics and the music, there's no difference. When Elvis walked on stage -– a white man singing with a black man's voice, moving his hips in a dangerous way -– that was politics. The Clash. They were completely political. Mick Jones [who was awarded the Best Producer Award] to have him on the stage and still sane and sound of mind, with a sense of humour and a certain clarity that he has. The Clash were the absolute greatest band for us. They were the inspiration. "But politics y'know? It's important. Very, very important, but it starts with hardness of heart, which is the core of a lot of the world's problems, that can be changed by music."

There's a real deal. A real deal, between us and our audience," he explained, "Which is we don't have to worry about where our kids are going to school, paying a hospital bill, paying the mortgage, in return we don't make a crap album. Two crap albums and you're out. That's our deal with our audience".

“I’m fine with whatever religion you want to have, but it can’t tell anybody it’s OK to kill people, and it can’t abuse children systematically for God knows how many years.. If I was in a club, and I found out that there had been generations of people abusing children, and then that club was covering that up, I would quit the club. And I wouldn’t give them any more money. Religion seems to me to be at the base of all wars. I’ve nothing against defending yourself, but I don’t think, spiritually speaking, that there’s any conception of God that should be telling you to be violent. It seems to me that no one’s got Christ more wrong than the Christians.” ****RIP TOM PETTY 1950-2017 I HOPE GOD UNDERSTANDS YOU AND ADMITS YOU INTO HIS HEAVEN*****

Here's what I told my son Speck, who's always fighting everybody and fighting himself. I know you consider yourself a dangerous young man but I'm a dangerous old man. A dangerous old man can use anger to his advantage. He's cagier and smarter. He knows what he's doing. A young man just has outbursts.

Painting is harder on me than being onstage. I stand 8 to 10 hours a day. I used to consider it a hobby but now I don't. It's hard to be taken seriously because I'll always be considered a celebrity painter. Being a rock star has been a pain in the ass all around. *****NOTE - some of his paintings are featured on his albums' cover art *****
