All praise be unto Bono: Pensacola church hosts U2-themed service
Well, we knew it would come to this: A church in Pensacola has officially deemed Bono worthy of worship.
"It's definitely something different," the Rev. Geoffrey Lentz, associate minister at the church, told the Pensacola News-Journal. "But U2's music is so deeply spiritual that I think the corporate worship setting is the perfect place for it."
It might not surprise you to learn that this isn't the first time a church has deified the Irish rock gods. U2charists have been held across the globe since 2003, and their often religious-themed music has been sermon fodder for even longer.
Any of you guys ever been to a U2charist? Did the almighty power of Bono lift and enlighten you? If so, then please testify in the comments, my brothers and sisters.
