Any Atheist U2 Fans here?
« on: March 23, 2017, 04:59:48 PM »
Hey, guys. Just wanted to know if there are any atheists here who adore U2 like I do. I love U2 and have no problem with their beliefs, I know many of their songs contain Christian themes, such as God and Jesus, and I just wanted to see if there was anyone here like me.

Welcome to the forum! We are a mixed bag...religion-wise, from what I've seen. I'm what I call a "bad" Christian...meaning I drink, and curse, and generally enjoy life, while still having a very deep belief in God. I don't go to church (anymore)...don't read the Bible (anymore), but I still say what I call my "pleases and thank you's" to God each day, and I believe that he listens. So, I'm a bit weird, but mostly happy with it.
Anyway...welcome!

No way! I don't hate God or Jesus or Christianity or religion, that's not it. At all. I have mixed feelings about organized religion, that's all. I try to view their lyrics relating to a relationship between a man and his lover, or a man and himself, or a man and the world around him.

Well put.

Going to church does not make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

I guess I'm somewhere between atheist and agnostic. Not into organised religion and don't really believe in any deity or afterlife, but wouldn't claim to know for sure. And yes, I adore U2. :)

I waiver between atheism and agnosticism, but I'm probably more an apatheist.  Basically, I don't know what happens when you die, but I don't really care either.  All that said, I am a very devoted U2 fan.  I don't hate religion though and know plenty of people who are decent people who value/have faith.  It just was never for me, but I can see the good and the bad.
