I feel sorry for all the people on here who can't listen to Silver and Gold or Cedars of Lebanon or Wake Up Dead Man because they all have naughty words. Or listen to Achtung Baby because it's all about oral sex.

I used to be super religious and also was bothered by cuss words--not any more though. A lot of Christians are. A lot of U2 fans happen to be Christian, some devoutly so. U2's music, for the most part, is clean or it's clean enough that any references to those things seem to go over most people's heads. People don't really notice all the references to oral on AB unless they're listening closely for it, and they might skip the songs with actual cuss words.
Which is fine. That's their prerogative. It just comes with being super religious--many churches teach that Christians should avoid improper things and cussing is considered improper. If people are offended by cussing, then that's their choice and it's not something to make fun of them for.
As far as Kendrick is concerned, I don't know much about his music and I'm not going to judge it. I do know that if the music is good, then I don't really care much about the lyrical content so long as it's not overly negative. His cussing wouldn't stop me from listening.
