Bono Is God

Episcopal churches across the country are introducing a communion service based on the music of U2.


The U2Charist (“U2” and “Eucharist,” get it?) mixes songs by the Irish band into a church service. And it features a slide show!!!

Okay, NOW I’m interested. ‘Cause I f**kin’ LOVE a good slideshow, dammit!

What the heck goes on at these things, you ask? Well, part of the service features images from historical civil rights campaigners such as Ghandi, Martin Luther King, and Rosa Parks are shown to the sounds of "Pride (In the Name Of Love)."

The service was spawned from the mind of a one Reverend Paige Blair, an Episcopal priest in York Harbor, Maine, who held the first U2Charist at her church back in 2005 (see this chick was way ahead of time, homie). There’s even a chance to make a donation for Bono's campaign to eradicate extreme poverty and global AIDS. The service has been held in 150 churches across 15 U.S. states.

"Are we worshiping Bono? Absolutely not,” clarified Blair. “No more so than we worship Martin Luther when we sing 'A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.'"

Um, okay, now I’m scared.
