I think it’s the defining question for a Christian–’Who was Christ?’ And I don’t think you’re let off easily by saying, ‘A great thinker,’ or ‘A great philosopher,’ because actually, he went around saying he was the messiah. That’s why he was crucified. He was crucified because he said he was the son of God. So he either was the son of God, or he was nuts. Forget rock ‘n’ roll messianic complexes, this is Charlie Manson-type delirium. And I find it hard to accept that all the millions and millions of lives…for two-thousand years have been touched–have felt their lives touched and inspired by a nutter.
My respect for Bono just increased. Watch the entire video to find out what he also believes about prayer, miracles, and the resurrection.
I did a little digging and found out this interview comes from the June 25, 2013 episode of The Meaning of Life, a series on Ireland’s public broadcast network RTE. Hosted by Gay Byrne, it delves into matters of faith and religion with public figures.
Great classic rock groove comin’ atcha from California Breed’s debut single. For those not in the know, California Breed is the the new “supergroup” formed from the fallout of Black Country Communion and consists of Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, and 23-year-old newcomer guitarist Andrew Watt. Stellar vocal performance as always from Mr. Hughes. What a set of pipes for someone in their early sixties.
