"U2 is definitely (not) a Christian band" : Good Sociology and Kubler-Ross


The cool thing about the Stuff Christians Like website is it has room for tons of items that didn't fit in the book, or that the author came up with after the book
(by the way, Chrisianity Today was not exaggerating in saying the book is "far more accurate sociology than all of the sour-faced 'explaining evangelicalism' books that came out after Bush's re-election")...
..like today's post:

"
Stuff Christians Like #772: Arguing about the Faith of U2," a great post, which takes the argument through Kubler-Ross's 5 Stages of Grief as a grid for the argument.

    So glad that U2 has never been a "Christian band."

    1. Bands like U2 have the best lyrics because they are spiritually seeking and searching for answers. Sometimes labels restrict the audience they are trying to reach or hinder artists from being completely honest in their music and lyrics.
