Video: U2’s Bono Says Jesus Was Either the Son of God or A Nut Case

Lead singer opens up about his faith and life

It may surprise some U2 fans, but Bono is a practicing Christian. He was interviewed in March 2014 about his faith and its impact on his life. Bono told the interviewer that he thinks Jesus either had to either be a nut case or really the Son of God—and he believes the latter. Bono also shared that he prays to seek and know the will of God and that his family prays together. In an interview posted in The Washington Times in fall of 2014 Bono said he believes "we’ve moved out of the realm of Karma (or justice) into one of Grace."
