A post in which JJ finally goes loses it (and apologies to Jim Steinmann)

So like I have this poster of U2 on my wall. It's the four of the band posing as a group. It has Adam looking cool as fuck and Bono doing his Bono thing. Adam is wearing a t-shirt which says 'aloha'. The Edge has a black t-shirt on. It says Jonah I:IV. The poster has been on my wall for a month and I only just noticed this bible reference this morning. Which is concerning because 'je suis contre l'eglise'. I thought even though I don't mind that U2 preach a lot about various issues, there's no way the Edge is going to be freaking preaching at me with his 'So they took up Jonah, and threw him into the sea; and the sea ceased its raging' message.

I grabbed a black vivid to scrub it out and just as I was about to strike my conscience woke up, screaming, "stop! wait a minute boy! What do you think you're doin? That's no way to treat an expensive poster of your favourite musicians!' And I said 'God dammit conscience, you know I love you, but you've got a helluva lot to learn about christian music!

Here's the Christian band's Italy Set List
