I saw this special, too, and thought the same thing when they said that (i.e.
 "U2 would never be like that..." LOL)

Gee, Lilith. I get the impression that you found Mr. Bell's ramblings, for
 the most part, incoherent and nonsensical. *whew!* I thought maybe I just
 wasn't paying close enough attention!!!

<I'm curious if by this time anyone gives a rat's ass over this one-sided

<their embrace of cowboy hats and country-music references during the

Nah...I've been skipping over these long-winded posts for about a week now
 (yes, I'm STILL behind on my digests!)

many others wrote stuff Re: repressing their homosexuality. Here's my 2:
I am NOT a homophobe, and in fact one of the reasons I respect U2 is THEIR
 respect for diversity, for people of all races, creeds, religious background,
 sexual preference, etc., etc... HOWEVER to even HINT at a SPECULATION that
 these guys are repressed homosexuals is ludicrous!!! If they were brothers by
 blood, would anyone question them hugging and leaning on one another, etc??
 NO...these guys are like FAMILY, and it seems to me they are all passionate,
 affectionate men. There is no repression here...and no homosexuality either.
 And NO...it would not matter to me even if they were!

What more in the name of Love???
