The Pope may have condemned rock music as “anti-religion” but the Church of England has announced it is to use the songs of a global supergroup in an effort to boost congregations.

The first “U2-charist” in England, an adapted Holy Communion service that uses the Irish rock group’s best-selling songs in place of hymns, is to be staged at a Lincoln church in May.

Ah yes, this story has been developing over the years and the same thing has been done a few times. The C of E has obviously sunk low enough to need it too.

I know, let’s make God’s word more palatable by having a bunch of hard drinking Irishmen spew it.

  1. Why can’t we all just sing those old songs that Fanny Crosby and Charles Wesley wrote and be happy? If they were good enough for Jesus, they should be good enough for us.

  2. What scary thought! I think I’m the only hard drinking irishman that gets to do church stuff around here ;-)
