Grace not Karma

Bono gives an explicit confession of being saved by Grace, not Karma - the way he deals with the opening question, superb.
"The interviewer, Mr. Assayas, begins by asking Bono, Doesn't he think "appalling things" happen when people become religious? Bono counters, "It's a mind-blowing concept that the God who created the Universe might be looking for company, a real relationship with people, but the thing that keeps me on my knees is the difference between Grace and Karma.""

    Which means you will probably know my friend Jonny Richards...?
