‘So you’ve been doing God’s work, but what’s God working on now? What’s God working on this year? Two and a half million Africans are going to die of AIDS. What’s God working on now? I meet the people who tell me it’s going to take an act of God to stop this plague. Well, I don’t believe that. I think God is waiting for us to act. In fact, I think that God is on his knees to us, waiting for us to turn around this supertanker of indifference, waiting for us to recognise that distance can no longer decide who is our neighbour. We can’t choose our neighbours any more. We can’t choose the benefits of globalisation without some of the responsibilities, and we should remind ourselves that “love thy neighbour” is not advice: it is a command.’ Bono, U2
