Paul Weller "It's about people using The Bible or The Koran for their own ends. All those prophets were pretty much saying the same thing: love your brother, respect the earth. The way it's all corrupted for man's sake - for material reasons. All things that are the antithesis of what those books are saying. It doesn't mean I'm converted, quite the opposite. I believe in The Blake thing. That God is within if there's any notion of him." (Quote from Weller's publicity materials. Thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 2)
