One-hit pop singer Sinead O’Connor has been treated like a dignitary on MSNBC by Rachel Maddow and promoted as a moralist by The Huffington Post in her recent and vicious attacks on the Catholic Church. Now, she’s not saying she’s holier than the Pope. She’s saying she’ll shoot him in a “f***in bloodbath.” Let’s hope Sinead hasn’t made any anti-bullying videos.
Irish Central reports her latest ouburst came on Twitter after a poll was carried out on whether Pope Benedict should visit Ireland. She warned that there would be a “f **kin bloodbath”. She tweeted “‘Young people of Ireland I love u’ said Sinead as she pulled the f ***ing trigger.”
`Young People of Ireland I love You” is the phrase made famous by Pope John Paul II when he came to Ireland in 1979. Sinead also wrote; “There’d be a f**kin bloodbath. Me meet the f **ker off the plane myself,” she added.
On her own website, the singer said these profane death threats were a misconstrued attempt at humor:
A newspaper in Ireland chose to report on saturday, as being serious, jocular remarks I made regarding shooting the pope if he comes to Ireland, when that paper knew very well these remarks were in jest. In the course of a conversation as to whether or not the Irish people would accept a visit from the pope… Which frankly, no. They fucking wouldn’t.
In case of any concern. I have no interest in shooting anyone whatsoever and I consider it naughty of the said paper to have put the slant they did on my remarks. I accept my remarks were public, but the context in which they were made was knowingly twisted by the paper to continue the ‘crazy Sinead’ business.
Rest assured.. Neither the pope will come to Ireland nor I will ever contemplate murdering anyone. God will take care of the pope.
There was more blather about how it’s “blasphemous” for the Church to claim to be Christ’s representatives on earth, and then some ridiculous language about how the church should be about love, not mockery. This, just after she hatefully wrote about causing a bloodbath, and then claiming it was only mockery?
The idea was (according to gospels) we’re supposed to love each other and treat people as we want to be treated. One could write volumes on examples of Bishops and or popes behaving in anti-christian fashion, such as the blessing of Mussolini’s bombs in the planes on the runway before they took off to blow up Ethiopia.
I have a foto of the pope blessing the planes.
Let me repeat. Christ never did, doesn’t, and never will, need ‘representatives’. They know very well Christ is the representative. And well they know who He represents. Yet they mock him with their claimings to represent him. While spreading not love but mockery, in so many ways.
