Sinead O’Connor speaks out on abuse.

On March 3, 2010, in Child Abuse, by Paddy

Please allow me to express my astonishment upon reading the statement made on the evening of March 1st by the bishop of Ferns, Denis Brennan.

His statement attempts to dictate to us in the same way the inquisition did, how Christians should behave. Saying directly that it would be anti-christian of us to feel the church should pay its own bills for its own abuse with its own billions which it throttled from our grandparents, whom they also abused, physically, emotionally, psychologically and sexually.

Evidence of sexual abuse by clergy, according to the Murphy report, can be traced as far back as 320 a.d. and the first treatment centres for paedophile priests were created in 1940, named servants of the Paracletes. These centres were opened all over the world.

I would like to know exactly whose idea this plan was, and from where were issued the instructions or permission to make such a statement.

The statement and its attempted manipulation of good catholic people could be described as unbelievable, stupid, comical. But in my opinion the only word that does it justice is evil.

How long do they expect us to restrain ourselves?

We have put up with this bull dung for hundreds of years.

A true Christian is someone who, in any given situation is supposed to ask themselves what would Jesus do, and try to do that.

How an organisation which has acted decade after decade only to protect its business interests above the interests of children, can feel it has the right to dictate to us what christian should do is beyond belief.

From the Pope on down through the Vatican and through therefore, the lower echelons, the whole organisation in my belief is in fact utterly anti-christian. And evil. As proven by centuries of torture, bloodshed, burnings, terrorism, and coverings up of “the worst crime” known to man – child abuse.

And if Jesus Christ is to be seen in the vulnerable of this world then all they have done is crucify the man over and over and over again.

If Christ was here, he would be burning down the Vatican. And I for one would be helping him.

Sinead O’Connor.

    Hanora, “See the following websites”………is missing from the post. Paddy

    One voice may be relevant on the day for the thousands out there, but when that one voice then moves on to the next ‘project’ let’s not forget the ‘voices’ left in the wake of the passing ship in the night! Amazing how the media junkies jump on the bandwagon and these junkies are the same people who have been screwing us behind the scenes! All you need is the info. from the CRO on who’s who in the survivor groups. Saturday, a meeting was held in Buswells Hotel in Dublin with one group leader scrabbling for members to justify the thousands he receives, the thousands he receives from the DOH on an annual basis. It’s already in the public domain the disparity between the auditors and the accountants of events for other groups PURPORTED to represent you and I. Time to face these criminals down in our midst along with the church and the state. You have been warned and unless this doesn’t get past the moderator it’s been posted on other websites and marked down for posterity. Hanora Brennan. 056 7758731 if you need any further clarification. Today, Monday is the day that pleadings are to be lodged in the courts throughout the land here and in England regarding the compounded abuse of survivors by so called ‘survivors’ .i.e. predators – worse than the originals as they learned well. See the following websites .. ‘ s/

    @ Robert: whatever about Jesus Christ threatening to demolish the Roman Empire in three days, the SAME Roman mob are still in business today, 2000 years on.

    I don’t know if JC ever existed, cos I wasn’t alive 2000 years ago. All I know is Rome – aka The Vatican – is still in existence, happily ensconced in its little Gated Community… of celibate paedophiles…

    “The statement and its attempted manipulation of good Catholic people could be described as unbelievable and stupid.”

    The above excerpt is taken directly from the letter written by Sinead O’Connor in the Irish Independent. Note, the word “comical” added in Paddy’s version of it above (not saying you are culpable, Paddy) does not appear in the Indo’s official version of Sinead’s letter.

    So anyway. The point I want to make here is that Sinead’s reference to “Good Catholics” is rather puzzling – to me, at any rate. What is a “Good Catholic”? Shouldn’t she have used the term NORMAL human being?

  6. robert says:

    I wonder if the church reads out in their masses what Jesus did when he got angry with the religious of his day, in three days i will destroy this temple and rebuild it mmmmm “IN THREE DAYS” OOPS IT WAS NOT THE VATICAN WAS IT? eh someone spilt a load of bull that this stinks somewhat.
    In fact all the other religious buildings are full too of the same bull, please do not let the bull in your home it smells very badly. leave him in the field he can help your garden grow, very well too.
    WHO BUILT THE VATICAN? now that’s a good question,
    to start finding the truth. THREE DAYS?

  7. Andrew says:

    Hard hitting and powerful interview. Sinead is very articulate on this subject – she knows her stuff. I believe there are many like her out there, many that feel as disgusted as she does with the machinations of the bishops here and in Rome. Well done Sinead.

    SINEAD

    The all embracing bond of church state

    in 1996 CARDINAL DALY SAID ‘THE BAD IMAGE GIVEN TO THE CHRISTIAN BROTHERS BY THE MEDIA IS UNJUST AND UNFAIR’

    Just how strong this bond is can be summed up as all embracing After the deal with CORI who pops up at a big dinner given by the Christian brothers THE MINISTER FOR EDUCATION AND THE TAOISEACH BERTIE AHERN
    Who would later opens a 40million Euro development for them

    I see Bertie won 10 grand this week money to money, that works out more then they put in to the deal for survivors
    MONEY MONEY MONEY IN A RICH MANS WORLD.

    “This is not just about us, this is about a Government that has for decades looked the other way. Setting up an old boys network within an old boys network… ”

    Yes, Barry. But lest we forget, it was (mostly) our own parents and grandparents and great-grandparents who elected to keep this same FF-RC government in power for so long – and they are still in power!

    Yes, I know, most Irish people don’t want to look at that FACT, but it is a FACT and not something I, personally, dreamed up…

    Portia wrote: “Yes the Vatican church is actually a cult which sacrifices human children to their god and the younger the better.”

    Never a truer word!

    “Down through the ages, we unwitting members of this cult have been brainwashed to believe that every word that left the lips of these men of god was true and we sheep had to obey without question.”

    The “unwitting members” you speak about, Portia, were/are CHILDREN. Think about that for a second…

    “We had no choice in the matter either.”

    Yes, that’s because you were just CHILDREN of parents who were/are psychologically retarded as a result of their own Roman Catholic childhood indoctrination. So, grieve your parents loss of identity; when you begin to do that, you start to retrieve your own unique individuality…

    “This Vatican church destroyed all that was feminine and sacred in Ireland and worldwide as they murdered millions of people of the light.”

    Portia, don’t you know that ALL organised religion is schizoid, that is, male-dominated? If you don’t know that by now, then your own psyche needs re-tuning…

    “The Roman Cult has never been the legitimate leadership of the Catholic Church.”

    The Roman Cult IS the Catholic Church – FFS!

    “A brutal and bloody cult — involving child sacrifice, burning people alive (since 11th Century CE), demonic worship and absolute celibacy of its lowest priests — its epicentre for such evil being the giant Phrygianum atop Vatican Hill since the 2nd Century BCE.””

    So, isn’t it about time the Irish people woke up fromm their centuries-old Roman Catholic slumber?

  11. Martha says:

    “If Christ was here, he would be burning down the Vatican. And I for one would be helping him.”

    So says Sinead O’Connor.

    He isn’t. They – the Roman Catholic Church -tortured him to death, for his angry criticisms of their modus vivendi.

    So, Sinead, what are you going to do about the fact that Rome still rules Ireland? You’re still alive, JC is long dead, so what are YOU doing to change The System?

    No offence Sinead; love your voice and some of your music, but…

  12. Portia says:

    Ah brilliant Sinead.

    Yes the Vatican church is actually a cult which sacrifices human children to their god and the younger the better.

    Down through the ages, we unwitting members of this cult have been brainwashed to believe that every word that left the lips of these men of god was true and we sheep had to obey without question.

    We had no choice in the matter either.

    This Vatican church destroyed all that was feminine and sacred in Ireland and worldwide as they murdered millions of people of the light.

    “The Roman Cult has never been the legitimate leadership of the Catholic Church.
