A God and Church in the image and likeness of Sinead

Oh dear...

In a newspaper column on Sunday, Sinead O’Connor called for the formation of a new Catholic church.

"We need a church that honors the sacraments and does not dictate who God can love or not love," she said.

"If we stick to the sacraments and honor them fully, the rest will follow."

Her comments come after her recent announcement of the end of her third marriage to Steve Cooney (57) after eight months.

The 45-year-old had married her most recent husband on tour in Europe last summer.
The mother of four has often spoke about suffering from bipolar disorder.

Her new album "Home" is set to be released in June. The singer-songwriter is preparing for a tour of the UK in Ireland over the summer months.
Shall we start by honoring (sic) the Sacrament of marriage then Sinead?

And the madness continues

In March I posted that Celtic manager Neil Lennon was Living under intolerable pressure.

This morning brings the frankly unbelievable news that mail bombs have been sent to Lennon, Paul McBride QC (a lawyer used by Celtic FC and Lennon), and Labour politician Trish Godman (a Celtic fan). The story is all over the British media but here's just one link from the BBC.

It's probably worth remembering that Lennon stopped playing for his country because of death threats. He has had several death threats since and has been attacked in the street in Glasgow. In January this year he had bullets sent to him in the post - as did two other Celtic players (both Catholics from the bastard statelet of Northern Ireland).

Why is this happening? Because he is an uppity taig, a fenian who doesn't know his place and challenges the establishment that's why.

It's enough to make you despair.
