Infamous 90s singer Sinead O'Connor is pissed at the Catholic Church - and we totally get it! Irish bishops are asking parishioners for $$$$ to compensate children who were sexually abused by priests!
WTF?! Not only is it insulting to think that money will fix anything, but why should members of the church be paying for it?!
Bishop Denis Brennan from Dublin asked members of the church to help in paying £13.8 million in settlements to victims.
In an open letter to several Irish newspapers, O'Conner wrote:
"If Christ was here, he would be burning down the Vatican. And I for one would be helping him. 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, then 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 Christians should do is beyond belief."
