actually it's golden

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 11, 2009

Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has demanded that Pope Benedict XVI resign because of his “contemptible silence” on the sex-abuse scandal.

Silence isn’t always contemptible, Sinead. Try it. 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Sinead doesn't dislike all popes - just the ones whose name starts with J or B. Oh - and also A,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y and Z. After all popes whose name start with any of these letters are the real enemy.

    She's been out of the news so long that I almost forgot how to pronounce her first name. Maybe she just wanted to give our Holy Father a piece of her mind for Christmas, though she should be careful. I don't think she has many pieces left.

    This is the result when the irrelevent try to become important. Demands made that make little sense.

    Sounds like Ms. O'Connor has a need to feel important. That's the only reason celebs make outlandish statements like this.
