Sinead O'Connor interview on eve of papal visit

Sinead O'Connor interview on eve of papal visit

In 1992, Sinead O'Connor famously tore up a picture of Pope John Paul II in protest over the child abuse cover up by the Catholic Church. 18 years later, on the eve of Pope Benedict XVI's UK tour, she talks to Sky News and asks the Pope to admit to a cover up.

What happened to the attempt of Christopher Hitchens to press charges against the pope for cover up child abuse?

You can't do that to foreign leaders: which he technically is. I'm sure Hitchens knew this but went ahead with it to raise awareness.

Chris Hitchens has cancer and is going through chemotherapy. I'm not too sure he's able to do very much right now, poor sod.

Why would anyone suggest that a fictional entity could have a means of causing an illness? You might as well say it is the fault of leprechauns. Oh, and Mr Hitchens has said he won't be calling to something that doesn't exist unless he's delirious or drugged.

So here is a person who stands up for the abused, and against corruption, at incredible personal cost, and all you idiots can think about is how she looks and her music career. Astonishing.
