Sinead O’Connor Shreds Picture of Pope Benedict XVI, Everyone Cheers

Pope Benedict steps down, the Irish singer doesn’t miss a beat

Sinead O’Connor has been vindicated. The news of Pope Benedict XVI stepping down as head of the Vatican left a world stunned, but according to reports, Sinead O’Connor didn’t miss a beat.

Sinead O’Connor, Pope Benedict XVIAt a recent concert, she appeared on stage with an 8 x 10 glossy of Pope Benedict, and before uttering a word, silently ripped the photo to shreds. This time the crowd roared in defense of her actions.

No longer was the popular Irish singer a villain in the eyes of her fellow Catholics, but a heroine for having the courage and conviction to stand up for a cause that remained under the covers of the Catholic four-poster bed for way too long.

After the cheers subsided, O’Connor simply said, “See? I told you so,” and promptly left the stage.

The crowd erupted in chants of “War, War, War,” urging the embattled singer to come back on stage and sing the Bob Marley song that brought her infamy back in 1992.

As many will remember, it was during a live taping of Saturday Night Live in 1992, when O’Connor tore up a photograph of then-Pope John Paul II while calling him evil, immediately after singing the War song and replacing the word ‘racism’ with ‘child abuse.’

At this recent appearance, however, O’Connor obliged willingly, and immediately started singing the song. This time, instead of jeers, her song, when finished, was met with thunderous applause and cheers. Some attendees actually sang along.

With that, the ordained Catholic priest of the Irish Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church blessed the crowd, and assured everyone that, although she thinks she’d make a fine Pope, she’s pretty sure her name has not made the final cut at the Conclave. She then left the stage a second time, fully vindicated.
