Sinead Hits Out At Bono

SINEAD O'CONNOR is furious over U2 frontman BONO's public grief following POPE JOHN PAUL II's death earlier this year (03APR05) - particularly as the Irish rocker notoriously ripped up a picture of the pontiff years before his demise.

O'Connor is amazed by Bono's apparent hypocrisy, and admits she is getting "a little sick of Bono's self-importance".

She says, "I wasn't going to say anything until I saw him kissing he rosary beads that the Pope gave him.

"He put those rosary beads on that microphone (stand) the day the Pope died and went on about how great Catholicism is.

"I think he should apologise for that."

The King of England, Enrique VIII, requested to Merciful Pope VIII, the cancellation of the marriage with his legitimate wife, Catherine de Aragón, to marry with Ana Bolena. The Pope refused, faithful to the mandate of Christ: "What God united, he does not separate man" (Mc 10,9). The king, obstinate in his intention of divorce, 1534 forced the separation of the church in England of the comunión with Rome. He declared himself to if same like only and supreme head of the English church.because something of value always to its twin soul

Bono's public show of grief for the passing of our beloved Holy Father was a reflection of what the rest of the Catholic world was feeling. If anyone should apologize for their actions,it should be O'Connor. I guess she is not aware of the fact that most Catholics view her as an annoying, petty little creature.

He never did say how great Cathloism is, just what a great man the pope was and how much he respected him. And isn't it life that as a younger person he might of tore up a picture of the pope, but people do grow and mature. Haven't you Sinaid, or are you the same person you were years ago? If you are that's sad.God BlessRobyn

I dont understand why Sinead is so upset!!! Is it because Bono shows respect to a great man. To me that is one of the attactions to this group and to Bono the respect and kindness and passion that he shows towards the human race.
