My daughter asked me today if I knew who the artist is that was singing the song she was listening to. It was Sinead O'Connor. Turns out that this was the second time she had popped up in conversation in as many days. I had just had a discussion with a client the day before when her name came to mind. My client is Catholic and had brought up the controlling manipulation a growing number of Catholics she knows are feeling coming from the hierarchy of their religious system. She brought up the sexual abuse scandal that for years this same hierarchy chose to ignore. It reminded me of Sinead's Saturday Night Live performance that ended up trashing her career. Did the religious system destroy her in an attempt to hide their secret? From what I have always understood, on that very night she was protesting the ongoing refusals of the Catholic Church in her country to face this nightmare of child abuse that was going on and more than likely other problems that arise from systems that attempt to control others through the use of power and fear.
You can watch it here.
