Theology

The Rev. Sinead O’Connor is probably the world’s most famous indie priest.  Her next album, Theology, is finally hitting the shelves this spring.  If you have not heard the two songs she put on her website, check them out:

    Thanks for this heads up. So, what is her current position, really? Does anyone know? There was her profession for the Rastafarian faith some time ago. She seems so spiritually confused sometimes, its hard to put a finger on her…

  2. John Says:

    Dunno – as you say, she is fast moving! If anyone knows, I would be most interested.

  3. Tim Cravens Says:

    But the real question is this — since she was ordained as an indie priest (thus leaving an indelible mark on her soul, regardless of later spiritual adventures), does buying her cd count toward tithing? 😉

  4. Alexis Says:

    I seem to recall that she somewhere renounced her ordination? I might be either remembering incorrectly, or misunderstanding. There is/has been a great deal of controversy surrounding the bishop who ordained her – so perhaps this was truly bad publicity (i.e. the adage that all publicity is good publicity)?

    Hmm does buying her CD count as tithing – grin – well if the CD is 10% of your daily wage when you buy it, and the whole proceeds of said item go to charity . . . but then you are getting something in return. . . the question then becomes is the CD “dedicated” to God? If then, well that’s alright no? 🙂

  5. Will Says:

    Great reply, Alexis! I hereby dedicate my bank account to God. Please contribute accordingly. Ha!

    Take care!

  6. John Says:

    Earn your bread by working quietly, young man! 🙂

    I promise to post later – very busy day today!

  7. The Liberal Rite Says:

    With Sinead, the vulnerability and mutability are the point. She has an unusual honesty to instinct and the inspiration of the moment.

    As far as I know, she hasn’t renounced her ordination, but is on “a mission to rescue God from religion.”
