Sinead's anti-church rant is bewildering

SINEAD O'Connor's letter provides all the ingredients of a dinner-party debate (Letters, March 4).
Abrasive language: tick. Sweeping generalisation: tick. Shoddy facts: tick. However, I would treat it in the way Ms O'Connor handled a portrait of Pope John Paul II on 'Saturday Night Live' -- shred it.
Ms O'Connor (or is it Mother Bernadette?) claims that the Bishop of Ferns "dictates". This is bewildering nonsense. Even the most obtuse reader could not construe Dr Brennan's "invitation" to parishes to help financially as a dictatorial act.
