CHER RIPS NUNS IN NEW SONG, "SISTERS OF MERCY"
A week prior to the release of Chers new CD, "Not Commercial," she was blasted all over the country by the Catholic League for her anti-Catholic song, "Sisters of Mercy." The
Cher described the songs on her new CD, all of which she wrote, as "dark." Indeed, she authorized a warning label on the cover because of the subject matter and colorful language. The CD was released on November 8 and the league struck on November 1.
The song that caught the attention of the Catholic League was "Sisters of Mercy." Allegedly written on the basis of tales told to Cher by her mother (Cher spent a brief time in a Catholic orphanage as an infant), the song attacks the Catholic order of nuns from beginning to end. The Sisters are called "daughters of hell"; "master of pain"; "mothers of shame"; "twisters of truth"; and "daughters of war."
Other lines in the song that refer to the Sisters of Mercy are as follows: "They always weave their web of lies and wrap you in their wicked spell"; "They try to crucify your inner sense and do it in Gods name"; "They use God like hes a weapon but only for a chosen few, then hide behind pious faces like the guilty always do"; "These chicks administer your penance while the devil guards their door," etc.

“Cher”? That name sounds vaguely familiar.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the poetry of Cher.
Oh, wow, you just watch how the Feminazis rise up in rage over Cher attacking these women who have chosen an alternate lifestyle.
[Why Are Catholics Silent?]
In many cases, people shouldn’t be silent in fighting this kind of stuff.
But in this case, speaking out would only help Cher. Her audience is nothing like it was before, she’s a bitter hag who is singlehandedly keeping the plastics industries solvent, and it’s ridiculous to think she’s going to have a hit with this crap.
You can bet she’s got her fingers crossed hoping for the publicity and street cred a protest will bring. If there is no protest, her CD will come and go and all her hard work making this crap will be for nothing.
The only thing dark about Cher is the empty space between her ears.
Yeah that “web of lies” line, she come up with that herself?
This is what happens when the only remaining members of your fan base are fags.
Well the Catholic League evidently isn't.
But if you're asking why there isn't a huge outcry from all quarters, I suspect it's because few give a rip what that irrelevent freak has to say.
Cher is so quite pleased that she found a way to be quasi-relevant once more.
Pathetic. It reads like something written by a 13yo on myspace.
Man, she sounds desperate, a 63 year old Cher that has been in the millions of dollars and sex and song for almost half a century and this is her hip new rebellion?
Catholics don't listen to this Char woman. Those that hear her are so underwhelmed that they turn their attntion to the more exciting fish wrap and cage liners.
It sounds like she’s been spending too much time with Jane Fonda.
Most of whom like to dress up as nuns in their spare time.
As I recall, last year another washed-up has-been Joni Mitchell basically did the same thing.
Chair? Chair who? If I wanted dribbling screeds from a senile half wit I’d tune in her grotesqueness Helen Thomas.
People always go on about evil, nasty nuns. I admit I didn’t go to Catholic school, but in my life I’ve never met a nun I didn’t like. Maybe I like them all because they’re nice to me, and they’re nice to me because I approach them thinking in advance that I’m going to like them.
