The 44-year-old "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer wrote in a blog post Saturday, "I do believe suicide is a sin. Because u may as well have murdered every one who loves u even remotely. Including 'God'. And we all have people who adore us...Even if we think we don't."

She continued, "Its a lie too, suicide. It doesn't solve your problems. It only makes them infinitely, un-countably worse. Its a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Which brings u a whole rake of new karmic problems. Its selfish. And shit. So...Let's not do it."

The Irish singer brought her thoughts full-circle by then defending her Twitter rant by writing, "BUT It's ok to FEEL suicidal. That is most definitely neither a sin nor a sign necessarily, of madness. It's quite normal to feel that way sometimes."

O'Connor attempted suicide in 1999 on her 33rd birthday.
