Yes, this plaster-saint was a crook



The pope beatifies Mother Teresa, a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud.

By Christopher Hitchens

In 1996, MT told Ladies Home Journal that she was pleased by the divorce of her friend Princess Diana, because the marriage had so obviously been an unhappy one. This returns us to the medieval corruption of the church, which sold indulgences to the rich while preaching hellfire and continence to the poor.  MT was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction. And she was a friend to the worst of the rich, taking misappropriated money from the atrocious Duvalier family in Haiti (whose rule she praised in return) and from Charles Keating of the Lincoln Savings and Loan. Where did that money, and all the other donations, go? The primitive hospice in Calcutta was as run down when she died as it always had been—she preferred California clinics when she got sick herself—and her order always refused to publish any audit. But we have her own claim that she opened 500 convents in more than a hundred countries, all bearing the name of her own order. Excuse me, but this is modesty and humility?"

The rich world has a poor conscience, and many people liked to alleviate their own unease by sending money to a woman who seemed like an activist for "the poorest of the poor." People do not like to admit that they have been gulled or conned, so a vested interest in the myth was permitted to arise, and a lazy media never bothered to ask any follow-up questions. Many volunteers who went to Calcutta came back abruptly disillusioned by the stern ideology and poverty-loving practice of the "Missionaries of Charity," but they had no audience for their story

Many more people are poor and sick because of the life of MT: Even more will be poor and sick if her example is followed. She was a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud, and a church that officially protects those who violate the innocent has given us another clear sign of where it truly stands on moral and ethical questions.

The lowest priority of every Christian missionary is to be honest.  There are few communities who are worshipers of money and high social status as much as them.  Secondly, abusing the helpless or anyone dependent on their goodwill and care is the hallmark of all Christian missionaries.  In convent schools run by nuns, their treatment of school children amounts to severe emotional abuse. This is something very, very common.  I don't know if they're still as bad, but when I was a kid, I studied in a convent school and these nuns were literally known as terrors.  They wouldn't let anyone smile, they wouldn't let anyone wear nail polish, even if someone wore their hair in a way they liked, they were ordered to open it and make a simple plait and so on.  They were real tyrants.  At the same time, with children of ministers or any high officials they would act so compassion as if they've never known anger.  Real damned hypocrites.  I have absolutely no doubt that this information this of old woman is 100% correct.  The chances that the fame of such a person will entice her to become selfish and greedy are a lot more than the other way round.

Big thief!  preaching to the poor that poverty and its sufferings will help them acquire Salvation but herself enjoying all the perks of life and making sure the charity money she amassed would ensure her to be treated at American hospitals when she's sick.  Excuse me.  What kind of "sainthood" is this?
