What work do you respect?

Because I can't think of anything she did worthy of respect.

If I could like this twice I would. Could someone else like it for me a second time?

Sorry, I liked it on my own so I couldn't like it a second time for you. But in spirit, I was there for you. Big Grin

She made herself look to be the caregiver for the sick and dying by making sure people were sick and dying. Just like Jesus will save you from what he'll do to you if you don't follow him.

RE: Mother Teresa to be Canonized
This could almost be a thread of it's own but the other maddening crap is the so called "miracle" attributed to Mother Fucking Teresa which is a total fraud. An Indian woman named Monica Besra was said to have had her cancer miraculously cured by Mother Teresa. Um no. It's a bunch of shit. Well, here, I'll just post a portion of the article from the Telegraph about Monica Besra's illness


However several groups, including her doctors, have disputed that Mrs Besra was cured by a miracle, claiming instead that her tumour disappeared as a result of medical treatment at the local hospital.
Mrs Besra has said that she visited hospital for treatment and taken prescribed medicines.
In an interview with Time magazine in 2002, Mrs Besra's husband Seiku was among those to challenge the Vatican's claim. "It is much ado about nothing. My wife was cured by the doctors and not by any miracle," he said.
Ranjan Mustafi, a doctor at the local the state-run Balurghat Hospital who treated Mrs Besra, said that the tumour had been caught at an early stage and had "responded to our treatment steadily."


The article also describes how the nuns of Calcutta totally abandoned Mrs Besra after taking her to Rome to plead the miracle case to the pope.

I really have it in for Mother Teresa. Nothing gets me hotter under the collar than this bitch. Angry Too bad there isn't a hell because she would be roasting alongside Hitler for all the pain she inflicted on her fellow human beings, that fucking asshole of a woman. She was ugly too!

Um, yes. All "miracles" are fraud.

Or delusion...

CNN linky

Quote:Pope Francis has recognized a second miracle attributed to Mother Teresa, paving her way to sainthood.
On Thursday, he ratified a miracle attributed to her after her death, the Italian Catholic Bishops' association's official newspaper Avvenire reported.
To qualify a person for sainthood, an attributed miracle must occur after his or her death.
In this case, a Brazilian man with multiple brain tumors was healed after loved ones prayed to Mother Teresa to heal him, Avvenire reported.

While I can respect some of her work, the woman was not holy. See Hitchens if you haven't heard all that.

Also, of the two "miracles", the first was never considered unusual by medical professionals. I'm willing to bet that the second won't hold up either.

I seem to remember hearing or reading somewhere that mother Teresa had lost here faith and was unable to believe any more. Is that right? If so then they are going to make a saint out of an atheist.

I'd rather she was Howitzered.

There is no "I" in "team" but there is a broken and mixed up "me."
