Mother Teresa to be made a saint
So a poor-hating, woman-hating, money obsessed sociopath is to be held up as a "saintly" person.

She was a woman who took pleasure in the suffering of others. She withheld medical treatment from the dying.

And now she's to be made a saint?

Seems legit.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike

There's christardology for you.

What's actually true is of no consequence - it's what the kat licker church wants you to believe is true that counts.

The dried up old crone went to India -- the most overpopulated place on the planet -- and advocated AGAINST birth control.


It's too bad the wrinkled cunt isn't still alive. Were she, we could beat her to death with the decomposing bloated corpse of a baby that starved to death....

She was also a closeted atheist for most of her life.

There's irony. An atheist saint.

Unsure

Seems legit.

And you based that on what? Hitchens accounts, and the accounts by a handful of researchers?

More about that:

She read the report by the Canadian academics in its original French, and reacted with sadness, offering this first-hand testimonial in response:

"When I read the criticisms of how the patients were cared for in the Home for the Dying, I kept thinking back to my personal experiences there . . . . I know how tenderly and carefully we tended to each of the destitute patients there”how we bathed them, and washed their beds, and fed them and gave them medicine. I know how the entire shelter was thoroughly and regularly cleaned from top to bottom, and each patient was bathed as often as necessary, even if it was multiple times a day . . .

They were considered “untouchables” of society, and yet there we were touching and caring for them as if they were royalty. We truly felt honored to serve them as best we could. Mother Teresa had taught us to care for each one with all the humility, respect, tenderness and love with which we would touch and serve Jesus Christ Himself”reminding us that “whatsoever we do to the least of our brothers,” we do unto Him."

"After hearing from these supporters, I requested interviews with the researchers, and finally obtained one with Dr. Chenard. Her answers to my series of questions were both astonishing and revealing: She confirmed for me that her academic team did not speak to a single patient, medical analyst, associate, or worker of Mother Teresa’s before writing their paper against her; nor did they examine how all her finances were spent; nor did they speak with anyone at the Vatican involved with her sainthood cause, or consult the Vatican’s medical board which certified the miracle attributed to Blessed Teresa.The researchers had not even traveled to Calcutta, whereas even Hitchens, misguided as he was, at least did that.

As it turned out, this “research paper” was nothing but a “review of literature,” a repacking of what others had already written, with the academics putting their own negative spin on it. In other words, an indictment based upon no original research, and the author most frequently cited? Christopher Hitchens. Yet these “findings” made international headlines, and were repeated by many without objection."

Those like Hitchens who wrote negatively about her weren't driven by facts, but more so by their own polemical contempt for her. They weren't concerned about portraying a truthful account of her, but to feed contempt.

And what is ones own description of oneself driven by, facts as well?

Does responding to claims saying, I know we bathed them and gave them medicine mean anything to anyone on earth? What does that inform you off, absolutely nothing. But even that, what does it account for if they did that to the detail she says. Does it mean they heated the water to healthy levels to actually do a good health aid? Were supplies of medicine and distribution of them clean? Were their food supply

We bathed, fed, and gave them medicine says absolutely nothing as point alone. Your quote mining out of your intentions, whatever it may be, too often is like this. It means literally nothing to any defense, point, or even relevance of just existing as an added flavor of text. If any bit of context is given, it's clearly how susan conroy has even more bias to her connection. It's her benefit and adoration of a person that can be seen just as untrustworthy as something done out of "contempt" yet she also had no logic in her response to what constitutes clean.
