Low Standards Indeed


So Mother Teresa is now St. Teresa. Bah.

For those not in the know, who believe all the propaganda about Mother/St. Teresa, take a moment to read this bit by Christopher Hitchens; a man who has probably done more good for the world than she ever did. You can also read over this, which is short and fascinating.

I don’t doubt that Mother Teresa meant well, but that only gets you so far. As near as I can tell, this woman did absolutely nothing what so ever to improve the lives of the poor of India, much less anywhere else in the world. She was a rather low character of questionable morals.

Though, really, that whole above paragraph pretty much also applies to the Catholic Church in general, so I guess she is worthy of being one of their most notable representatives on Earth.
