    The late Mother Teresa was known as a person who cared for the poor in Calcutta,India.  Her order established centers and hospitals to care for the indigent of Calcutta.  However, new revelations revealed that Mother Teresa purposely let the poor suffer, believing that after all, suffering would bring them closer to God

    More allegations indicated that Mother Teresa withheld proper and advanced medical care to the poor, oftentimes leaving them in undesirable and unhygienic conditions.  It was further purported that there were monies to care for the poor but these monies were NEVER allocated to such.   How do YOU feel about the new relevations regarding Mother Teresa?

      I don't see any reason to condemn a dead woman who spent her entire life among the poor. There is no perfection on earth. We are all shades of good and bad. Not having spent time assisting in service to the poor in Calcutta, I am not inclined to  believe I could possibly understand their needs or the mindset of a person who found themselves surrounded by gross poverty that she could never hope to find a way to alleviate. I applaud her efforts and can't begrudge her for her failings. Better to have tried and failed, than to not have tried. I'm sure she did more good than harm. It is easy to judge, but better to act.

    The allegations are nothing new. Christopher Hitchens began critically reporting on her in 1994.  Some links if you're interested

      Thank you calculus-geometry.   So many people were so in awe of this woman.   I did some research long ago and this woman was vitriolic against any type of reproductive and contraceptive health for women.  Mother Teresa has brought into the theology of power and victimhood i.e. keep the poor as poor as possible in order for  HER  to feel in control and powerful.  I saw a documentary on Channel 13, PBS, no so long ago in which a Roman Catholic missionary stated that it is de rigueur for the Church to help and victimize the poor to KEEP THEM  POOR in order for the Church to retain its power over the poor.  In other words, the poor are a commodity in their eyes-no poor, no Church.

    Some of you may have read my work on organized religions and the dangerous fairy tales they perpetuate but I must admit, I always thought Mother Teresa was a great humanitarian and even suggested she be Cannonized in my book "Up One Level".  I'm shocked to hear anything negative about her but not suprised. The people of this world have been conned and lied to for tens of thousands of years by religious organizations. When are you all going to learn? Haven't we sent enough of our sons and daughters off to be blown to bits defending our various gods and lunatic religions?
