Mother Teresa slammed. Again

After Christopher Hitchens damning indictment of Mother Teresa, we now have another reflection on her tarnished legacy. Widespread abuse has been discovered in many of her orphanages and as one doctor says, “the Indian government is ‘terrified’ of her reputation but if similar practices were found in any other home, it would have been shut down.”

Try this on for size:

“She cynically campaigned against birth control and contraceptives and did everything that she could to make the population problem more acute. The more born in misery and hopelessness, the more souls she would be able to save and more the brownie points that she would have to win the prize in heaven (sit next to Jesus Christ) and on earth (made into a saint by the bishop of Rome.)”
