Mother Teresa, Saint

Here is another example of someone we should love because of the enemies she has. I’ve always contended that Mother Teresa was no altruist. That she was a selfish and self serving person. But as Seinfeld would say, “not that there’s anything wrong with that.” We all, because of unbeatable human nature, are at our best when acting with selfish ambition. Mother Teresa did miraculous work because it made her happy.

So,keeping with my busy schedule, using links instead of a lot of original content ( Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Isn’t it better than paraphrasing someone else and calling it my own.), here is a Breitbart article about the hypocrisy of the leftist hatred of people who do good themselves instead of having state power try to do it for them:

  1. Mother Teresa was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. (Really?? Why would God inflict this pain and suffering? Where is her benevolent God?) She was a fraud and she spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty in the countries in which she “helped,” that is, the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction. But hey, more believers in the Catholicism and thus more contributions in the coffers of the church.

    • Seems like I read this somewhere before. I can’t remember where. But the bottom line to me is that the words “empowering women” and “Planned Parenthood” produce a negative reaction. Kinda like Stalin and Gloria Steinem. My mind is open to the idea that MT was evil. So far saying being poor has some benefits isn’t enough. But I’m with you that organized religion is a scam.

      • Yes. I paraphrased the quote from, I think, Christopher Hitchon, but I have to check that. Re: my Mother Theresa comments, my point was her staunch advocacy of the Church’s stance on birth control.. She preached that artificial birth control was a sin, thus encouraging more births of third-world peoples into abject poverty. I always found the Catholic Church’s position on birth control a bit hypocritical, if not ludicrous. Isn’t it the “intent” that counts? If the intent is to prevent pregnancy but enjoy sexual relations, what difference does it make if one uses the rhythm method of birth control or employs the assistance of artificial birth control applications, like birth control pills, IUDs, condoms, etc.? It seems to me that one’s “intent” of not producing children is the violation of the Catholic God’s rules, not the methods used.
