Why The Canonization of Mother Teresa Will Only Highlight Corruption In The Catholic Church

The Pope is reportedly going to be giving the okay to¬†give sainthood to Mother Teresa. St. Teresa… why not? She helped the poor and the sick, did she not? She devoted her life to the less privileged in India, no? She lived amongst the ailing and gave comfort to those in their last hours… right?

It would appear that way, yes. However, what was really going on was far more sinister, and deserving of nothing but our ridicule and criticism.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Here’s Penn, Teller and Christopher Hitchens:

Still not sure? Here’s more from Mr. Hitchens:

Not enough, you gullible simpleton? Read The Missionary Position by Christopher Hitchens, then.

If Mother Teresa is canonized, it’ll only serve to lower my opinion of the Catholic church, and that’s saying a lot, since I already think worse of the institution than I do Hitler’s decayed sphincter.

Share this information far and wide, heathens.

Christopher Hitchens

MT [Mother Teresa] was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction.
– Christopher Hitchens

    *Applause* Well said. It’s just sad because it seems like there is no one you can hold up and say “this is an example of what humanity should be like. This was a virtuous human being.”

    Mother Teresa’s real record survives scrutiny about as well as Ronald Reagan’s. They were both monstrous frauds.

    This pope is as good at promoting himself as she was. It’s only natural that he should elevate her. I think this papacy is just a deal he made to get the job, and here is one of the conditions he had to agree to.

    • Good point. He does seem to have great publicity so far.
