She's not The Saint, dammit. Why do you even post here if you are so ignorant? People discussed her and there is a bunch of unpleasant facts about her but you probably think it's all a made-up haux to make her look bad. Because of fucking blind faith, people's ignorance and their wish to not use their brains but believe everything they see on tv and read in books this world is going to hell.


Cool story you have there.
Because of haters, their ignorance and methods to attack her but trying to connect everything to make her looks bad. Neglecting what she has done to poor people because of ... what? This world has enough of hater.


I don't hate. It's just an anger on this person who says she believes no matter what.

I don't say Mommy was a Hitler-like, I say using this popular word, she was overrated. The opening post asks you for your thoughts about "What she was not a saint at all?". I'm more neutral about it. I heard good and I heard bad about her. I'll prob never know what was the Truth.

She quit praying before she passed on. That was about as unfaithful as she ever got. After all the years of her service to humanity, she had plenty of room to be doubtful for once. I mean, she was pretty old. Before death you act unlike yourself. A saint is a person who has been canonized, not always any real spiritual figure. God is Saint Peter. Mother Teresa is a saint because people recognize her as one.

SHE IS A SAINT.. THE LIVING SAINT. I am not ignorant, I'm just saying how I feel about this stupid topic and YES I really think that this is all just a made up haux to make her look bad. TELL ME, if I use my brain, will I be able toprove how the world started? IT IS ALL HYPOTHETICAL.. there's no proven reason how the world started ... just choose what you believe in..

What the Big Bang/Creation do with this thread even?
And Terry isn't a saint, let alone a living saint. More like long-dead pseudo-Jesus.

I'm not gonna answer you anymore, it's useless.

She was an admirable woman with a strength few possess and a heart made out of pure gold.

hey hey, calm down, saints dont exists , Its not blind faith, its just plain ignorance and lack of research, its not thier fault. Its easier to just believe what you see on tv then to go out and research and 2nd guess everything you hear...its just not practicle.

Yes the media is biased and profit motivated, but its the easiet source to refer to. I dont think the world will go to hell because of a few misguided facts being spread and "blind faith". Just show them the facts and let them interpret the facts as they see them peace over war

I wasn't talking about lack of fact = highway to hell. I meant that ignorance in general leads to it, obviously. People just won't know anything about the world. They don't care about anything. That's why when I found out Mom wasn't actually this near saint person, I was shocked. I take these things seriously. No-one asked her to help people but she was pretending to be a helper which is ugly, just ugly.

Checked the vids, JJ? They are pretty interesting.

i saw the vids, and i must say my arguement doesnt change. Aside from political clashes, philososphical clashes, and cultural clashes, i still dont see how Mother Teresa can be viewed as some kind of angel from hell.I can find more dirt on Dr martin Luther King and JFK.

The videos were prapoganda to say the leasts. They showed Mother's actions and interpreted them for the viewers.I didnt hear any of it confirmed through Mother Teresa's own testamony, they just used her quotes out of context (which is what they do in most propoganda). her actions can lead to more then one interpretation also, but im not here to nit pick the video, argue her points, or even defend her.
Once again this really is just a difference of culture and beliefs.I dont think Mother was "pretending" to do anything. Mother simply defines life, poverty, and help differently than most of the West does.Im pretty sure she believed she was doing the right thing. That doesnt make her some kind of monster IF she got it wrong.
Too many people beleive thier culture has it right, and everyone else has it wrong.
I still say she did a hell of a lot more then any of those critics in the video did. I would like to see them try to do it the "right" way.

The video itself was somewhat dull and boring. They tried to come off as objective, but you can see the bias tone throughout every part of the video. Their arguements were based on big questions that they expected Mother Teresea to get "right"- such has the definition of life, the cure for poverty, and "true" help based on THEIR defintion of life, and the cure for poverty. Honestly, i was expecting some huge scheme about Mother Tereasa stealing weath given to the poor, or Mother Teresa being racists, or maybe her becoming a murderer- what a let down peace over war

Actually those vids are really a bit wicked. I found some stuff interesting but the whole mood of them is dull, as you said. This Christopher Hichens guy is smart and has his point but he's too much of Christianity hater. Well, I must say I just can't stand organized religion but he tries too hard to prove everything in it is bullshit.

Know any dirty ML King facts er? Or it was a bravado?

For some reason, this response made me laugh.

I just saw the 3 videos. And i must say, prior to watching it, i just realized i had no idea what teresa did that would warrant the title she was labeled to be: the living saint.

IMO she was just over hyped by the media and used by politicians for their own propaganda. In exchange Teresa got what she wanted, she became a global icon and got some hefty donations.

The purity of her intentions is the one in question in this documentary. Since based on this she had one goal in mind: the spreading of her religion. But If indeed her intentions was pure, one will now question her virtue of prudence, since her acts of helping the sick are astonishingly....bad. Plus her arguments about abortion, world peace and forgiveness were kinda...err..
