A new expose of Mother Teresa shows that she—and the Vatican—were even worse than we thought � Why Evolution Is True

New study reveals what many, though not enough, have known about Mother Teresa. Not the saintly being so many bought into:

A new expos of Mother Teresa shows that she—and the Vatican—were even worse than we thought   Why Evolution Is True: Two-thirds of the people coming to these missions hoped to a find a doctor to treat them, while the other third lay dying without receiving appropriate care. The doctors observed a significant lack of hygiene, even unfit conditions, as well as a shortage of actual care, inadequate food, and no painkillers. The problem is not a lack of money—the Foundation created by Mother Teresa has raised hundreds of millions of dollars—but rather a particular conception of suffering and death: “There is something beautiful in seeing the poor accept their lot, to suffer it like Christ’s Passion. The world gains much from their suffering,” was her reply to criticism, cites the journalist Christopher Hitchens. Nevertheless, when Mother Teresa required palliative care, she received it in a modern American hospital.”

Why religion is humanity's greatest scam. They want you to believe in god so you'll accept their fairy tale that he gave them the right to rule and the privelege of never having to penny a penny in taxes.
