Canadian researchers discuss ‘The dark side of Mother Teresa’
LISTEN | PRINT
BY IGOR I. SOLAR MAR 7, 2013 IN WORLD
Montreal- A study conducted by Canadian researchers questions Mother Teresa’s views on the poor’s suffering, the dubious management of money by the Missionaries of Charity, and contends the humanitarian image of Mother Teresa is a media-orchestrated "myth".



The paper published on-line on January 15, 2013, in the Journal "Studies in Religion/Sciences religieuses" under the title "Les côtés ténébreux de Mère Teresa” (The dark side of Mother Teresa) is based on the analysis of 287 documents covering 96% of the literature on the life and work of Mother Teresa of Calcutta (born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu), the Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun, 1979 Nobel Peace Prize winner, and founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity (OMC). The report concludes that the nun’s sacred image and the events leading to her beatification were the result of a well-orchestrated and effective media campaign.


"The researchers, Serge Larivée and Geneviève Chénard of the University of Montreal and Carole Sénéchal of the University of Ottawa, as shown in an article on the official website of the University of MontrealMother Teresa: anything but a saint...”, object to Mother Teresa’s

"rather dubious way of caring for the sick, her questionable political contacts, her suspicious management of the enormous sums of money she received, and her overly dogmatic views regarding, in particular, abortion, contraception, and divorce."


The study points out that Mother Teresa organized 517 missions for poor and sick people in over 100 countries. The researchers indicate the missions have been described as "homes for the dying" by doctors who visited several of these institutions in Calcutta. According to the researchers"the doctors observed a significant lack of hygiene, even unfit conditions, as well as a shortage of actual care, inadequate food, and no painkillers."

Since the foundation created by Mother Teresa collected hundreds of millions of dollars, the authors allege that the problem was not caused by lack of funds. They assert that the situation was due to the nun’s rather unique 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, citing journalist Christopher Hitchens. Nonetheless, according to Hitchens, when Mother Teresa required palliative care, she received it in a modern American hospital."

Dirty piece of moral assasination based on lies and exaggeration
Of course in poor countries you don’t have the same ressources to treat poor people like rich countries
Saint Theresa will take people left by everyone their state , their family and she will help them . When she died the government and people of India and the world celebrated Saint Mother Theresa . One of the greatest figures of the 20 th century more important than all Druzes combined together.
A great saint , all people love her the model of compassion. Helping and inspiring hundreds of Millions of people.

She herself admitted to Hitchens that she had no interest in treating poor people and said "she wasn't a social worker". But there to "spread catholicism".
If you don't like the Druze, go back to your Syrian homeland and leave Fakhriddine's nation.

Stop twisting her words
Look at the full carrier and work
When she died the authorities of India made a national funeral for her ; of course she was a catholic but she helped all people; see what she did
Mother Teresa was the founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic congregation of women dedicated to helping the poor. Considered one of the 20th Century's greatest humanitarians, she was canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in 2016.

Her "miracle" for sainthood is laughable. She claimed that the film was in the dark but the picture was lighter than the filmmakers expected. That's hilarious. She's a con.

Mother Teresa Was Kind of a Heartless *****

Mother Teresa has been beatified by the Catholic Church, but she's no saint—in more ways than one.

Before Carly Fiorina, before the fraudulent Planned Parenthood videos, there was Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Thanks to the Catholic church's propaganda, we remember the nun as a modern saint, but history tells a different story.
Catholics have ignored these claims for generations. To this day, the church and its followers love Mother Teresa fervently: A reported 300,000 peopleshowed up to the Vatican to see Pope John Paul II beatify her (the first step to making a dead person a saint).

Before her death in 1997, the nun gained her cult following through opening 517 missions, many in Calcutta, the capital of India's West Bengal state; however, allegations of financial and medical corruption have plagued Teresa's missions for at least two decades. Serge Larivée and Genevieve Chenard, of University of Montreal's Department of Psychoeducation, and Carole Sénéchal of the University of Ottawa, published a paper in 2012 detailing Teresa's crimes: When doctors visited her missions, they reportedly discovered that one-third of patients "lay dying without receiving appropriate care."
The same paper claims that doctors found a shortage of care, food, and painkillers, although Teresa had raised millions of dollars. Slate also found that Teresa brought in tons of money, but her missionaries looked as bad when she founded them as they did after her death. (During her own illness, Teresa fled to California clinics, Slate reports.) The conditions in her missions were so dire, in fact, that they were once compared to photographs of "Nazi Germany's Bergen-Belsen concentration camp."
When confronted about these allegations, according to Christopher Hitchens, Mother Teresa said, "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."

If there was one group that Teresa avidly wanted to protect from suffering, it was fetuses. According to New York Times, Mother Teresa used her Nobel Prize acceptance speech to speak out against abortion. ''To me, the nations with legalized abortion are the poorest nations," she said. "The greatest destroyer of peace today is the crime against the unborn child.'' (Research shows that abortion happens with the same frequency whether or not it is legal; however, women are 34 times more likely to die from abortion in countries where the procedure is restricted.)
In 1994, Teresa traveled to Washington, DC, where she delivered a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast with President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore in the audience. In this address, she insisted that opposing abortion is as important as preventing child starvation. "Many people are very, very concerned with the children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on," she said. "Many people are also concerned about all the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions who are being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today—abortion which brings people to such blindness."

That same year, journalists Christopher Hitchens and Tariq Ali created a television documentary called Hell's Angel about Mother Teresa, in which Hitchens accused her of being "a demagogue, an obscurantist and a servant of earthly powers" who would rather denounce abortion and contraception than help the poor. According to the Washington Post, the film also details the nun's close friendships with Charles Keating, a financier who became notorious for his involvement in the 1990s savings and loan crisis, and Jean-Claude Duvalier, the Haitian dictator known as Baby Doc, best known for his reputation of kidnapping and torturing people. Although her missions looked impoverished, Teresa allegedly took money from both these men, who ruined thousands, if not millions, of people's lives.
Throughout the following decades, Mother Teresa went on to encourage countries and politicians to support dangerous ancient morals. She urged Ireland to vote against a bill allowing divorce in 1995, and the following year she called Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole to thank him for helping ban some late-term abortions. When wearing AIDS ribbons became trendy, she bragged about helping victims—although she hates condoms, which would have saved countless lives. That the potential future saint would simultaneously want to fight AIDS and condom use is not surprising, given her long history of total hypocrisy.
