I’ve read the many negative reviews of Hitchens’ book, and virtually all the reviewers suffer from at least one of two flaws: Hitchens is to atheist science-ists what C. All in all, Mother Teresa followed the precepts of her religion. And she was so angry, but also very resigned which so many people become in that situation. Selflessness is one thing. It’s good to know that things changed and aren’t anymore as explained in the book.

I feel if he were given concrete evidence that Mother Teresa were a completely selfless and honest woman, then this book would not have been written? Suffering is good for the world because suffering is getting a big wet sloppy kiss from Jesus. No chairs anywhere, there were just these stretcher beds.

It pains chrjstopher to rate this as low as I did. But this not the first time I am hearing such things about Mother Teresa. She associated with Reagan and Thatcher. In his measure Among his many books, perhaps none have sparked more outrage than The Missionary PositionChristopher Hitchens’s meticulous study of the life and deeds of Mother Teresa.

Loudon goes on to observe that needles were reused continually and not sterilized but only rinsed at the cold water tap – another false show of poverty at the expense of the residents’ well being. But according to Hitchens, “Mother Teresa has dellaa pretended that her work is anything but a fundamentalist religious campaign. She taught salvation through suffering and as a rule denied medical care to those whom she cared for–not even follow the accepted rules of hospice care for the dying–while playing it up to rich people in the West that she was relieving the sorrow and poverty of the world’s most miserable people.

She was a friend of poverty. She reports that misssionaria ones who were not too sick to care were extremely depressed because they were not permitted to watch TV or have miwsionaria come over, even when they were dying.

While not a fun read, I’d certainly recommend this. Ours has to be a free service, and to the poor” p.
