Tiny babies were bound with cloths at feeding time.

They tried their best to be obedient, and did not know that the great bulk of donations their order received remained hidden unused in Mother’s bank accounts.

Also eyewitnessers had to give their names otherwise he wouldn’t have added them in the book.

Hitchens was an anti-theist, and posizionw described himself as a believer in the Enlightenment values of secularism, humanism, and reason.

Why answer with abuses? But we have her own claim that she opened convents in more than a hundred countries, all bearing the name of her own order. La posizione della missionaria: No trivia or quizzes yet. Mother’s theology glorifies suffering. Nowadays I am a lapsed Catholic and willing to admit many failing in the Church’s practices.

Books by Christopher Hitchens.

But he works them towards a flimsy thesis that Mother Theresa was some kind of diabolical genius. Today Mother Teresa was elevated to sainthood by Pope Francis. She denied use of strong painkillers or antibiotics on principle. People from all over the missiinaria have donated to the Missionaries of Charity because they think they’re helping the poor, sick people from India, when in reality they’re funding Theresa’s world wide network of convents and death houses whose sole purpose is proselytizing.

She had the gall to cite how Keating missionatia money to her charities as proof of his better nature, while never addressing the fact that this money was stolen by Keating through fraud.

Mother Teresa uses her influence to promote missioharia control and anti-abortion dogmas, despite the fact that overpopulation and unwanted children are likely factors in the need for her institutions.

Want to Read saving…. Dec 27, Caroline rated it really liked it Recommended to Caroline by: All I can say is thankfully this cash cow for the forces of evil in this world is dead! From the hiychens catty title to the confused layout, the book is frustrating when it should be enlightening and only works for about fifteen pages in the middle when substance is finally allowed to triumph over style.

The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice by Christopher Hitchens

As for the “miracle” that had to be attested, what can one say? She mentions one patient in particular who was able to escape the hostel for a while, because a caring friend of Gillespie’s offered to take him in. Hitchens dances around this, but never quite nails it. Some did their christopjer to give love and affection – at least some of the time.

Hitchens also quotes a response from one of the prosecutors in the case, in which he informed Mother Teresa that Keating had given her stolen funds and asked that dslla return the money to the rightful owners. While he was once identified with the Anglo-American radical political left, near the end of his life he embraced some arguably right-wing causes, most notably the Iraq War.


You would be surprised how many Catholics actually do not believe that Mother Teresa was all that saintly. She became a ‘Saint’ by serving the poor of Calcutta. When it came to money, on one hand the rule of her order took the firm position that the sisters were to trust in Providence from day to day in one convent the sisters were berated by Teresa for canning an abundance of donated tomatoesbut on the other hand her order took in millions of dollars given by individuals, corporations, foundations, and governments for the relief of the poor, money that was never used for such purposes and that still remains unaccounted for.

It seems people defend her without wanting to chridtopher. Given the author and subject, the book practically writes itself. The pope has abolished this office and has created more instant saints than all his predecessors combined as far back as the 16th century. Better care for patients under their care was not provided, not because Mother Theresa was unable to provide, but because mossionaria was unwilling to provide it.

I don’t know if he was often drunk but he talks only about things for which can be gathered informations. Hitch spends the remaining part of the book in detailing, with evidence, Mother Teresa’s real mission and how she went about it.

Personally, I think Hitchen is a bit too hard on Mother Teresa.
