Everybody has a right to their beliefs. That does not translate into a right to those beliefs being correct, or everyone having to view them as such.

“Mother Teresa: Sadistic religious fanatic guilty of medical malpractice
Mother Teresa was a sadistic religious fanatic who took pleasure in the suffering of others, and denied appropriate medical care to the sick and dying, according to a recently released study.
The study, published by Canadian researchers in the journal of studies in religion and sciences called Religieuses, claims that Mother Teresa was “anything but a saint.” The study reports Teresa was generous with her prayers but miserly with her foundation’s millions when it came to alleviating the suffering of the sick and the poor.
Researchers report Mother Teresa saw beauty in suffering, and was far more willing to pray for those in her care rather than provide practical medical treatment. In addition to her medical malpractice and her perverse and sadistic enjoyment of the suffering of others, the study also raises questions about Teresa’s financial mismanagement of large sums of money, and her friendship with unsavory and immoral world leaders.
Yet despite serious questions about Teresa’s character, motivation and methods, as well as concerns about her suspicious financial dealings and contacts, the Vatican engaged in a well orchestrated public relations campaign to manufacture a Catholic hero, even going so far as to take the unprecedented step to forgo the usual five-year waiting period before her beatification, the first step on the path to sainthood.
Famed author and journalist Christopher Hitchens is cited in the new study. Hitchens was one of the first to raise questions about the authenticity of claims made by the Roman Catholic Church promoting Mother Teresa. The following is an excerpt from Hitchens’ 2003 critique:
Mother Teresa was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction.
And she was a friend to the worst of the rich, taking misappropriated money from the atrocious Duvalier family in Haiti (whose rule she praised in return) and from Charles Keating of the Lincoln Savings and Loan. Where did that money, and all the other donations, go?
Many more people are poor and sick because of the life of Mother Teresa: Even more will be poor and sick if her example is followed. She was a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud, and a church that officially protects those who violate the innocent has given us another clear sign of where it truly stands on moral and ethical questions.
Fanatic, fundamentalist and fraud: this is the true legacy of Mother Teresa. The beatification and public promotion of this demonstrable moral monster serves as yet another reminder that the Roman Catholic Church is a morally bankrupt institution that is bereft of intellectual and/or ethical authority.”
