Mother Teresa was not a friend of the poor

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

Hitch will be missed. He had the right command over the language, right amount of knowledge and guts to take the religious head on. It will take some time to fill his place.

Hitchens - who had the guts to say, "The emperor is not wearing any clothes."

The sad fact is that the only people this isn't news to are people like us - who have bothered to look past the facade of Mother Teresa and into the FACTS.  For his work which provided us with the means to do that, I say once again:

Thanks, Hitch.
