College atheist group plans massive anti-Mother Teresa demonstration Comments

A Dartmouth College atheist group is planning an event aimed at denouncing and vilifying the work of the late Mother Teresa. The Atheists Humanists Agnostics club sent out an e-mail announcing the program next week. The group promises a "full-out romp against why one of the most beloved people of the century, Mother Teresa, is as Hitchens put it . 'a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf.'" Continue Reading

    Dear A.H.A. Members,

    Please be assured that Blessed Teresa will be praying for you as you participate in your event!

    When the belief in multiple gods like in Paganism comes to a saturation point one becomes A-theist even unto generational influences & in the process develops a Spiritual vacuum filling it with hatred as is seen, which invariably goes not only against anything called God, but unknowingly against oneself to the simple understanding that Paganism & Atheism are but the extremes on either side of the same coin, complimenting each other, a tactics of the devil. The only remedy to this is Christ.

    These guys are sick. But what else can we expect from Liberal Democrat Obama voters.

    Good heavens. What indeed, if anything, has a single one of these adolescent half-wits done to help anyone but themselves? But that's okay - Mother Teresa loves them anyway. Mr. Hitchens remained a vitriolic atheist until the day he died. Perhaps some of these young people will choose a better path once they grow up.

    It's dreadful how those atheists actually look at what Teresa did and evaluate it instead of just reading her PR - her association with criminals and tyrants, her cruel practices involving neither medical treatment nor painkillers, and her lying about where the money was going. Nice attempt also to slander Hitchens' article as infamous, but you haven't pointed out in any way why he was wrong. And if a fraction of the accusations are true, Teresa was simply a deceitful, evil ghoul - a puritannical zealot and fraud.

    Hann added that he estimates only about five to 10 people will participate in the event slated for this Saturday..."

    No wonder, you could probably only find 5- 10 people on the planet who could find something nasty to say about Mother Theresa. Obviously this group are just about stirring up emotions and offending people. They will be forgotten, just like Hitchens will, while Mother will be known forever for her grace and kindness.

    These atheists use the same line of logic as the Russian communists in 1917 to vilify religion as the "opium of society" saying charity work perpetuates poverty by encouraging laziness. Every Christian knows Christianity promotes peace, stability, and progress in the world.

    illustrative of the depravity of some atheists, and how low some of them will go to fill their disordered need to bash Christianity and all its saints and good works...

    It amazes me why anyone would want to attack this great woman. I just need to know why, why would a bunch of rich atheists attack a woman who spent her life living in poverty because she gave all that she had to the poor. I pray they might come to there senses.

    Five to ten people are going to participate??? So why in the world give those kind of people press coverage. It's not news; it's not worth reporting; and bordering on scandalous when you don't even give any reasons as to why they are "Anti-Mother Teresa." What is the difference between a friend of the poor and friend of poverty? Please don't post meaningless information like this on your website--
