You can hate her all you want. I don't care. Poor people before her, poor people after her. Do you think she caused harm or was she just ineffective? Blocking aid that they didn't have before left them no better or worse in my opinion.
You don't think they would have been better off had the aid not been blocked?

Teresa was also difficult to contradict because of the massive catholic PR machine behind her.

True.
But considering that, with the same resources available, a rational person in her position would have relieved their suffering, they WERE worse off for knowing her.

Could she have helped? Yes

Was it her responsibility? No

Where were the other 1/2 billion people? That's a lot of pressure on a little woman. Nun or not. Where was England? Where was India?

I don't vilify her.

I vilify the church and the religion that duped her.

Her intentions were praiseworthy.

Her actions were not.

Google maps is your friend... seriously though, the UK was sending a lot of aid to India at the time, but that's coming to an end now.

I think India doesn't care enough for its lowest caste or its tribal people. They get very little assistance indeed.

Exactly. Theresa lived there. She could have worked her "magic" anywhere she wanted to.

It shouldn't have been her burden. Blame the leadership if there is somebody to blame for poverty and desperation.

You lying T\/\/AT

James Holmes, Anders Behring Breivik, Radovan Karadzic, Ratko Mladic, the IRA, the NLFT, and the KKK and anti abortionists in the US and how about those dealers in misery, the eastern European human traffickers, the majority of all those caught and tried are christian. Hitler was catholic and Stalin was destined to become a priest before taking over Russia

Let me repeat

You lying T\/\/AT

Whenever you stalk me I will respond whenever you lie about me I will respond, whenever you project you christian hatred and spite and jealousy on me I will respond, you don’t like it then stop stalking me

You moron. You're comparing population percentage growth to population numbers growth.
Yes, Christianity is on the rise, worldwide at a 1.3% higher than the previous year.
Whereas the worldwide population is rising at 1.2%.
You hate that, huh?
Say what?“population percentage growth to population numbers growth” Do you actually realise what you said there? Can not the numbers growth be represented as a percentage? Or am I missing something fundamental here – or is it perhaps you who is missing something fundamental? Yes that must be it.

In your blindness you are ignoring the fact that 1.2% of 7 billion is considerably larger than 1.3% of 2.3 billion

When you actually get you head around the figures yoy will understand however you deliberate ignorance will prevent you seeing the significance

Let me ask you again
What would you prefer

1.2% of 7 billion dollars (80 million)
or
1.3% of 2.3 billion dollars (30 million)

Which would you choose?

Nope actually I love it because it means that in real terms christianity is shrinking as a percentage of the world population at a rate of 50 million a year. And what is more interesting is the fact that you can so easily deceive yourself even when the facts are there right there in front of you

We have a Christmas wreath outside our front door. The weather has been mild so far here in Southern Illinois. To our surprise some birds have set up shop in the wreath. The just love the greenery I suppose.
Anyone coming to our front door gets a little surprise. The pizza man came the other day and nearly dropped our pizza, lol. Birds are so much fun to watch.
Not christmas wreaths, their use stems back to pre christian times and were used as a sign of rebirth at the pagan winter solstice festivals. Good to know that you are keeping old traditions alive though
