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

1.2% of 7 billion is more than 1.3% of 1.3 billion, there is no argument with the maths

I will ask you the same, come on own up, 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?

If I am loosing at a rate of 50million a year then that’s fine by me, you continue to deceive yourself

Agreed on India. Still doesn't justify what happened to all the millions of dollars she raised though. It simply didn't get spent where its donors intended.

Does it ever?

I was conversing with a Pastor(???? or so he claims) earlier. He said the poor are best served by giving the money to the church. I asked why. Wouldn't the money be better spent by giving it to the poor and leaving the church out of it? He said no. Duh. Again, I asked why. He said the church can help them turn their lives around. I said, "They need money, not salvation". He disagreed again. I got bored and left it at that for now.

That guy sounds pretty selfish. I remember speaking to a Pastor when I was a Christian, and he seemed guilty about asking for money, when there are so many starving people in the world.
