The angel of death is one of mercy.

You'll learn when you've become more experienced in life.

It is an insult to Rosa Parks to be associated with Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa valued suffering and spent the vast majority of the money she received to spread religion, _not_ fight poverty. She was a disgrace and a fraud. Look it up.

In India, where she did most of her charitable work,
she was awarded the Padma Shri in 1962
and the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding in 1969.
She was also awarded India's highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna, in both 1972 and 1980.
On 28 August 2010, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of her birth, the government of India issued a special 5 Rupee coin.

Internationally, in 1962, Mother Teresa received the Philippines-based Ramon Magsaysay Award for International Understanding, given for work in South or East Asia.
In 1971, Paul VI awarded her the first Pope John XXIII Peace Prize, commending her for her work with the poor, display of Christian charity and efforts for peace.

She was awarded the Albert Schweitzer International Prize in 1975.

In 1976, she received the Pacem in Terris Award from the Pope.

She was awarded the Balzan Prize for promoting humanity, peace and brotherhood among peoples in 1978.

In 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and asked that the $192,000 funds be given to the poor.

She was appointed an honorary Companion of the Order of Australia in 1982, "for service to the community of Australia and humanity at large."

The United Kingdom and the United States each repeatedly granted awards, culminating in the Order of Merit in 1983, and honorary citizenship of the United States received on 16 November 1996.

During her lifetime and even after her death, Mother Teresa is still widely admired around the world.

So what. She was a fraud. Obviously she was too busy accepting awards the way a beauty pageant queen accepts bouquets of roses. She let her minions mind the sick and the poor. She pushed the church on people, and chased fame on behalf of herself. They should remove that statue, like they did with Joe Patorno's.
Seriously, it's time.

I'm surprised there was enough space on the egotistic charlatan doorway to add another face.
