← Suffering

Roedy's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by Roedy

Christopher Hitchens wrote a book about Mother Theresa. He charged that when patients were dying in extreme pain (e.g. pancreas cancer) she would tell them that the pain was “Jesus’ kisses” and they should feel grateful. She had millions in the bank, but refused to buy pain killers or sterile needles.

She was mentally ill. All Christians who have this weird enjoyment of inflicting suffering on others are not right in the head.

The experience I most want to avoid is falling into the care of Christians on my deathbed. That is the most hellish thing I consider within the realm of probability.
