Was Mother Teresa Really ‘Saintly’?

Source. The daily Beast.

“I don’t know whether there are any moral saints,” wrote the philosopher Susan Wolf, in her famous 1982 article “Moral Saints.” “But if there are, I am glad that neither I nor those about whom I care most are among them.” As Wolf saw it, there was something dubious, suspect, about the idea of sainthood. One whose life was “dominated by a commitment to improving the welfare of others or of society as a whole” would be dreary, self-abnegating in the extreme, and well-nigh impossible to be around. And that personal dislikeability would, in itself, complicate the person’s ostensible saintliness.

  1. just the headline makes me sick. shut up. stop picking off christian targets and always beating down christianity. write something appropriate about building bridges instead of always offending people.
