But Randi and his ill-legit sons Penn & Teller said more or less the same thing about Mother Teressa... she was a crook & a charlatan as well :roll:

Sorry, but Randi can spin things so well I'd swear his real name is Rumpelstiltskin

I know what you're saying... I also love your redundant point in the close about "evil christians"... in my life I've known little other :?

In the case of Teresa however, I don't think she's the primary culprit. Rather, the peanut counters at the Vatican is where the real blame needs be placed just as I'd place it on the accounting department of the Southern Baptist Convention the PTL, etc. When accountants get involved with the cash the idea of compassion and fulfilling one's "mission" goes right out the window. In her case their "out" was the fact that her whole ministry centered on the claim of poverty which gave them all the excuse they needed for stealing millions... but hey, we're talking about the Vatican... how many billions of dollars of art, religious artifacts, temple treasures, etc. has it usurped over the past 1700 or so years of its official existence?

Maybe you can see now why I chuckled at your closing line :roll:
