This one will leave you shaking your head in disgust.
An atheist group at Dartmouth College plans to roast the late Mother Teresa, describing the upcoming event as a “full-out romp against why one of the most beloved people of the century, Mother Teresa, is … ‘a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf,’” Campus Reform reports.
The event is slated for Saturday and will be hosted by the Atheists Humanists Agnostics (AHA) club, and it’s ignited controversy, the website states.
It’s easy for a group of privileged Ivy League students who have never experienced poverty to meet in a ‘super secret room’ and think themselves as intellectuals by bashing Mother Teresa,” Melanie Wilcox, Executive Editor of the conservative Dartmouth Review, told Campus Reform.
“I’d like to know what they have done, if anything, to help the needy,” she added.
AHA President Adam Hann, however, defended the event, but admitted he had intentionally used “provocative” language in the e-mail to excite interest among students.
“What I like to do is, when there are areas that people just get vitriol or angry even for bringing it up, I like to go and have that discussion,” said Hann.
It’s hard to believe academics spend their time crucifying a woman who argued for peace and love and took care of the forgotten and abandoned in this world. But in honor of Mother Teresa’s legacy, instead of making some snide comment about the type of people who are hosting this event, we’ll end with her words:
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other … spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
