As with “Terror support services” financial, social and religious frauds do not survive and grow without a support network. The usual support network – Media, political groups, NGOs and international groups defy all odds to perpetuate the fraud. Mother Teresa, now St. Teresa, is not a new phenomenon except that the arrival of social media exposes her lies and conduct far more than ever before. Dr. Aroup Chatterjee has been reporting on the bogus work of ST’s Missionary for many years. He has written one recently too. This is how the bogus miracle of St. Teresa started; all over a Kodak film malfunction (from Mother Politics):
How did this MT myth and lies start? A mundane coincidence with a new kind of camera film sets off a bogus miracle: “We think it started with a movie shoot (which became the documentary Something Beautiful For God), led by Mr (Malcolm) Muggeridge. He went to Calcutta to see Mother Teresa and her work there. He wanted to film in the house of the dying and then there was little light there. So, the cameraman, Mr (Ken) McMillan, he used a new kind of Kodak film. When they saw the film, the shots were bright and when Mr Muggeridge saw it, he claimed it was a miracle. This is why she became popular in the media after that time”. The hoax requires support of the establishment, the church, media and assorted individuals. Here’s the latest establishment support. GOI could have sent one representative to be politically correct but no; it took a whole “Dirty Dozen”:
In the West, Christianity is a dying Faith. The churches and even the Vatican is full of scandals. In particular, the Vatican is also full of financial scandals and corruption. Aroup Chatterjee rightly calls ST a politician who worked for the Vatican. For a long time, they haven’t had a hero. They haven’t had a saintly person to gloat about. Only paedophiles in churches and Evangelists who turned out to be homosexuals are making news. They found one in Mother Teresa. Though the truth about this “Hell’s angel” was tumbling out for years they had to stick to their beliefs, else there would be more ignominy for the Catholic world. Chatterjee describes the haste with MT’s beatification was done without the usual wait and even the so-called miracle was a farce:
“Bengalis showed some rare guts when she was beatified through a "miracle" in 2003. Doctors, and even the then Minister, made statements that Monica Besra was cured by prolonged treatment, and not by an aluminium medal. Even Besra herself periodically said her cure was not a miracle. But the Vatican treated Indian with the contempt it always has and proceeded with canonisation. But what is so great about Catholic saints? People should realise a Catholic saint does not have to be saintly or nice in the secular sense, but has to be pure to Catholic dogma, especially on contraception and abortion. Jose Maria Escriva, a Fascist, is a Catholic saint; another Fascist, Cardinal Stepinac, is a "blessed". "Saint" John Paul II actively shielded the prolific paedophile and criminal Marcial over many years. Mother Teresa also wrote a letter of support for a convicted paedophile priest Donald McGuire, asking people to overlook his "imprudence".
All that ST wanted was that the sick and the poor die as Christians. That they get a “ticket to St. Peters” as she mentioned in one of her discourses. She is also on record stating “a lot of people confuse me as social worker, I am not a social worker. I am in the service of Jesus and my job is to spread the word of Christianity and bring people to its fold”. But once the politically-driven Nobel Prize was dished out to MT a vast majority in India believed her to be a real angel. Of course, one could say MT wasn’t dishonest to her cause. She just wanted to convert anyone available and send them to St. Peters when the time came. Healing or medical attention was hardly a priority. It is the politicians and the media that built a fake story around her which the Vatican wanted. When Mohan Bhagwat of the RSS stated that MT’s primary goal was conversion not service to the poor, even Narendra Modi could not resist the temptation of glorifying this nun. Even when there was no need for it:
It's not a comparison but just think about it. Vijay Mallya’s frauds too were supported and built by politicians, govts, media and even corrupt banks. His was a financial fraud and betrayal. It’s not different for any social fraud. The State and INSTITUTIONS support frauds till it’s too late for people to recover losses or realise the betrayal. And there will be even socialites who are so badly sold this stupidity that their utterances are beyond belief and reek of extreme moronery:
The outrage over MT being canonised and now a Saint is a bit over the top. As Chatterjee points out, for the Catholics it DOES NOT matter who the person or his/her real life was. All that matters is whether the person was faithful to the Church and their mission. We shouldn’t bother too much about St. Teresa either. Tomorrow, let the Vatican make John Dayal, Kancha Iliah or Sitaram Yechury a saint. Or for that matter let them make Sonia Gandhi a saint. What difference does it make to anyone? Nothing! It took a long time for the truth about Teresa to come in to public domain because of the Institutional support she had. The Institutional fraudsters covered up for her. This is what we must now fight to prevent in future. With SM growing in power the frauds are becoming more difficult to perpetrate.
Christianity has no more customers in the West. India is now the biggest market for Jesus-Salesmen and it is the reason that brand Teresa means a lot. New found vigour in missionary work. Conversions through bribery and food-grains. Deriding Hinduism in secret sermons. That is what the danger may be as S. Gurumurthy points out and the State colludes in this to protect its own standing or interests, not of the country:
And without much waste of time, the GOI as an Institution is all set to launch this assault on India with this one:
Schools will be set up in her name. Small street-corner churches as well as bigger churches will come up. Some govts like Kerala or TN will also fund such projects for their vote-banks. Private enterprise in this endeavour will be funded by Western forces and churches. Soul-harvesting and Crucifying India will now be an even bigger project. Not surprisingly, rationalists and atheist who rant about Hindu practices gladly welcome the imaginary miracles of Christians.
A few days prior to Teresa’s sainthood there was a report that 500 Hindus converted to Christianity in Bihar. Of course, needless to add such conversions do not follow the legal process warranted by law. So what is the way forward. Hindus cannot forever protest such sainthoods or missionaries, for whom conversion is the sole business in life. We supposedly have a govt now which came under the plank of a lot of Hindutva and Uniform Civil Code and the like. The only way to stop the menace is for Hindu activists and institutions to start petitioning the GOI to bring in a national ban on conversions. Strong activism on the ground is the only thing that will stop State and Institutional frauds perpetrating falsehoods and frauds to fool Indian masses. Else, we know the entities that want to destroy Hinduism as this image (unaware who created it) so accurately portrays.
