Dartmouth Society of Douchebags

An atheist group at Dartmouth College is planning an event aimed at skewering the reputation of the late Mother Teresa.

The Atheists Humanists Agnostics (AHA) club sent out a campus-wide e-mail announcing the program on Tuesday and promising a “full-out romp against why one of the most beloved people of the century, Mother Teresa, is as Hitchens put it… ‘a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf.’”


Mother Teresa is widely known for her life’s work of aiding the poor and comforting the sick.

The e-mail says the group plans to screen an anti-Mother Teresa film, discuss Hitchens’ book, Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice, and question how the public has been “conned into thinking this woman [Teresa] was good.”

The e-mail states Teresa, who is on her way to sainthood in the Catholic church, “was not a friend of the poor,” but “was a friend of poverty.”

The email links to a now infamous article by the late Christopher Hitchens which attempts to debunk much of the lore that surrounds Teresa.

The event has ignited controversy on the Ivy League campus, with students telling Campus Reform they were upset AHA was hosting such an event.

“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.

Hann added that he estimates about five to ten people will participate in the event slated for this Saturday.

Mother Teresa is widely known for founding the Missionaries of Charities, a charity tasked with aiding the poor. She was beatified in 2003 by Pope John Paul II, a step toward possible sainthood.

I'm guessing he gained entrance through legacy.

Particularly troubling when you know the history of Dartmouth College.

quote:

Dartmouth is the ninth-oldest institution of higher education in the United States. It was founded in 1769 by the Reverend Eleazar Wheelock, a Congregational minister from Connecticut who had earlier established Moor's Charity School in Lebanon, Connecticut, principally for the education of Native Americans. In seeking to expand his school into a college, Wheelock relocated to Hanover in the Royal Province of New Hampshire. There John Wentworth, the Royal Governor of New Hampshire, provided the land upon which Dartmouth would be built and on December 13, 1769, conveyed the charter from King George III establishing the college. That charter created a College “for the education and instruction of Youth of the Indian Tribes in this Land ... and also of English Youth and any others.”

Don't understand why people get so worked up about a little powerpoint presentation by less than ten people.

Mother Teresea may have had flaws and may get too much "hype" by some Catholics, but anyone acting as if she did no good in the world or was a bad person is a little sad and pathetic

Tell me, why should we not like Mother Teresea?

ETA: but I do think its BS that the Catholic church is trying to fast track her to sainthood

I have no problem with this.

It's going to take dramatic evidence for us to turn the corner, so, let the Left destroy.

One day, people will look around and figure out who owns the destruction. It may take a long time, but, one day, we will wake up.

She believed in poverty and suffering, raised money on the backs of the poor, suffering Indians and never did anything to improve the medical care or lessen their suffering. She just gave money to the Vatican.

What did she do that was "good"?
