Mother Teresa Dies

The infamous Mother Teresa has died at the age of 87. She won the Nobel Prize in 1979. A Roman Catholic nun, she died Friday at her her religious order's headquarters in India.

While widely seen as the model of religious compassion, many people in recent years had begun to reveal the true nun behind the facade. Writer and social critic Christopher Hitchens recently wrote a book critical of her and her admirers titled "The Missionary Position."

Mother Teresa was against birth control and abortion. On abortion, she said it "is murder in the womb ... A child is a gift of God. If you do not want him, give him to me.''

She was fond of associating with the rich and famous, such as the recently deceased Princess Diana. Her friendship with Congressman Charles Keating led him to donate $1.25 million to her order. It was later revealed that the money had been stolen from americans by Keating in the Savings and Loan scandal. A 1994 British television documentary, ``Hell's Angel: Mother Teresa of Calcutta,' showed that she had alos received funds from Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier.

Recently she had been in the U.S. to testify before Congress.
