OK...I remember seeing Mother Teresa on Crusades so to speak where people by the thousands would surround her and press in on her and I thought she is a little old lady give her some room and a break before you hurt her. Same with the videos I have seen of Gandhi and I think that both Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi did great thing in promoting Non-violence and love and kindness and goodness.

But...

I want to talk about a religios fanatic that rubs me the wrong way. It is not because the religion he has chosen to believe in was totally made up out of the imagination of a fiction story writer but because of the way that he uses his celebrity to promote it and how abusive he appears to be treating his wife and daughter. Yep that is right I am talking about Tom Cruise and Scientology. Did you know that a woman is not allowed to make a sound while giving birth if you are in Scientology? I have given birth to 4 out of 5 of my children one was a 10 lbs 8 oz baby boy. I was at the time before getting pregnant a 5 foot woman with a small frame weighing 120 lbs. I made noise and let me tell you if you would have come in the room and told me to stop it I would have gotten up out of that bed and ripped your head off (because of course I would have become possessed by a spirit of 'woman in labor and pissed off-ed-ness). I used to love to watch Mr. Cruise in his movies and I still believe he is a talented actor but I think he did Nicole Kidman wrong and I think he is controling Katie. I have lost all respect for the man.

Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 5 September 1997), born Agnes Gonxhe Bojaxhiu , was a Catholic nun of Albanian ethnicity and Indian citizenship, who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India in 1950. For over 45 years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries.

What do you know about Mother Teresa? What do you think about people like her and Mahatma Gandhi? Today, try to do a little research about a celebrated religious leader (from any religion) and tell us about that person and why you chose that person to write about that person. How do they inspire you or do they rub you the wrong way?
