But what Mr. Hudson does most admirably is not so much belittle such notorious detractors of Mother Teresa, like Christopher Hitchens, as hit the "reveal code" button of their motives. He quotes Jim Towey, a man who served as legal counsel for Mother Teresa for twelve years:
“People of faith understand the cry uttered by Mother Teresa -- people of no faith find it to be a stumbling cross. They cannot get their minds around the fact that Christ suffered and felt abandoned by the Father.”
He thinks that Christopher Hitchens is nothing but a publicity seeker.
“He’s a provocateur. He uses Mother Teresa to get attention, to feed off her celebrity. Hitchens has to conclude she was a hypocrite, or he has to retract his book and his atheism.”
