    yes, I have read some of the experiences of folks who tried to help Mother Teresa and had similar experiences. For instance, she wasn't interested in offering medical help to the dying; she wanted to assist them with prayers and religious help while they were dying, an entirely different thing. I used to think she was a genuinely holy person but the more I read, the more I saw that it's still just a religion, it's about control and money, and she was a controlling person who collected a ton of money, which wasn't used to help the poor.

    I'm almost afraid to see what comes out about the Dalai Lama - I really like a lot of things he has written, but he's just as human as anyone else. Who knows. There are good people, but I don't think religious leaders are usually very good.
