    Christopher Hitchens detested Mother Theresa and wrote a book about her entitled "The Missionary Position." He even flew to Rome to testify at the Vatican when they were considering making her a saint. Penn and Teller really dislike her as well. It seems that the public image of Mother Theresa was very different from what she was really like.
