The Ghost Of Christopher Hitchens Haunts The Ghost Of Mother Teresa

In a bizarre turn of spectral events, the ghost of the renowned atheist and author Christopher Hitchens has reportedly taken up residence in the afterlife and chosen to haunt none other than the ghost of Mother Teresa, the Catholic nun and supposed humanitarian.

According to the ghostly grapevine, Hitchens' spirited antics revolve around challenging Mother Teresa's legacy and questioning the motives behind her charitable work. His disembodied voice echoes through the halls of the ghostly realm, haunting Mother Teresa's apparition, offering biting criticisms of her approach to poverty alleviation and her religious fervor.

One apparition has seen the haunting firsthand and thinks it adds a bit of spice to the afterlife. "She can't get away from him," the spirit said. "I don't know if this is justice, but it is entertaining as well as educational. In death, Hitchens has had a lot of time to sharpen his rhetorical skills." 

In life, Hitchens raised concerns about the conditions and quality of care in the facilities run by Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity. Reports have alleged substandard medical care, lack of proper pain management, and inadequate hygiene practices. He argued that her reputation as a humanitarian overshadowed those shortcomings and prevented adequate scrutiny.

Another critique from the famed atheist is that Mother Teresa's approach focused more on providing spiritual comfort and salvation rather than addressing the root causes of poverty. He argued that her emphasis on providing care for the destitute and dying, without simultaneously addressing the structural issues perpetuating poverty, provided temporary relief but failed to address the systemic problems in the long term. Of course, her attitude that suffering brought people closer to God did not prevent her from traveling overseas to seek care for her own medical problems.

Witnesses from the realm of the departed claim that Hitchens' spectral form can be seen swooping and swirling, quoting passages from his book God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything and delivering eloquent speeches that point out the moral dubiousness of Mother Teresa's mission. Ethereal onlookers find themselves caught between laughter and reflection, as Hitch carries on the good fight in the afterlife.
