In This thread about the impending canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the following claim is offered:
I disagree with the last thought.
I don’t think that a significant part of our “mainstream culture” sees Catholic missionary work as distasteful, either, but I suppose that’s a more variably defensible position. But I absolutely reject the claim that some significant number see it as a wrongful act of aggression. I suppose this might be the attitude of some tiny fraction of liberal academia; I admit that the self-styled intelligentsia may well adopt this thinking.
And to whatever extent it can be said as a matter of fact: I don’t agree that Catholic missionary work is in fact a per se wrongful act of aggression.
