I think that we need to be careful about our view of MT.  This writer didn't
like her because she was against birth control, for one thing.  I don't
begrudge her for that.  He also didn't like the fact that she took money
from scummy people.  I can see her point of view - she may have been so
bothered by the poverty she saw that she lost a little bit of objectivity.
As to publishing her charity, I don't know if she did this, or the donors
did this, or the press did this, or the Catholic Church did this.  And she
was more effective as a collector of funds given her visibility.

So I suggest that we withhold our criticism of MT and focus on our own
salvation. MT will be judged on her intent and the wishes of her heart.
