The Empire State Building Makes A Saintly Slight

The Empire State Building lights up to commemorate many things.  Lately the Grateful Dead and Communist China to name a few.  Now it seems the Catholic Church would like to commemorate Mother Theresa’s 100th birthday.  They requested that the Empire State Building be lit up on August 26th in honor of Mother Theresa’s birthday and were flatly told NO.  No explanation was given and phone calls were not returned.  Hmmmmmm….

So let me get his straight.  We can celebrate the Chinese Cultural Revolution, sex, drugs and rock and roll but the achievements of a woman’s heroic fight against poverty and disease in the slums of India is a no-no?  What the heck is wrong with this picture???  Did somebody wake up on the wrong side of the bed that morning or what!
