Protest over Empire State lighting heats up

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Day 8 of the protest campaign on behalf of Mother Teresa:

Today I am writing to the U.S. bishops in the Midwest notifying them that Anthony Malkin, the owner of the Empire State Building, has decided not to overrule those who have chosen to deny a tribute to Mother Teresa: our request to have the towers shine blue and white, the colors of her congregation, on August 26th, the 100th anniversary of her birth (and the day the U.S. Postal Service is honoring her with a commemorative stamp), was denied without explanation. Yet the same persons who chose to stiff Mother Teresa decided to honor the Chinese Communist revolution last year, even though 77 million innocent men, women and children were murdered under Mao Zedong.
Sign the petition to light The Empire State Building in honor of Mother Teresa here.

Everyone is being asked to sign our petition (click here), and to write to Anthony Malkin. His address is

It is noteworthy how a deceased, 4 ft. 10" woman who never did anything else but comfort societies undesirables is such a threat but Chinese Communists aren't. The big fear here is that people will see God through her.

Keep up the Great Work, Leticia.
