Mother Teresa to be honored everywhere but at the Empire State Building

You can tell a lot about a person or organization by watching how they resond to the the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa's birth. First, the US Postal Service is issuing this stamp honoring the greatest humanitarian of the 20th Century.Good for them, let's make sure these stamps sell out in record time!
Catholics for a Free Choice, and the rest of  the so-called Catholic pro-abortion groups however don't want to honor Mother. Its because her love of her fellow man extended to the unborn, the poorest of the poor, with few laws to protect them from death.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on what is taking place on August 26:
In honor of the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa's birthday, there will be celebrations the world over. From St. Peter's Cathedral in Belfast, Ireland to the Hutchinson Metro Center in the Bronx, blue and white (the colors of the Missionaries of Charity) will shine brightly. Billboards in Times Square will shine blue and nearby Hoboken will feature posters of Mother Teresa in several venues. Miami's entire skyline will be cast in blue and white, featuring the iconic Miami Tower. Brooklyn's Borough Hall will be aglow in blue and white, as will the USS Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
The Peace Bridge between Buffalo and Fort Erie, Ontario will light up, as will Buffalo's Electric Tower. Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas is on board as well. Moreover, we are hearing daily about events throughout Europe, including memorial initiatives from Switzerland to Bulgaria. Albania, Mother Teresa's birthplace, is pulling out all the stops.
Moreover, Catholic churches all over the nation are celebrating Mass in honor of Mother Teresa, and many are sporting blue and white ribbons. Furthermore, Resolutions honoring her have been passed by city councils, state legislatures and Catholic organizations.

In lone contrast to these tributes is Anthony Malkin, owner of the Empire State Building: he has decided not to light the towers blue and white for Mother Teresa. As a result, there will be a rally outside his trophy edifice on Thursday, starting at 6:00 p.m. It promises to be quite an event.

This is amazing. What a beautiful woman, and a wonderful example of the Faith lived "to the fullest":)

While I'm sorry about the Empire State Building, I'm not surprised about hearing it...Any person who would readily honor communism, truly would not understand or respect a woman like Mother Theresa...
