Thousands Sign Petition Protesting Empire State Building's Snub of Mother Teresa

Sept. 9, 2009: The Empire State Building is lit in red and yellow to honor the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China in this photo taken from across the East River in the Queens borough of New York.
A nationwide petition has been launched by the Catholic League after the Empire State Building denied a request to commemorate Mother Teresa's 100th birthday.Bill Donohue, president of the New York-based Catholic civil rights organization, submitted an application to the Empire State Building Lighting Partners in February to have the skyscraper feature blue and white lights -- the colors of Mother Teresa's congregation -- on Aug. 26 to commemorate her centennial. The request was denied without explanation last week, and more than 6,000 people have signed a protest petition in just one day, Donohue told FoxNews.com."I'd like to find out what's driving this," he said. "But I'm confident it's just a matter of time before we win on this thing"...
PS:Total bias...they can change the colors for China,for muslims,for enviro wackos,but they cannot honour the memory of this tiny lil woman that loved people so much that pulled them out of the streets,from trash bins and helped saved so many from sure death in India...what a shame...
As in the days of Noah...
