Do you remember, last September, the Empire State Building in New York City was shone in red and yellow lights to honor the 60th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Revolution? This Chinese Communist government is the same government that killed its own people in the Tiananmen square massacre of 1989.
The same government whose leader, Mao Zedong, killed 77 million people. The same government that only allows one child per family, and enforces the law by forced abortion.
The Empire State Building organization has been asked to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Mother Teresa's birthday by shining the colors of blue and white. And what is their answer? NO! Wake up America - there is a sickness in our country - we are headed down the wrong path. Political correctness is a disease - we have to find the cure.
U.S. BISHOPS IN THE NORTHEAST CONTACTED; MOTHER TERESA CAMPAIGN CONTINUES
May 19, 2010
Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Day 6 of the protest campaign on behalf of Mother Teresa:
Today I am writing to the U.S. bishops in the Northeast 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.
Everyone is being asked to sign our petition (click here), and to write to Anthony Malkin. His address is Malkin Properties, One Grand Central Place 60, E. 42nd St., NY, NY 10165.
