Empire State building refuses to honor Mother Teresa

This year Mother Teresa would have turned 100 years old. The Empire State building is refusing to honor her legacy. They have no intentions of changing their lights to blue and white in honor of her birthday.
I personally think this is wrong. From what I understand, the Pope has been honored. What is the problem with honoring her ? Mother Teresa was a great humanitarian, a true follower of Christ and a Nobel Peace Prize winner for her remarkable work. This is not about idolozing the person but rather about reminding others about her kindness and love for the poor and the forgotten.

What do you think ? Do you think that too much emphasis is being put on honoring her or anyone else for that matter ? Or do you think it is wrong that she will not be honored on what would have been her 100th birthday ?  I want to know what you think.

  1. Posting comment on behalf of reader who is having difficulty commenting from her computer:
    "Xela you hit the nail on the head; she was a true follower of Christ. Never idolizing but remember someone who did so much for others. She was quite a remarkable woman who always die for others rather than for herself. Not exciting enought to be remembered I suppose.
    I was unaware the Pope was "in lights" ... the problem is that "good" people do not make news. Things such as half naked advertisements are a much better pick to soothe the salacious appetitie of our decaying society where it is not cool to remember Mother Teresa for her endless workd for the poor but instead to make room for Lady Gaga from stage and center so that everyone who wants to look has a clear view of all she is as an artist, etc..
    Don't get me wrong, I am not "anti-Gaga" ...it's just that wholesom people don't appeal to the masses." Mom2006
