Empire State Building declines to honor Mother Teresa
Building has policy against religious observances
The Empire State Building in New York City has declined to observe what would have been Mother Teresa's 100th birthday in August. It's left a lot of the nun's followers out in the cold - and they plan to quietly protest the policy.
Outside of lightings for Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah and Eid al-Fitr (the end of Ramadan), the Empire State Building "has a specific policy against any other lighting for religious figures or requests by religions and religious organizations."
