Catholic League Upset Empire State Building To 'Stiff' Cardinal Dolan

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - The Catholic League's Bill Donohue is still steamed over the Empire State Building refusing to honor Mother Teresa and he says it's not surprising that they're going to "stiff" the newly elevated Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

WCBS 880's Rich Lamb On The Story


"There's no question that they're much more at home honoring mass murderers there at the Empire State Building and I'm not being facetious. They honored Mao Zedong and others for the 60th anniversary of the Communist Revolution here a few years ago, who took with him 77 million innocent Chinese men, women, and children," Donohue told WCBS 880 reporter Rich Lamb.

Donohue says the building's refusal to honor Cardinal Dolan does not detract one iota from the celebration.

"It did detract from the celebrations of Mother Teresa back in 2010, but we've kind of gotten used to the fact that they are die hard secularists there at the Empire State Building," sad Donohue.

He added that they will take this in stride.
