The Empire State Building will not light its towers tonight in honor of Pope Francis. Instead, it will acknowledge the opening night gala of the New York Philharmonic. In doing so, this decision by Anthony Malkin, the principal owner of the iconic building, shows his true colors once again: his disdain for Catholics is palpable.
Malkin is, of course, most known for stiffing Mother Teresa on the anniversary of her centenary. Now he’s stiffing Pope Francis and, by extension, all Catholics.
Malkin represents intolerance and disrespect for diversity. He is a disgrace to all New Yorkers.
