I don't think he's saying nothing is holy, but that everything is. Even humanity and civilization with all it's sins and failings is still holy and beautiful. That is what the holy section means to me. Look even at the rest of the poem. He glorifies the grotesque, and joyfully speaks of things most dare not even think of.
Ginsberg was a genius.
