You don't worship the dead either.....

Michael made all his own choices. He got messed up because of them. Just another ordinary weirdo.

What if the wrenched fameoid is being deified. Should we still keep silent?

Many people who believe, actually do so for want of a justification tool, and as a psychological convenience.

you spoke ill of the dead who cannot defend themselves

Yeah, about a guy who shagged little boys who could not defend themselves.

I don't pray for child molesters.

So I shouldn’t speak ill of Hitler, Mao or Stalin?

While true that our sins are equal in God’s eyes, I don’t intend to freak out at the passing of a mentally ill man.

I will say that the picture I saw yesterday of Michael Jackson inside a Publix that closed so he could walk around and ‘put things in a shopping cart like regular people’ kind of broke my heart.

So are we to praise Hilter, Stalin and Mao? What about Saddam Hussein? Ted Bundy?

Speaking truth, at any time, is no vice. One needn’t be vicious about it, though.

I’m of the opinion that as a rule one should show consideration to the family of the deceased. However if no one ever spoke ill of the dead how could history ever be realistically taught? That devils like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were humanitarians who delivered the goods?

What about making a dead person an idol? Is that all right?

Imagine yourself standing on the edge of The Endless Sea of Drivel, wave after wave of pompous and inane commentary dashing against the rocky cliffs of our patience. And another Mindless Bloggi'er crawls out of The Murky Depths (can you bore me now?) to regurgitate the notion that the newly and notably dead have been hallowed by puffing their last misused breath.

Ahhhh, the cleansing effects of dropping temperature upon The Morally Twisted! Let's all put on our sequined latex gloves and give him our salute of The Grabbing of the Crotch. (white face paint optional).

This article is entirely off the mark.

The issue was never with a quiet, family memorial of Michael Jackson.

The issue was a national slobberfest in which MJ and his behavior was normalize...no, worse, it was promoted.

In the face of any effort to normalize pedophilia, honest people must respond. Sad that THE MSM forced a necessity to tell the truth.
