He was pretty cool when he sang for the Jackson 5, got a little weird as he got older though.

I love you, Michael. 


I know you are with the Lord now, and you are well.


Praise God.

I just hope this man is now at peace, cause it certainly did not appear that he had much peace when he was alive.  I think the man/boy was a musical genius, but lived a tormented life.

 All life is sacred, and the fall of this music superstar should lead us to pause in prayer:


O God of the universe, your Word says that you know your own.  No human can take from you what you have claimed.  I do not presume to know the spiritual state of the music superstar Michael Jackson who has just died this afternoon, whom many in the world loved.  O Lord, so much talent was given to Michael as a young man.  And the world acclaimed him.  We pray that he rest in peace.  It seems that in his earthly life, that he loved the glory he got from the world, and if he could have some of your glory, I suspect he would have reached for that too.  But I do not judge, O loving Father of all your creation including Michael.  He was but mortal, and a music superstar has fallen in our midst!  O God, comfort all who grieve.  Remind us of our mortality and to use our talents and time on this earth to love and to create things that glorify You and your kingdom, caring for all the children of your kingdom.  Amen.

OMG I am in shock he was so you and talented.


I want to remember you for all the good things you have done and never look back at the horrible scandles! You were such an awesome, wonderful and talented man that could make a person sing, dance and make you happy! Your light will never go out, you shine like the brightest star in the heavens...Shine on Michael, Shine on!


Until we meet again, you were amazing Michael!


Love and Peace


and may your Higher Power Give you the wings to fly your spirit on its new journey!


Always and Forever

I was never a big fan of his style of music but I can only hope he finds the peace that obviously eluded him in life.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

DUH!  Because they SAID SO.  Did you not go to the link I provided?  Did you not read the quoted snippet?  Open your eyes, clean your glasses, it's right there in black and white.


Ignore the scandals?  Kate, you sound like the bishops of the Catholic church!

And given that this was the only hospital in LA, many emergency victims must have died.  Oh, for Pete's sake!  Don't be absurd!  When we lived in the LA area, my daughter fell face first off of playground equipment and bit all the way through her lip.  Her face and shirt were covered in blood.  We had to go to THREE emergency centers, because all of them were so busy.  My daughter's case was not that critical, but she clearly needed medical attention ASAP, and we were taken care of.  Whether the doors of that hospital were barred, or the halls were lined with the victims of one huge car accident (as they were in one of the hospitals I went to with my daughter), emergency care is available SOMEwhere in the LA area.  How much care could be given to genuine emergency victims in MJ's case, if the halls were blocked by curiosity seekers and paparazzi?


As to the scandals, you're certainly right that being cleared of charges, however completely, does not necessarily equate with innocence.  However, charges filed do not necessarily equate with guilt, as you are claiming.  Whether he did anything at all to those kids, he is facing a judge who knows exactly what happened, and he is enduring whatever consequences that perfect judge deems appropriate. 


You've always struck me as reasonable, TMarie, don't let your hatred of MJ cloud that reason.

Me, too.  There was one seriously damaged human.  I hope he finally knows, and likes, who he is.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

Not genius enough to cause seriously ill people to die or be further harmed because they COULD NOT GET INTO THE DAMN E.R.


He wasn't a head of state, a religious leader, an ambassador.... he was an unhappy, twisted individual who could sing.


His pedophilia is a whole 'nother thread.  Not being convicted does not equate innocence.....




I agree that not being convicted does not equate to innocence, We already have one high profile case of an acquitted murderer i.e. OJ.


 


I guess it is OK to be a pedophile as long as you are a rock star - or a catholic priest.
