I was originally hesitant in creating this thread, doubtful about its success. But I decided to it. Anyway, I know a lot of people are annoyed at the excessive Michael Jackson coverage and some are annoyed rightfully so. Yet, in this coverage, I could not help but think that Michael was being deified. And any deification of a human being is inherently excessive. But in contrast to the media, I wanted to put Michael Jackson in context. What exactly does that mean? Well I was hoping to recognize and give God credit for producing someone like Michael Jackson.
I would kindly ask if some people—fans or not, would express some of their memories or even discuss the current coverage, or basically anything Michael Jackson, but here’s the catch—in context. The only real restriction I put on is no unkind comments about Michael Jackson (that should be a given for people striving to perfect Christian charity). I know there are a lot of '80’s kids here that were affected by Michael Jackson in school. Maybe start about how you were affected at that time. I loved read about it. Thank you.
