Wow! Want people to come to your blog...write about Michael Jackson!
I normally get on average between 120 to 140 visitors a blog post. Most don't comment but some send an email with their thoughts. My last blog on the New Age garbage generated 189 visitors, several pointed comments and a dozen nasty emails. I answered each and every one with sincerity and platitude...excuse me...gratitude for the expression of odious opinions.
Then Michael Jackson. After 214 visitors, several nasty comments (I only deleted 2 for offensive language), and 17 emails of differing opinions (only 4 in support...thanks guys!), I have a new visitor record for Tony C Today. I'm beaming with pride. Nothing like controversy to stir the soul.
For the record, I never stated a desire for Michael Jackson to 'burn in hell.' It's not there. Read the post again.
I was genuine in my statement of hope that Michael Jackson was right with God when he passed. And yes, it does matter...eternally.
Calling Christians 'bigots' is growing tired and insubstantial. True followers of Christ love everyone. Because we love you doesn't mean we have to agree with you. Need a reference? Check with my teenager whom I love with all my being.
This isn't a race issue. Period. My repulsion of child molesters is very equal opportunity. Also, my mention of O.J. Simpson was based solely on the documented ineptitude of the Los Angeles Police Department that botched solid cases against both men...very publicly.
I don't normally revisit a post to address comments or emails, but some of the statements were far off base of fact. If you loved an entertainment icon to the point of unreasonableness and delusion, you won't find Tony C Today very helpful.
The title of this post refers to the mispronounced closing words in Wanna Be Starting Somethin'. It seemed to fit.
