    Fox news is only reporting that he is in the hosptial. They specifically said they will NOT rely on webs for confirmation.

    Fox has talked to Jacksons father.

    Oops ..... about my link.

    MSNBC is quoting the LA TIMES and LA TIMES is quoting TMZ, a hollywood gossip blog....

    .... so, doesn't anyone else have some credible information?

    MSNBC is reporting it.. so take it for what that's worth. :laugh:

    In the early 80's I was teaching a group of teenagers about seeing ourselves as God sees us as opposed to the world's idea of beauty. So I started by asking the girls to name a good looking man. The answer came "Michael Jackson". then i asked the guys to name a good looking woman, and a voice in the back yelled out "Michael Jackson". The guys all laughed, but the girls were horrified.:laugh:

    I was a big fan ..... a good while back. Now, whenever I think of him, I flounder between being angry at him and praying for his salvation.

    All I can do know is pray for his children's salvation.

    The news is reporting what a great person Michael Jackson was.

    It's amazing how wonderful people become once they're dead. Yesterday he was known for being a pedophile.

    I was thinking the same thing. Can you imagine making the best selling record and being so famous around the world.....and die without Christ ready to receive you?

    What a waste. He was immensely talented and immensely troubled.

    I doubt the guy was ever happy. He couldn't even get comfortable with his appearance.

    At best, his personal life was a complete mess, at worst (and probably much more likely), it was perverted, abusive and destructive.

    Why are all of these media outlets not using his chosen Muslim name of Mikaeel?

    He was acquitted. Do you have inside info to confirm otherwise?

    So you feel qualified to judge? He may or may not have been, but he is now dead. I do know that false claims are brought against celebrities to gain money by disreputable people. I will stand with our justice system's decision.
