What a spectacle we have seen over the past week. Just think of all the money that was spent to make that funeral and the events leading up to it so special. It’s a shame that he will be going where ever he is going without a dime. Don’t get me wrong, I liked most of his music and no one can argue that he had talent. But something has been puzzling me.
Maybe it’s just me but there isn’t anyone on earth that I worship (these days) to the extent that I would make a pilgrimage to stand outside a building where a funeral is being held. I’m sorry but that is just the way I feel. Like I said he did have talent but he wasn’t a God and because he wasn’t a God he shouldn’t be worshiped like a God. And there have been others before him too.
And as for you who worship and adore him to the extent that you would build little shrines to him and travel thousands of miles at great expense just to be near his body, I have to wonder where your values lie. Just think how wonderful the world would be if you put that kind of effort into being a better person instead of worshiping false idols? And I didn’t even mention the negative things that he did. I’m just saying…
Have a great day.
