"As a lifelong fan of Michael Jackson, I thought that I had seen and heard every nasty, disgusting, and despicable comment about him that exists in the English language, but I was wrong! A few months ago, I stumbled upon a video of a Christian pastor bashing MJ in a horrible way, and his “research” was filled with lies, innuendoes, and tabloid gossip. I was baffled at what I heard, and I quickly decided to write a rebuttal to him. While doing my research, I decided to expand my rebuttal to include other attacks against MJ from the religious community, whether they’re from religious websites, bloggers, etc., and whether it’s from Christians, Jews, Muslims, etc. Nothing could prepare me for the things that I read and heard about MJ from people who espouse “love thy neighbor” in one breathe, and then turn around and call MJ a “child molesting, plastic surgery freak!” in the next breath! Sometimes I didn’t know if I was reading a religious blog, TMZ, or Topix (a popular forum for MJ haters)!"
