Okay, let's start by saying that this is probably bunk (about the suicides), but I wanted to point out a quote from a so-called "minister." First the link:
Grieving Jackson Fans 'Commit Suicide' - Yahoo! News UK
Now the quote:
Jesse Jackson, a friend of the singer, has recorded a YouTube film on the site urging fans not to "self destruct".
He said: "This is a time when hearts are heavy. There is great pain but great cause to celebrate Michael's life.
"It made Michael happy saying 'We Are The World'. Don't self destruct.
"We fall down sometimes, we get back up. That's the right thing to do. In Michael's name let's live together as brothers and sisters and not die apart as fools."
Does anyone seriously think that Jesse Jackson is a Christian minister when he talks this way? "In Michael's name"?
"In Michael's name:"?
