(A mini article published in Danish TV)

The hysteria following the death of Michael Jackson seems to be endless.  There are good reasons why we should mourn for a talent once so handsome but soon in free fall as a wreck of a man.

And so the posthumous worship of him is absurd.  If his light is still flickering  it´s more like a solemn warning signal to our disillusioned youth to whom the pop culture has become a substitute religion without any solid foundation.  Michael Jackson knew that from own sad experience.

A Danish so called ”Christian” newspaper points out that M.J. was after all a religious man and could write and sing about God, and so that paper takes part in the tribute paid to the ”king of pop”.

However, he was a sad, sad tragedy.  So why go in for a tragedy?  There is a spiritual alternative not to be found in Michael Jackson´s pseudo-religion or pseudo-god, but in the true God whom the Fathers of the U.S. and our country once worshiped in humility and stillness, not on a noisy pop stage with self-destructive drug abusers.
