Reader comment on item: King of Pop Michael Jackson and Black Converts to Islam

Submitted by Fred Calm (United States), Mar 7, 2006 at 13:04

Michael Jackson converting to Islam and wearing an abaya? Just the latest episode in a long-running freak show. Letterman, Conan, Jon Stewart and SNL's Weekend Update will have a lot of fun with it makes the headlines. Jocko's identity has been a source of confusion for him for some time -- Black? White? This just ups the ante.

The defenders of the faith of the religion of peace had no problem with Arafat's homosexuality, even if officially he died of a disease that has no name or poisoning by an indectable toxin at the hands of the Mossad -- definitely a lot more plausible than admitting he had AIDS.

Who wants to bet on whether they'll welcome him with open arms or protest his conversion as an affront to Islam?
