    Yes not everyone is religious, but Whitney was. She went to church and believed in God. He clearly said for HIM, he thought is was appropriate. You could have changed the channel before he started. GET OVER IT.

    @mkhay: Like everyone else said, it was simply LL’s way of saying “goodbye”. Everyone else has been and will do the same at some point. Stop being so critical and judgmental.
