John Calvin's Birthday and Celebrity Veneration

As the Christian world has officially celebrated the man who was John Calvin on the 500th anniversary of his birthday, I only have one question and comment related to the whole ordeal.

What good does it do to scratch your head and comment about the reverence given to a dead entertainer (ie. Michael Jackson) when we've managed to execute the exact same idolatry for a man who has not only been dead for 400+ years, but also to plan the idolatry years in advance?
