"I'm sure God has much more important things to deal with, but it's nice to know Lindsay thinks she's got Him on her side."
In an AOL PopEater video, Rob Shuter talks about the court case of Lindsay Lohan where she is being charged of theft for a $2,500 necklace. According the video, Dina Lohan, Linday's mother, claims that "she's not worried about anything at all, because God has a big plan" for her daughter. Now, the validity of the story is questionable, but it's the last comment Shuter makes that has me in a sad mood. While playing a clip of Egypt in its current state, Shuter comments: "I'm sure God has much more important things to deal with, but it's nice to know Lindsay thinks she's got Him on her side." Yes, Egypt is in a particularly trying state at the moment. Yes, we should be encouraging them in their freedom. Yes, God is dealing with the situation. However, God loves each and every one of us, regardless of how popular we are, how sinful we are, how much has been said about us. God loves Lindsay Lohan just as much as He loves you and me and anyone else. Does God approve of Lindsay's current thievery and other decisions? No more than He approves of anyone else's (which is not at all). Certainly God isn't "letting her off the hook;" how much less is He encouraging her to do these things. But does God have more important things to deal with than her situation? Not any more than anyone else. The point is: God doesn't care about anything more than the people He created. Period.
