One of my favorite religious sayings is “Judge not, lest ye be judged,” though I usually mean it in a light-hearted way. Still, it comes to mind now, as we see the frenzy of outrage over “Tot Mom” Casey Anthony’s not guilty verdict, and speculation on whether she’ll be getting some kind of divine justice instead, assuming she actually did kill her daughter Caylee.
Check out the Rev. Alan Rudnick’s column: What we are guilty of in Casey Anthony’s case.
Urban Christian News has a different take on this, though.
The Christian Post, which has covering the trial from a (duh) Christian perspective, wrapped things up with this Twitter-based reaction piece listing shocked tweets from Pastor Rick Warren and others.
Otherwise, there’s been relatively scant faith-related coverage so far, but check out this column from National Catholic Reporter: My take on the Casey Anthony verdict.
Meanwhile, guess I’d better shelve my “Casey Anthony Loves Scott Peterson” reality TV show pitch. There’s always my other ideas: Dirtbag Island (featuring Anthony Weiner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Edwards, John Ensign and other philandering politicians) and StageDad Manor (starring the fathers of Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Beyonce, etc.).
