Lindsay Lohan Turns to Kabbalah (Or Is It Crap-Balah?)

Wrong religion for the analogy, but yes, she is reportedly  turning to religion. The one of her choice: Kabbalah.

Of course, it would have to be a trendy one practiced by the likes of Madonna and Demi Moore. Aren't there any Lutherans in Hollywood? But really, good for her; nothing else has worked so it can't hurt. The question is: Can LiLo be saved, or is she just trying to save her ass?

Friends told Life & Style magazine that she's serious about saving her soul:

She's been reciting an ancient kabbalah saying... and spreading the (faith's) message to friends. The saying is a Hebrew-language mantra used by a spin-off group of the Na Nachs - a group of dancing Jews dedicated to bringing joy to others.

It's not the first time she's considered Kabbalah, however. In 2005, she told the magazine:

I am looking into it. All of us need something. You have to grab on to whatever gets you through.

Since that time, she's grabbed a lot of booze, drugs, necklaces, and clothes, but hey, no one is perfect.

While some have criticized the type of Kabbalah many celebrities embrace, calling it "crap-balah," if it gives Lindsay something to believe in then it really doesn't matter what it is as long as it's positive. She clearly doesn't believe in herself or her future enough to make good choices.

Of course, my Doubting Thomas side also thinks it's pretty coincidental that news of her enlightenment is coming out on the day she's headed back to court. But if it doesn't convince the judge that she's seen the light, at least perhaps she can truly find solace in it as she sits in jail for months to come.

Do you think the Kabbalah can save Lindsay Lohan?
