Lindsay Lohan Uses Good Friday Excuse to Skip Court Hearing: Isn't That a Sin?

Lindsay Lohan red carpetAll the haters who say Lindsay Lohan is just another unrepentant starlet take note: LiLo (or is she just "Lindsay" now?) is feeling so sorry for her sins that her lawyer asked a judge to change the date of a hearing scheduled for this Friday, which just happens to be Good Friday. Lindsay plans to observe the Christian holiday in the traditional fashion, apparently, remembering the crucifixion of Christ and spending hours on her knees (in prayer, of course!).

I'm willing to give Lindsay the benefit of the doubt on this one, because, well, it's What Jesus Would Do. Let us not forget that the Son of God was known to hang out with prostitutes and tax collectors -- essentially, the Lindsays and Charlie Sheens of biblical times. And then there was Mary Magdalene ... putting aside the highly-contentious possibility that the Savior and the original Hooker With a Heart of Gold had a little something going on the side, Jesus still let the woman wash his feet. With her hair.

Remember, one of this guy's catchphrases was "judge not, lest ye yourself be judged" (almost as catchy as "duh, winning!"). So hey, if Lindsay says she wants to go to church instead of court, I'm not going to pull a doubting Thomas and demand she prove her sincerity.

I'm not even going to bring up that little issue of Lindsay's reported conversion to Judaism for ex-GF Samantha Ronson. Jesus was a Jew, after all.

Do you think Lindsay really wants to go to church?
