The earlier article on Walker drew an unfortunate amount of comments criticizing him for leaving the lds church -- at least one person quoted teachings that seemed to say that Hollywood people and others choose fame and fortune over God.
--- That seems awfully harsh, especially if you remember that his parents put him into show business as a baby modelling Pampers.

Who is any of us to say that a man, although imperfect, who did many good things -- as this article suggests, is to be dismissed or condemned for leaving a church? In fact, did anyone document whether he left it on his own, or his parents left when he was young?

Perhaps he learned good values while lds, and perhaps he learned even more later.
I don't know, but I was unpleasantly surprised to see church members picking over the fate of those who leave, especially right after the man tragically died.

I hope that his inspiration causes others to continue his charities.

I don't think any of us are in a position to judge this man. He has obviously done many wonderful things with his time and money. If he made mistakes or different choices than what WE may think are right well that is not our place to judge either. I hope no one judges me for what I might have done differently without knowing me as a person. Rest in peace Paul Walker. My condolences to the family.

Paul Walker may have been LDS and quit being active, or whatever, but at least I never saw him show up on some tabloid story where he was engaging in the type of debauchery so common in much of Hollywood today. He seemed like a really good guy, especially considering the kind of world his work put him in. Sadly ironic that his death came right after he was involved in charity work.
