Casey Kasem, one of America's most beloved voices, has gone missing and his second wife is accused of keeping him from his friends and family. His religion has been a source of strength in the past.

  • V.E.G.

    I grew up with listening Casey Kasem’s voice and seeing him on television.

  • Tara Moore

    Clooney’s fiancee is not from America. Otherwise, great article.

    I find the stereotyping of anyone opposing Kasem’s anti-Israel activism as a “right winger” offensive and an example of the superficial, ideological one-dimensional thinking so prevalent among both left and right today. I’m saying that as a leftist Christian who supports Israel. And also as someone who loves Casey Kasem and prays for his safe return, and finds Debbie Schlussel’s remarks even more offensive and tasteless. Laura, we all need to rise above that.

  • Useful info. Fortunate me I uncovered your website accidentally, with this particular taken aback the reason why the following accident don’t occurred previously! My spouse and i bookmarked the idea.

  • Perry Coleman

    I remember him well watching America’s Top 40 and listening to him on the radio. I pray he was a Christian. I recall one of his famous lines when he ended his shows..”Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars”. Mourning brings healing. My best condolences to his family!

    If it is true about Kasems anti-Israeli bigotry & raising money for certain groups in America (I went & found & read that article by Schlussel whom I had never heard of before) then I have to say that Schlussel would be correct in her analysis.
    When I go back and compare her article to yours—I have to say you didn’t address her facts & points–rather you called her names……
    At least when Schlussel called Kasem names she based in on facts.
