They don’t have a prayer

November 21, 2012

So, Kim Kardashian had to apologize for comments that she made on Twitter.  And you might be thinking, “ and this is worthy of a Penn?”  Well yeah, because of what she had tweeted.  It appears that Kardashian had the audacity to post “Praying for everyone in Israel,” and she followed that with, “Praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!”  The reaction from her almost 17 million followers (which could be a whole Penn on its own) was overwhelmingly negative. 
It seems that the reality TV show star can talk about fashion and what she has for breakfast but that she stepped over the line with her comments about her prayer life.  Ms.  Kardashian not only received negative, obscenity laced responses but also had several death threats.  I don’t know if it was because she was planning on praying for Israel or for Palestine.  Wow!  She probably should take the threats serious, after all, it was teaching like Matthew 5:44 “But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” that got Jesus killed.
And as Christ Followers we are still supposed to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us and maybe even tweet about it.     Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
