I will admit it readily. I have no idea who Kim Kardashian is. I have no idea to whom she is married. I don’t really care that I don’t know.

Maybe she made a silly marriage. Maybe everyone around them knew that it wasn’t going to last. But I find it hard to believe that Kim or her future ex went into marriage intending to get divorced. This is a couple in pain. Divorce – no matter how short the marriage – is painful.

But this picture has been floating around the web, and it really bothers me.









I’m sure she’s famous. I’m sure that she has done things that are easy to make fun of. But really? Using her divorce to make a point about the gay marriage issue? It’s ugly. It’s unkind. It’s disappointing.

I thought the gay marriage fight was supposed to be about the right to love and commit to whomever we chose. It’s about the right to make our own choices – whether they are good and wise choices or not.

If this is the way that the gay marriage debate is going to go, then I’m not sure I’m interested in being a part of it.

I’m sure that Kim will never read my blog, but I will say anyway what we should all be thinking: I”m sorry. I’m sorry if your heart is breaking. I’m sorry your dreams of forever didn’t come true this time. I hope that you will heal and find love again and choose wisely. Breaking up is hard, and you deserve better than being made fun of.
