Khloe Kardashian Discusses Religion, Spirituality & Divorce
She may be constantly giving out sex tips and making innuendo filled jokes on camera, but Khloe Kardashian also has a spiritual side. Growing up attending church with her family, Khloe says she has always been a spiritual being and has learnt to embrace all religions and be a tolerant, accepting person:
“I’ve always been a very spiritual person. I believe with every fiber of my being that there is a higher power. I love theology and I enjoy learning about other people’s religions. I’ve read about Buddhism and the Quran, and I’ve gone to Seder dinners with Jewish friends. One of my exes was Muslim and observed Ramadan, which is a month of fasting. You fast from sunrise to sunset to commemorate the first time the Quran was revealed to Muhammad, and I practiced it with him to be supportive. I don’t believe you need to be a certain religion to embrace someone else’s religion. It’s a matter of respecting someone. I’m a Christian but I don’t think a church necessarily makes you religious.”
Khloe says while she has some religion beliefs, she’s not about judging people especially when it comes to what other people might believe in. She says she doesn’t understand people who do pass those kinds of judgements:
“Believing in a higher power is what guides me to make the right decisions. While I believe in heaven and hell and angels and spirits, I don’t judge people for their beliefs. And I don’t understand how others can sit around casting judgments on people because they have different religions and a certain point of view.”
Speaking on the subject of divorce, Khloe says it’s not something she actually believes in and the only reason she decided to divorce Lamar was for her own health and well-being in the end. She explained her opinion on the subject:
“I’ve been blessed with a lot in my life, and I’ve also had challenges. It was a challenge for me when I decided to get divorced. At my core, I don’t believe in divorce, but I came to a point in my marriage where I had to make the choice to take care of my own mental and emotional well-being in order to protect myself and my happiness. I am at peace with that decision and do feel like I honored my vows to the very end. I feel that I kept the serious vows I made in front of God with every inch of my heart, which is why I am still honoring them today even though my relationship with my ex-husband is in a different place. I believe in caring for my partner — past or present — “in sickness and in health,” and feel at peace with my relationship with God even after the fact. I’m thankful that I can rely on my God, who, along with my family, has led me through some of the most difficult times of my life.
