October 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – We live in strange times. The Vatican recently hosted a pagan ritual. A thrice-married New York real estate mogul is doing more to protect unborn babies than any president before him has. And Kim Kardashian just educated her 149 million Instagram followers about God’s grace.
The celebrity and her children were baptized into the Armenian Apostolic Church at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, one of the oldest churches in the world. She posted 10 photos of the event on Instagram, which show her and her daughter North wearing gorgeous veils, Kim lighting a candle, and priests in traditional Orthodox vestments.
Kardashian’s husband Kanye West, meanwhile, indicated during recent appearances at Howard University and George Washington University that he “got saved this year” and was there to “spread the Gospel.”
The duo has an enormous amount of influence over American pop culture. Unfortunately, in the past that influence has promoted the anti-human dignity and often deadly practice of in-vitro fertilization and the exploitative practice of surrogacy. Both treat babies as commodities.
That Kim and her kids were baptized in an ancient rite in an ancient church is a big deal. We should pray for their whole family and give thanks for their having entered Christianity.
