When people hear news about the Kardashian family they often think of their vulgarity, hyper-sexuality, and negative influence on youth. But this year, a few of the sisters have been more vocal about their religious beliefs. In a recent taping for her lifestyle website Poosh, Kourtney Kardashian spoke with her pastors, Chad and Julia Veach, about ways she can teach her children about Christianity without forcing her beliefs on them.
“How do you teach your kids about religion and what we believe in? You don't want to force your own beliefs on them but how do you?” Kourtney asked her pastors in a video posted to YouTube on Aug. 16.
She told the Los Angeles-based Zoe Church leaders that her late father, former celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian, made it a point to raise his children in the Christian faith.
“We grew up always hearing Bible stories. My dad read us Bible stories and we would talk about it in the car; we would listen to Bible songs, we went to Sunday school, not every Sunday but a lot,” she said. “So I just wonder if there's something you guys do or that’s really important to you, like routines or things that you do with your own family that could be helpful.”
Kourtney was also among the first to publicly share the religious beliefs behind her brother-in-law's Sunday Service events. Kanye West's Sunday Service takes place every weekend and features a gospel choir.
“It’s Christian,” Kourtney announced on Jimmy Kimmel's show in April. She emphasized that they even sing West’s hit song, “Jesus Walks.”
The rapper’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, was a guest on “The View” on Sept. 10 where she spoke about her husband's religious beliefs and revealed that he sometimes hosts pop-up churches around the country through his “music ministry,” Sunday Service.
“Kanye started this to really heal himself and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family,” Kardashian West told host Sunny Hostin who asked about the religious events. “He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.”
“People always ask, ‘What are you worshiping?’ It is a Christian service, like a musical ministry. They talk about Jesus and God,” she added.
