By now you've surely heard that Sandra Bullock and Jesse James are having marital problems.
Have you even been cheated on or betrayed? If so you probably know how broken and humiliated Sandra Bullock must feel right now. I've been there and I can honestly say that what she's going through must be so much worse. Why? Because in the name if entertainment, the rest of America is standing by with baited breath waiting to hear the sorted details that are breaking her heart. (I know there are those who'll say, "she's made her living by being a public figure" to which I'll reply, "she's made her living by being professionally--not to be confused with personally--public.")
Is something wrong here?
Of course it is. Our obsession with being in-the-know when it comes to other people's personal lives is disconcerting to me. Does it make us feel better to know that our lives aren't as crappy as theirs (or that their lives are as crappy as ours)? Why are we so obsessed with celebrity gossip?
So what do I think about Sandra Bullock? I think I need to pray for peace, healing, and restoration of her heart.
What do I think about her marriage with Jesse James? Nothing. It's none of my business.
Anyone else feeling a bit convicted about gossip?
