    Rihanna and Chris Brown: The Value of Love & Forgiveness


    I am a bit disturbed by the reports that Rihanna has decided to end her relationship with R&B superstar Chris Brown. Just a few weeks ago, she had not only forgiven the love of her life but was refusing to grant testimony to overly zealous D.A. Donald Etra. This is sad indeed and quite hypocritical of Rihanna who declares in the lyrics to her smash hit single “Umbrella”:


    When the sun shines, we'll shine together
    Told you I'll be here forever
    Said I'll always be a friend
    Took an oath I'm ‘a stick it out till the end


    It is most disappointing that Ms. Fentry has decided to void her oath. I was initially quite proud that she was one of the few celebrities out there espousing Christian values instead of defecating on them like Lady GaGa or that guy who sings “You’re Beautiful”. There was much Biblical foundation for her initial decision to forgive Brown (Matthew 18:21-22; Luke 6:37; Mark 11:25), a fact I fear will be obscured to young Christian girls in light of Rihanna’s Indian giving.


    I guess that it is times like this when parents just have to be parents and talk to their children about these issues. In doing so, it is vital that you stress to your daughters that the way their boyfriends make them feel is absolutely irreplaceable and nobody else will ever make them feel the same. Others may come close but it will never ever be as good. That of course assumes that they are lucky enough to even find someone else, mediocre as they may be. As we all know, there are scores of women who have died old and alone never again having experienced love of any kind. That my friends is surely worse than any beating one would have to endure.


    To those who want to start throwing around statistics allegedly correlating domestic abuse and murder, I would like to point out that your poster-child Nicole Brown-Simpson might still be alive today if she had forgiven her husband instead of selfishly divorcing him over “irreconcilable differences”.

    I pray that Rihanna will reconsider her decision and forgive so that she too may be forgiven.

  • I think I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one.

    Forgiving is important, yes. But not using physical violence is also important. If you don't make people have consequences for their actions when they've done you wrong, you'll continue to be used, or abused, or whatever the case may be.

    I'm glad she's leaving him. No one should have to put up with being beaten up, not even once. 

  • ...please tell me this is a joke.

  • @Lucky_Loser_Fish - I wish I were joking. Unfortunately there are several sources confirming that Rihanna has indeed split with Chris. So sad. When you turn your back on love you only end up hurting yourself in the end.

  • @SKANLYN - Right, I'm sure leaving Chris Brown is as rough on Rihanna as the nature of the punches he threw at her.  It is sad, because women really should stay with abusive men just to prevent any further bruises (sometimes even death...I mean, who wants that, right?) 

    Sigh, I wish I were lucky enough to have parents who instilled such good morals and high standards.  But, alas, I happen to be one of the unfortunate who realizes that men are just as easily replaceable as a roll of toilet paper.

  • @Lucky_Loser_Fish - Call me old fashioned but I believe if you make a vow while dancing very erotically with a phallic symbol, you are obligating yourself to that vow. I'm just saying

  • @SKANLYN - "Hey, she want that lovey dovey
    That kiss, kiss
    In her mind she fantasize 'bout gettin' with me

    They hatin' on me
    They wanna diss, diss
    Because she mine and so fine, thick as can be"

    I guess Rihanna no longer wants that lovey dovey, that kiss kiss from Chris Brown.  So sad.

  • You share interesting things here. I think that your
    page can go viral easily, but you must give it initial boost and
    i know how to do it, just type in google - mundillo traffic increase

  • Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout
    and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  • It's impressive that you are getting thoughts from this piece of writing as well
    as from our dialogue made here.

  • I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your
    site. It appears like some of the text within your content are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've
    had this happen previously. Kudos

  • Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • I've been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I never found any fascinating article

  • Thanks very interesting blog!

  • When someone writes an piece of writing he/she
    keeps the idea of a user in his/her brain that how
    a user can be aware of it. Thus that's why this article is great.

  • When I initially left a comment I appear to
    have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.

    Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thank you!
