Katy Perry’s Father Wants to ‘Save’ Media, Preaches Anti-Semitic Sermon
When Katy Perry said that "no one speaks for her," it was for good reason. The pop tart's father, Keith Hudson, has come under fire for preaching about his daughter's divorce, as well as something more sinister. Hudson recently went on an anti-Semitic rant during a recent sermon, something that likely won't sit well with Perry's diverse fan base.
In a new video acquired by TMZ, Hudson jokes about the press presence at his ministry's latest stop. "I know Bishop asked all the first time visitors to stand, but I'd like to ask all the press to stand," he said, cackling. "I know you're not going to stand anyway. Just kidding, we want to locate you," he laughed. "We want to get you saved, so you can write good stuff! Amen!"
"We've had to deal with the press for a while here recently," Hudson continued, "and I asked the Lord about it. I said, 'What about the press?' and he told me, 'Son, I had it in my day.'" Hudson goes on about his divine dialogue. "I said, 'Really? Give me scripture,' and He said, 'I couldn't get in for the press.'"
While we're quite not sure what he meant by the last statement, we do know that part of why Hudson has had to "deal with the press" is because he's been using his daughter's name to garner more parishioners -- so now that he has them, he doesn't necessarily have room to complain about their professions.
What's more alarming is a recent article in the Sun, which reveals Hudson to have a bone to pick with people practicing Judaism. (Please be warned: His comments are incredibly inappropriate and disturbing.) At a recent sermon in Westlake, Ohio, the Sun reports Hudson as going on a brief tirade reinforcing Jewish stereotypes. "You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey," Hudson was reported as saying. "You go to L.A. and they own all the Rolex and diamond places. Walk down a part of L.A. where we live and it is so rich it smells," he continued. "You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah. Amen."
Hudson's hate speech was part of a sermon in which he once more milked his daughter's fame. "People say 'How is it you have a daughter raised in the church and she sang 'I kissed a girl and liked it'?" Hudson said. "I say 'I don't know'."
We can't speak for Perry, but we think it's safe to assume her father's conduct isn't making her heart happy again.
