Going to a Christian college in Santa Barbara, it was hard to escape the shadow of Katy Perry. Every third person had known her growing up–they were in elementary school together, or sang in the same church choir, or took dance classes together. I even ended up at the same party as her sister once, […]

    I’m afraid that if your conclusion is based on the last Perry quote the primary indication is that scripture hasn’t left her.

    Why not leave out the word on her quote? Thought this would be a place I could safely look at with my daughter reading over my shoulder. My first visit to your site is disappointing – how sad that you are not better than the rest of the Internet.

    Her JUDGE is GOD alone, just as it is with any of the rest of us. Only God truly k nows her heart. Love her anyways….just like YOU want to be loved.

    Even satan can quote scriptures! and tweak it just enough to sound biblical! She said, Pride comes before a fall.What is written is” Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.!
    I’ve seen some interviews and she does not profess God to others but denounces it .And it is written:
    Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven.
    And she isn’t doing that ,matter of facts she says:
    “I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, –

    That is the subject of this story and if you leave God or the word out,then you are listening to what she said,She attempted to quote the scriptures? She isn’t someone who I would want my daughter to have as a roll model look at Millie Cyrus! wasn’t she Hanna Montana !
    I used to take my daughter to concerts and stood in line for hours waiting on a bracelet to come back the next day and purchase a ticket,until she started believing the teen Idols were good Roll models,And each time they changed and I couldn’t support them any more! Not judging ,discerning there’s a difference!

    Still think she’s secretly folllowing the word after bringing Baphomet onto the Grammys and being burned alive with a Knights Templar Cross on her chest?

    I think people should leave famous people alone….God is her judge. I pray she comes back to her faith in God 100% some day. She has made mistakes but is a great young lady.

    Actually Katy read many secular books growing up, even winning the first grade reading prize at Paradise Valley Christian School in Arizona. When I was a reporter in the 70ties & early 80ties & we were required to print both sides of the story. Nowadays it is one side and that is usually hearsay. You can condemn a person for what they are doing, but not even God did that when he sent Jesus to earth in John 3:16. Everyone has a chance to repent and it Is His love, not your judgment, that draws them.
