Katy Perry's Pastor Father Apologizes For Anti-Semitic Comments

| Filed under: Sad SadKaty Perry

Comments he feels were misconstrued.

Katy Perry's father is in the news this week, not because he's taken a stance on his daughters impending divorce, but because he made some comments recently at an Ohio church that were deemed anti-semitic. According to reports, Keith Hudson, an evangelical minister, took his preaching too far when he made a off-kileter remark to his congreationg about the Jewish community. He was quoted as saying:

“You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey. 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. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah! Amen.”

Yeah, we could see where people would have a problem with that.

After several religious organizations came forward to the press to make their stance known on his sermin, Keith issued an apology for his “hurtful and ugly language,” and added in a statement:

“I used images about Jews rooted in the worst anti-Semitism in the past, images that at times led to the persecution and murder of Jews. I can’t tell you where I picked up phrases and descriptions that became part of my vocabulary. I used them without ever considering what they meant.”

Glad he has seen the light, so to speak. You can check out the video (above) to hear Keith speak in his own words about his comments and get some feedback from some of the religious groups that took offense to his words.

Sometimes, people really do forgot the power just a few choice words can have.

    When did he make those comments? As someone who has his lines down pat for the media, "I have changed my ways. I am no longer a bully.", one would think you would be the first to forgive and not bother to publish such slander.

  2. 2

    Unfortunately, Once you say it, you cant take it back. If you say it, it pretty much is how your really feel! I don't know. This is going to be a tough one to clean up, especially coming from a man of god! I think the only way i will be able to forgive this is if Katy has sex with me. Yeah… I think that would do it!!

    The Jews DO OWN all the gold & diamond stores in Los Angeles; so revealing that makes them anti-semantic….DIRTY JEWS AT IT AGAIN!

    bunch of Christian hypocrites! he's a pastor yet his "religious" daughter sings about kissing a woman and walks around half naked…did I mentioned she's divorcing?

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing – what's wrong with being successful when you work hard for what you have?! btw I'm not Jewish but I respect hard working people.

    If the dirty greedy lying Jews are God's "Chosen Ones" how come he told them to turn LEFT into the most barren lands on the planet instead of turning RIGHT to where all the oil land are?

    Re: Nika89 – Since when is selling Gold & Diamonds stolen from the most abused slaves in the in the world "WORKING HARD"?

    Personally, I do not care who has money, as long as they are not hurtful people and give back once in a while (also not be a media whore). Also, religion does not have to define a person or a group of people, for better or worse. Everyone is an individual, respect each other for their religion, race, education level, and health. I cannot stand when some people who are preaching their faith, wrangling their own hate with a message of what should be peace…or don't preach at all because once you bring religion and hating some group…well you just screwed yourself and anyone you associate with.

    is it any wonder Katie turned out the way she did?

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing – You are contradicting yourself. They are dumb for not becoming sand fleas but they own LA? You're the one to bring up "Chosen Ones." Why don't you take a trip to Auschwitz to move to Idaho? You make me sick.

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing – Obviously,you're not very intelligent and I will not lower myself to your level! If you don't know anything about the subject then keep quiet. That's where my conversation with you ends.

    That's where Katy Perry gets her hypocritical ways from.
    The old saying goes: Like father like daughter..

    Fucking twat.

    The Palestinian Holocaust inflicted by the Jews (the worst Holocaust in the history of the World) IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!

  15. 15

    The Jews are Anti-Non-Semantics!

    I don't even know what the hell he is talking about. What he said to begin with doesn't make a whole lotta sense. It sounds like a rambling mess. Was he totally serious? Was he just mimicking an anti-semitic person? His explanation is even worse, if that is possible. This guy is a mess. I wouldn't want to sit in a church where the speaker is talking all screwed up like that.

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing

    Yup, and it's the poor Palestinians that shot missiles at the Israel hospitals.

    Terrible comments and unbelievable that he picked these things up as 'figures of speech' when it is obviously religious prejudice at its worst. Well, not worse than suicide bombers and all that, but terrible, nonetheless. No wonder Katy Perry changed her last name.

  19. 19

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing – No wonder his cheating husband is missing hes a sick freak with no education

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing – it's because God knows that they are the most genius people on earth, they can run the world from only a barren land, while others which not so smart being given the rich countries but still their people reminds poor and need help from genius people to process their fertile land.

    He cannot tell us where he picked up that language (which he has likely preached and spread like herpes for years)? He did not consider what it meant? This sheds a lot of light on why Katy is the way she is (a self righteous hypocritical twit).

  22. 22

    BUT Katy is half JEWISH. Everyone knows that Katy Perry is 1/2 JEW.
