It’s no secret that Katy Perry grew up in the Christian Church and these days resides a ways from it. But you may not have known that her father, Keith Hudson, is still a preacher—a freelance evangelist affiliated with the non-denominational The Sanctuary in Huntington Beach.
And while out spreading the gospel, Hudson reportedly went on a bizarre—and very un-Christian—rant against Jews. Via Jezebel:
“You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey. You go to LA and they own all the Rolex and diamond places. Walk down a part of LA where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah. Amen.”
I don’t even know what to say. Anti-Semitism aside, Hudson’s statement is pretty difficult to parse. And, no, I’ve never smelled rich.
