Katy Perry’s father ashamed of daughter

Getty ImagesPapa don't preach

Katy Perry is the daughter of a fiery preacher, and he’s none too pleased that his little girl is a prancing, demonic Jezebel that exalts Satan’s wares. 

“They ask, ‘how can I preach if I produce a girl who sings about kissing another girl?’” Keith Perry asked a congregation in Santa Fe Springs.

According to The Sun, some have accused Perry’s parents of making money off the back of their daughter by traveling around the country evangelizing and taking in “millions” in donations on their crusade. He has previously referred to his daughter as a “devil child” who needs “healing,” and he says he is repulsed by all her adulating fans.

“I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping,” he said. “They’re loving and worshiping the wrong thing.” Let’s pray for him.
