American evangelic activist Gordon Klingenschmitt has lashed out at pop star Katy Perry for failing to “pray the gay away” at Jesus camps she attended as a kid.
The singer grew up in a devoutly Christian household, where her father was a pastor, but she turned her back on her religious upbringing in her teens and decided to follow a more free-spirited life.
Last month the Roar singer upset a lot of hardcore Christians by lashing out at elders’ anti-gay beliefs during a speech at a Human Rights Campaign gala, during which she recalled her conservative childhood, and the camps where she was taught that homosexuality was “synonymous with the word abomination”.
In a new episode of his Pray in Jesus Name program, Klingenschmitt, a former Republican state legislator, took aim at Katy, insisting nowadays she is “ruled by Satan”.
“If you had been sincere in your prayers at the Jesus camps, you would have prayed against sin and the devil,” he said. “You would have repented of your sin and invited Jesus to rule your heart. But apparently that’s not what you prayed.”
He added, “Katy Perry, you don’t just need more of your Jesus camps, more of the Bible, more of what your parents told you; you need to get the devil out of you.”
