Katy Perry's Parents

Divorce Was a Gift from God

1/7/2012 7:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pastors Keith and Mary Hudson
God works in mysterious ways -- and in the eyes of Katy Perry's parents, her recent divorce from Russell Brand is one of the ways, because God used to the divorce to fill the rafters of their church.

Pastors Keith and Mary Hudson preached to the congregation at Church On The Rise in Westlake, OH on Wednesday, says The Sun, in an appearance that was advertised by the church.

Perry's mom, Mary, speaking for the first time about the split, told parishioners, "I'm sure Katy is trending on the internet just to get you to church tonight. I mean all over the world, who knows how God is bringing them in? The most important thing is you are here and God wants to put the fire in you in 2012."

At one point, Perry's dad said, "What has taken place in my daughter's life has opened many opportunities to go in and be with guarded and gated people. God has given us a platform to go in and meet people -- and they like us because we are cool. We are not threatening."

According to the paper, a video was shown beforehand that featured the Hudsons at award shows with Katy. The Hudsons are scheduled to appear tomorrow at a church in Georgia and the video below is on the church's site promoting the appearance.

TMZ, tell your baby journalists to proofread their copy. This is garbage text. And kids, sit don't run to your nearest church. Religions are cults, controlled by men, to keep women enslaved, and to separate you from your money. It should be obvious here that as their daughter is getting divorced, all of a sudden they change the Christian doctrine to make divorce acceptable. If you are a Christian, you are one of 3 things: mentally-handicapped, greedy or just a plain lemming follower. If you can't prove it, how can you worship it? Suckers.

Katy's parents are imbecilles for saying her divorce was a gift from god a child is a gift from god. a divorce is always a tragedy but some people aren't meant to be married in the first place Katy & Russell were never gonna be like Ringo Star & Barbara Bach who have been married 31 years or Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward who would've celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary Janaury 29th

Katy Perry & family hate Jews???..... "Speaking at the Church on the Rise in Westlake, Ohio, Keith Hudson told the congregation, "You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey," reports Britain's The Sun. "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.""

Jimmy Fallon totally "knocked it out of the park" with this impression of Russell Brand. Jimmy has probably hung out with Russell a few times so he does the impression to perfection. Two thumbs up Jimmy!! I bet it might even make Katy smile a little today since she's probably bummed out. Maybe Russell too.

Scroll down the page to see the video. It's hilarious if you've seen some of Russell's comedy shows, movies or watched him on talk shows.

Jimmy is one of the best talk show hosts out there. Maybe he can have Katy on his show before long.

I love these B.S. beliefs that people have about "god". If the divorce was a gift from god, then why did he give them the marriage? Was it all just a big trick on his part? Hmmm.

It's amazing what religious zealots believe and try to explain away.

I try to refrain from commenting on unimportant and insignificant matters, yet, this morning I'm compelled:

1. For all the "media-experts" complaining about typographical and/or grammatical errors, be advised:
Mr. Harvey Levin and his staff at TMZ, has -both- practiced and allowed others to exercise their First-Amendment Rights.
As a privately-owned enterprise, this is not a given.
With The True and Living YAHWEH, as My Witness, my expressions have -sometimes craftily- been censored and/or suppressed by CBS, YouTube, Tribune, MSN, Craigslist, and numerous other "bastions of Freedom". Never vulgar, never deceitful, never libelous. Indeed, -CONFIRMED- Agents of The State, must serve their true master. Thank-you again,
Mr. Levin and TMZ.

2. What the "CHRISTian" parents of an "entertainer" whose
claim to fame is something entitled "I Kissed A Girl" believes, is equal-parts absurd and offensive.

Psalm 2_012, is NOW: The Christ King YESHUA, reigns!
