Katy Perry SuedKaty Perry Stole Black Horse 

Katy Perry
blatantly stole a song from a Christian hip-hop singer and then tarnished it with witchcraft, paganism and black magic ... at least that's the claim in a new lawsuit.

According to the suit -- obtained by TMZ -- Perry's hit song "Dark Horse" is a rip-off of an award-winning Christian gospel song called "Joyful Noise" ... that was released 5 years before Perry's track.

The suit was filed by an artist known as Flame -- along with other singers. They say Perry not only hijacked their religious music ... she also destroyed their reputation in the Christian music world ... because they're now associated with the anti-Christian witchcraft and imagery that appears in the "Dark Horse" music video.


They're suing for damages ... and want Perry to stop using any form of their music ... stat.

So we gotta ask ...

They both have the same rhythms, but not at all the same beats.

It's a very big stretch to say those two tracks are similar. Then again, if you truly hate Perry...

What are they and their fans doing watching Katy's "witch-craft" filled video anyway? The intro music is vaguely the same but not enough to justify these kinds of claims. Money trumps all, even in religion eh?
