An angry mother confronted Keith Hudson, a Christian evangelist and the father of pop star Katy Perry, this week, calling the famed singer a "satanic woman" and warning that Perry will drag her father to hell "right along with her."
"Do you know that she is one of the most wicked people?" the woman, identified only as Christine, said in the clip. "She is a satanic woman who has led millions to hell."
Hudson, who runs a ministry alongside his wife, Mary, responded to the woman, who questioned his ability to be a Christian leader, by noting that he ministers "all over the world."
But that did little to satisfy her, as she continued with a barrage of insults.
"Then minister to your daughter, because that is needed more than ever," Christine continued. "You ought to know better — when you have a girl that walks with satan the way she does!"

And she wasn't done there.
"She is taking you to hell right along with her, including millions of young women and men who are listening to her videos!" Christine continued.
Hudson offered several rebuttals, asking the woman, "You think you're acting like a Christian right now?"
Christine didn't relent, saying that, as a Christian, she has every right to judge Hudson and his daughter.
"The fruit of your tree is pretty rotten, along with your daughter's!"
According to TMZ, the clash unfolded outside of a Christian radio station in Phoenix, Arizona, with Hudson telling the outlet that he feared Christine might physically assault him.
He likened her to "a bitter and angry woman trying to blame my kid for her kid's mistakes," according to the entertainment outlet, a reference to the woman's mention of her son throughout the confrontation.

As TheBlaze previously reported Perry has publicly renounced her childhood faith, telling Marie Claire in a 2013 interview that she’s no longer Christian and doesn’t believe in heaven, hell or “an old man sitting on a throne.”
Perry did say that she believes in a higher power — a paradigm that holds her accountable.
“Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don’t want to hear,” she said. “I actually don’t trust people who start to turn on me because they get scared of telling me the truth.”
Perry said she’s rejected traditional theological labels, but that while she has left her evangelical faith behind, she still feels close to the Lord.
“I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God,” she said at the time. “I pray all the time — for self-control, for humility. There’s a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying ‘thank you’ sometimes is better than asking for things.”
Marie Claire reported that Perry gets her connection to spirituality through the writings of Eckhart Tolle, an author known for his popular books about metaphysics and spirituality. She also practices transcendental meditation, a form of mantra meditation.

Perry previously told Rolling Stone magazine in 2010 that God “is very much still a part of” her life.
In 2011, Perry also described herself as a “drifter,” saying she’s continuously asking questions and “soaking everything up.” She has also said she’s “open to possibility,”and that her strict upbringing as confined her in a bubble of sorts that she has since broken out of.
