According to the Christian Post, singer Katy Perry made negative remarks about Christianity in her speech to an anti-Christian Human Rights Campaign during the organization's annual gala in Los Angeles last Saturday. The 32-year-old pop singer, whose birth name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, was there to receive the National Equality Award, which is the group's highest honor. Katy received the award for using her voice to promote LGTBQ equality.

Katy Perry's speech

The "Roar" singer felt comfortable trashing Christianity because of the audience. She knew she was among people with similar views about religion.

For instance, Katy let the group know that her hit single, "I Kissed a Girl" didn't tell the whole story. The singer emphasized that she did a lot more than what she revealed in her song.

The Christian Post states that Katy's intent was to generate laughter and get applause from a crowd who appreciated that she was "trashing Christianity" while making fun of her Christian past.

Remarks to the group

Katy praised the group she addressed. She congratulated them for "living their truth" while alluding to the fact that it was difficult for her to be her authentic self when she was growing up with parents who are both ministers.

The Huffington Post reported that Perry was once a young girl growing up in a very religious family.

She admitted she had to go to a lot of church activities as a Pentecostal Christian. Most people don't know this, but Katy started out being a Christian rock singer when she was only 15 years old. She was signed to Red Hill music label. When Red Hill ceased operations, Katy changed her focus and began singing the type of songs she sings today.

The singer's 3-D film

The singer is in the process of completing a 3-D film that tells her life story. It is a portrayal of what it was like for her to grow up in with very religious parents. The film, "Part of Me," will be launched in theaters on July 5, 2017. Fans who want to see it three days earlier can follow Paramount's #KP3D Movie Sneak hashtag on Twitter.
