Two sides to the story

I posted a video of Katy Perry's song "I kissed a Girl" yesterday along with a link from a media story where her parents (both pastors) were portrayed in a judgemental and ridiculing way. You can read that story here.

The media can twist things around to portray their take on the story. I know this from experience in my job where I have been misquoted in the newspaper. Katy's father Keith (He's got a pretty cool name eh?) responded in another story here.

Well, Keith, is it any wonder? First of all, we know that in latter days some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits. Second, the parents took a back seat in child rearing for their own selfish monetary gain; they call themselves "pastors". I have a problem with this; women pastors-totally unbiblical- women usurping man's authority over her. Where was Katie's mother as she was growing up? What example and upbringing did she give her daughter? Third, her parents said, they have nothing against her, which leads anyone to believe they condone her behavior, because she is still their daughter, and they have to be forgiving.

The next article you write is about being judgemental. I don't know if this is in relation to the previous post. But we are to judge, the scripture instructs us to do so;Jn7:24, not according to our imperfect standards, but according to the Word of God and biblical standard of holy living. Yes the blood of Jesus covers imperfect people of faith, but it doesn't cover unrepented sin.
And if this young girl's father knows not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?

So yes, to a certain degree her parents are at fault for not instructing their child in the way that she should go. And how could they if they have no real concept of doctrine.

Just my thoughts. Don't know how I happened upon your site.
thanks for listening
