“I don’t listen to Katy Perry, I don’t listen to Madonna, I don’t listen to Lady Gaga, I don’t listen to Beyoncé – I don’t listen to any of them,” said Pastor Charles Lawson, of Temple Baptist Church in Knoxville. “I got better things to do.”
Lawson read the lyrics to Perry’s hit song, “E.T. (Futurist Lover),” which he claims is about “having a physical relationship with the devil.”
“’Take me, take me, wanna be a victim,’” the pastor intoned. “’Ready for abduction, boy you’re an alien. Your touch so foreign, it’s supernatural, extraterrestrial’ – and on she goes in praise and worship and singing to Satan.”
He told his congregation that their children had rejected Jesus Christ and his Gospel because of pop music that promotes female sexuality.
