Singer Katy Perry poses during a photocall as she arrives to attend the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS 2016 event, during the 69th Cannes Film Festival, in Antibes, France, May 19, 2016.

Instead of judging Katy Perry, her parents are asking the Christian community to pray for the pop star.

Keith and Mary Hudson, Perry’s preacher parents, recently spoke at the Church of Grace in Yorba Linda, California, according to Radar Online, which is reporting that the two said they have not given up on their daughter, who claims to no longer practice Christianity. Although the Hudsons have spoken out against Perry’s previous music like her 2008 hit “I Kissed A Girl,” they are proud of her latest inspirational song, “Rise.”

“I want you to pray for my daughter,” Keith said. “Don’t judge her, pray for her. She’s going to be singing ‘Rise’ for the Olympics this year. We’re very proud of it and her.”

Even though Perry has previously denounced her Christian roots, she has maintained a close relationship with her parents. Although they have not agreed with all of her music, they have supported her by attending award shows with the singer.

While some may question the Hudsons’ support of their daughter at events like the Grammys even when they don’t agree with all of her music, Keith believes he is doing what Jesus would do.

“Where do you think Jesus would go? A lot of them in the industry have walked with the Lord or grew up in church,” he reportedly told those listening at the church. “If you are a parent who agrees with everything your son or daughter does, stand up, we’ll shoot you, get rid of you now because you been walking in a lie.”
