Now the captain of the bodyguard had taken Jeremiah and said to him, "The LORD your God promised this calamity against this place; and the LORD has brought it on and done just as He promised.

Ed. Note: BEALERT! is not stating whether Katy Hudson (a.k.a. Katy Perry) is or is not a born again, saved Christian. That is a heart issue only the Lord knows. However, based on scriptures clearly laid out in Matthew, 1 Corinthians, 1 John as well as many others, believers are to judge the actions, lifestyles and major doctrines according to the plumb line of what is written in the full context of Genesis through Revelation. This is a case of someone growing up in the evangelical church, a child of pastors, and starting her career as a “Christian music artist” and then turning to the world and re-creating herself into pop-star Katy Perry.

Others who have brought shame upon the name of Christ because of there public dealings include Televangelists, politicians and business owners such as Erik Prince, founder of private military contractor Blackwater Worldwide now known as Xe Services LLC.

"Sesame Street" said in a statement Thursday that in light of the "feedback we've received" after the bit was aired on YouTube, they won't include it on the show. While the show said it would still be available on YouTube, it had been removed by the official Sesame Street YouTube channel. ...
