Kat Von D responds to backlash after renouncing witchcraft and converting to Christianity

The iconic tattoo artist and star of LA Ink, Kat Von D, recently faced a whirlwind of reactions after converting to Christianity.

Her baptism video, which was shared on Instagram, drew mixed reactions. However, a major portion of this backlash came from the Christian community itself.

In the video, an emotional Kat Von D could be seen immersing herself into the baptismal pool, marking a pivotal moment in her spiritual journey. This transformation was significant, especially since just a year prior, she had publicly renounced witchcraft and parted ways with books that no longer reflected her as a person.
The response from viewers varied. While one might assume that those opposed to Christianity would spearhead the criticism, it was, in fact, the opposite. Taking to Instagram on October 16, Kat addressed the surprising turn of events. Kat Von D responds to the backlash her baptism caused:

She expressed, "You would think that all the hate would be coming from people who are against religion or against Christianity and stuff...But it was really the Christians who were the worst." The criticism took many forms, from questioning the authenticity of her baptism to labeling it a mere PR stunt.

A bewildered Kat Von D responded, "I think one of the comments that I would see repeatedly would be people saying that I was faking it...which I think is so weird." She emphasized that her posts are not monetized and that her conversion might even alienate some of her followers. Yet, she was more taken aback by the criticism she received from the Christian community than any negativity from her fans or friends.
Unsurprisingly, some of the feedback she received was directed at her unique style and appearance. To this, she fiercely retorted, "I wasn't aware that there's a uniform that you're supposed to wear once you give your hearts to Jesus." A poignant reminder that in today's age, the adage "don't judge a book by its cover" still holds ground.

Concluding her video, Kat emphasized the profound nature of her decision, clarifying, "I didn't get baptized to be saved. I was already saved." Her conversion was not an act of seeking attention, but a genuine expression of faith. To her critics, she left a thoughtful message, hoping that they would introspect their views and perhaps reassess their quick judgments.
The story serves as a reminder that even in matters of faith and spirituality, which are deeply personal, public figures like Kat Von D are not immune to judgment. But in the face of criticism, it's heartening to see individuals stand firm in their convictions, inspiring many along the way.
