"Part of the reason that Christians are persecuted for having faith is because of Christians, and some of the things that we've said and some of the things we've done," says Perry, who produces and narrates the live Fox musical about the last days of Christ (Jencarlos Canela).
"And that's what I love about The Passion. It's so inclusive of everyone," he continues. "It's so about love for everyone. And I think that message never goes out of style, no matter how many people want to dumb it down or dull it down or make it nonexistent."

The Passion airs Sunday, March 20 at 8/7c on Fox.
