    A response to the article suggested that somebody remix the hell out of that little kid's video.

    Where's Jake Benson when you need him?

    Great just what we need. A reason for the Christians to can't express repressive hate speech, so they can call us faggots at our weddings.

    It's sad to actually watch, but did we really expect that this was not happening in America?

    There will always be children that are taught to hate "others", who unfortunately often turn out to be themselves.

    This is why we need to ensure that politicians who fight against civil rights are not voted in to office.

    I have implored my 'religious' friends to find out why other churches aren't speaking out against this type of hate? Is it wrong to hate? or is it okay?

    As for those "threats":

    My guess on whatever legitimate threats they get involves them calling themselves.

    Funny thing is a bunch of facebook friends today posted why is there hate in America towards Christianity. How it is being attacked and how Obama has started a war against Jesus.

    This whole thing really pissed me off, so I took the time to fire off a letter to this church's pastor @

    pastorsangl@apostolictruthtabernacle.net


    Pastor Sangl -

    I, like probably thousands of Americans, had the opportunity to see the video of the young boy singing the "No Homos In Heaven" song in your church. What was even more disturbing, was seeing YOU (a so-called Pastor no less) in the background cheering the kid on. The applause from your congregation spoke volumes as to the kind of "christianity" you teach in your church. Sadly, you, and others like you who we have been exposed to in recent weeks who condone hate and unacceptance from their church, somehow missed the most valuable lessons in Christianity, so it's no surprise that you don't teach it to your congregation. There is nothing "Christian-like" in a young boy singing such a song in church. The fact that the child's parent, let alone the pastor of the church, were seemingly blind to the utter lack of "cuteness" in this act is the biggest disappointment of all.

    You, sir, owe your congregation an apology. You, sir, had better hope that there are no budding young gay kids in your congregation, let alone gay adults, who were internally hurt by this sad display. Why do you suppose young gay teens are hanging themselves in record numbers --- or does THAT fact please you? I see that you posted on your website the following:

    "The Pastor and members of Apostolic Truth Tabernacle do not condone, teach, or practice hate of any person for any reason"

    Really, Pastor? The video that has now gone viral for ALL to see tells an entirely different story. YOU, sir, should be ashamed of yourself. God must be looking down from heaven utterly ashamed of YOU as well. What on earth were you thinking? Your actions are an embarrassment. Let this whole thing be a lesson to you that HATE, breeds more HATE. Had you been teaching the proper lessons of love, understanding, and acceptance --- especially to the impressionable children in your congregation --- rather than actually encouraging and cheering them on that "Hate" is okay, even "cute", then you would not be feeling the repercussions of your irresponsible and short-sighted, not to mention VERY un-Christian-like actions.

    I'm guessing the above is what passes for "threats" in their warped world.

    They trumped up the threats to save face. Yeah, they received withering public scorn.

    That's what happens when grown people use a little kid in a creepy religious minstrel show.

    Get 'em while they're young, I guess.

    Just thinnk how fucked up that little boy is going to be if he is gay! Child abuse isn't just physical. More often than not the psychological abuse is worse. Tragic!

    The original story is suspiciously vague... claiming the church is "on lockdown" but offering no specifics. It invokes images of angry protesters threatening to burn the place down, but in reality I'm guessing it means that the church staff lock the doors when they go home at night. Not exactly a crisis.
    And as for these alleged "death threats" -- if that really happened, why would this "pastor" not have called the police?
    The church probably received a few irate emails (as they should) and spun the whole thing into portraying themselves as victims of the scary gay people.
    More lies from the fundies -- it seems like that's what they do best.

    Also, did the anti-gay preacher's wife fall asleep in the spray-tan booth?
    She looks like a fundamentalist version of Snookie.

    Honestly, I felt bad for the kid who had to follow him. How do you top that? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Seriously though...people cheering that kind of stuff is a bit bothersome. People have the right to freedom of speech/religion, but it's really sad to see ignorance of any kind not only passed down, but also supported and encouraged.

    Good catch. That was my very first thought as soon I read about the so-called death threats. That pile of shit didn't even try to cover itself.

    turbobilly saidParents know what's best for the children, bitches!


    Excellent point on what society deems appropriate brainwashing. I'd never find either of those two directions acceptable
