Child's Anti-Gay Song Lyrics Lead to Death Threats For Church Pastor, Members

by at . Comments

Members of the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle Church in Greensburg, Ind., are getting more than they bargained for after posting a video online of a three-year-old congregation member proudly singing, "Ain't no homos gonna make it to heaven."

The kid's anti-gay church song references Romans 1:26-27 before the quote above.

The church office has been getting harassing calls and the pastor has even received death threats at his home. Meetings have been moved to alternate places and security has been ratcheted up in response to the negative feedback.

Pastor Jeff Sangl is extremely worried about his safety, and amid the backlash, he and his wife left for vacation without saying where they were going.

Despite the threats, however, no one regrets the song.

One church-goer said, "The people who are upset just don't read the word of God. If we don't teach the children the truth early they will never learn."

As for the thunderous applause after the disturbingly hate-filled song, another said, "Of course we applauded a child who is singing a song about God."

It's all very simple. Those who live by hate and violence (like that video) can expect the same from others. It's actually quite simple. Yes, being offensive as that video is every bit as violent as a death threat, but which came first? It does matter, doesn't it? If one casts stones out at people, they will probably strike back. A death threat is just that...free speech....until someone actually dies. Fomenting hate against a group is just that...fomenting hate like that video. You reap what you sow. Karma's a bitch.

. @ Heather- The God I know- etc? No! I'm not surprised in this age that we live in. Where everyone is entitled to anything they want- or so they think! Your justification of wedlock Children goes hand N hand with your beleifs on gay rights. Us? Well... We foot the Bill as you sit and shit and sqawk like a Seagull and explain the wrongs of the Centuries past. You have nothing to offer Heather-that's why no one listens. You have no bargaining power - that's because you have nothing to offer. All you and yours do is want. You bring nothing to the Table but an appetite and you will believe in anyone that agrees with you. People have played you- the reason your in this situation now? Hell? I'm not sure if you will go to hell or not but if you do- I hope your shit is payed up before go or our taxes will continue to be used for you and yours.

Not condoning homosexuality is not in and of itself HATING!!! It's what the pro-gay movement always throws out to attempt to make their opposers feel guilty. Forget it! In America we have a right to express openly our religious beliefs without apology and for many this is one of them. Pro-gay folks try to make the argument if you are opposing homosexuality you are naturally "homophobic". Wrong! It's not a matter of being scared of it...just opposing it!

Its nice that you think God preaches hate. The God i learned about teaches love and acceptance. That church, they are reaping what they sow. And they are suprised? That must be another part of the bible they didnt read. If i wind up in hell for my out of wedlock children and my belief we should love who we want, so be it. It will be worth it. But know there is a special place in hell for good Christians such as these people, and some of you!

I just picked random bible verses. Live by the whole bible, not bits and pieces.
Jaybird, peace. Romans 2:1.....The bible tells us if we speak out against sin it should be done with humility. Often the sins we notice most clearly in others are the ones that have taken root in us.
Example: Those that gossip are often critical of those that gossip about them.

@Lucy, Jaybird said he was gay the last time this issue came up. You just proved yourself to be a bully. That's the crux of this matter. Heed your own advice in your last sentence. You can't pick and chose what parts of the bible you want to follow. Leviticus 19:18.....But you should love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
Gays are your neighbors.
Exodus 20:16....You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor leading into Matthew 12:6....for every idol word men speak they will give account of it in the day of judgment. Every lie you've ever told. Exodus 20:14....You shall not commit adultery with Matthew 5:28....Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery in his heart.
Have any one of you looked at the opposite sex with lust? Your future spouse perhaps? Sex before marriage?
Hebrews 13: 4....Fornicators and adulters God will judge.
We are all sinners.

Why can't anyone see that they are throwing hate around with all this antigay bullshit. Let people be themselves. Don't waste time changing or trying to change people to what your beliefs are. If being intimate with one of a same sex is a sin, let that person deal with their punishment in the afterlife. Its not your place to pass judgement on one another. [I'm totally for gay rights. And I do not believe that it is a sin. And I will be gladly burn in hell for my beliefs.]
