Toddler's 'Ain't No Homos' Song

Puts Church on Lockdown

Pastor Gets Death Threats

EXCLUSIVE

Members of an Indiana church say they've been flooded with death threats since video of a 3-year-old proudly singing, "Ain't no homos gonna make it to heaven" ... was posted on the Internet.

Multiple members of the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle Church in Greensburg, Indiana tell TMZ the church office has been getting harassing calls and the pastor has received death threats at his home. They also say a prayer meeting scheduled for this evening at church had to be moved to a secret location.

We're told they are looking into increasing security, but for now the congregation is handling it ... taking turns watching over the church.

One member says Pastor Jeff Sangl is extremely worried about his safety -- and this morning he and his wife left for vacation without telling anyone where they were going.

Despite the threats, all the members we spoke to have no regrets about the song getting posted online -- in fact one 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 hate-filled song -- we're told, "Of course we applauded a child who is singing a song about God."

It needs to be a felony how children are used for cult activities. Just goes to prove organized religion (cults) have long outlived their usefulness.

I'm sorry, but I don't remember the bible telling anyone to spread hate. In fact, I'm pretty sure it says in there that you don't have the power to judge anyone. Hypocrites!

"those upset must not read the word of God"

FALSE. I'm married to a very involved Christian, and he is VERY disgusted by the actions of this church.

Adults can have their own opinion, but it's sickening and distressing to see them teaching hate to a child.

God preaches love, not hate. These fools aren't representative of God--they represent just the opposite. So--Jeff Sangl created an environment of hate and bigotry in his church, and then went on vacation when the going gets tough? He just left his congregation to face it all by themselves? Great guy he is.

Toddlers don't know the word "homo'" unless they are specifically taught it at home. Pretty sure God is looking down on this church and is disgusted that they completely missed the basic tenets of Christianity.

What a bunch of idiots.. let's preach hate then whine and cry when they get hate back. Pretty sure somewhere in the Bible it talks about reaping what you sow ...

The Bible also says that we should not judge another person or hate another person, that only God can judge. How about we teach this to these young children instead of teaching them hate. This kind of hate is what breeds violence and discrimination and that is not okay; that is not the kind of world I want my child raised in.

I'm not sure where the pastor went on vacation...but I bet there's a baldheaded kid playing a banjo on a bridge nearby.

I guess they don't believe in "love they neighbor" or "live and let live." Now, they're getting the same hate they spew. Karma's a b!tch.

Just because you disagree with someone else's opinion does not mean they are haters. Come on folks, where is your civility. There was nothing this child said that was considered HATE. But since TMZ is run by homosexuals, they are the ones calling it hate and all of you lemmings are falling in line with the homosexual agenda. Shame on you.

Homosexuals are the most hate filled people in the world. That is why they keep pointing their fingers and calling everyone who don't agree with them haters. Hey !! He who smelt it delt it.

The kid is right about "No Homos going to Heaven", because there is no heaven.
