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."

So they're getting a taste of the fear their kind put LGBTs in every day, huh? Good.

As he should be afraid of his safety. That's what spreading the message of hate entails.

Hate to say, but you spew hate like this and promote it, you should expect to fear for your life. The "pastor" and parent(s) of those kids, are DOUCHE BAGS.....................

Ummm.... What about free speech? Is it on
Y if you agree with it? Can people not ignore it? Death threats? Really? Where are we? Some oppresive backwards country? You may not like what they say, and they may not like what you say. Guess what? You both have the damn right yo say it! Get over it! No one agrees with everyone all the time!

What "word of God"???? Exactly when did the heavens open up and a book fall from it?? When and when did this happen?? Exactly, it didn't. This "Bible" has a multitude of writers; it was done over many years, about a thousand years ago. It has ABSOLUTELY NO RELEVANCE TO LIFE IN THE CURRENT DAY USA.
We have The Constitution, which we know who wrote, when and where this was done, and as proof one can see it at the National Archives.

You will get back from the universe...what you put out into the universe.
If you preach and promote hatred...you will receive hatred in return. If you show intolerance of others...you will receive the same. If I was one of these people....I would be VERY afraid of what KARMA/the universe had in-store for me. Burn forever in hell boys!

I have to agree with another poster. How is this TMZ's domain? Suddenly TMZ wants to report on social issues?
I don't agree with the spitefull tone against gays but the real hypocricy is that TMZ is suddenly pretending to be a real news network whenever gays are threatened.

All the men who say it's a choice obviously have some issues with their "feminine" side. No matter how hard I "choiced" it, I couldn't get an erection from looking at a man. You are born that way and if you think different, you are probably gay.

The judgment of gays before an almighty, just & righteous God is not laughing matter! These are people who have chosen a life void of God's love & will surely spend an eternity separated from his love as well. We should be praying for the lost, not mocking them or teaching our children to mock their pending damnation, it's really pretty sickening!

Would Jesus have taught this child to sing this or laugh about the condition of the confused & wayward?
