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."

As a Christian I am offended. It really shouldn't suprise me that parents teach this garbage to their kids but come on! LGBT has been more of a norm for almost twenty-thirty years. People need to get over themselves.

why in the hell would any parent want their child singing this I dont care how religious you are, god taught his children and their children's children to love no matter what.. Here is some words of wisdom....

Don't Pass Judgement on something you dont know about.. and dont let your child grow up to be a hateful person

I'm so glad that this went public. I hope this shows other 'churches' that they can't get away with preaching and teaching hate.

Funny, these "christians" worry so much about what others are doing in bed, but give no thought at all to teaching a too young child to hate and be rewarded for it. Some of these so called churches should not be granted tax free status. Unless hate mongering is a religion, they don't qualify.

Whose idea was it to have 3YEAR OLD sing this song. Borders on child abuse as the child could not have had
any idea what he was singing about. Is this thier idea
of Sunday Morning Worship. Easy to see the hatred
that this child is learning in his home when his parents
would agree to put him on display like this.

If God is our creator....didnt he create homos? He created human life and it is the human life that is putting a label on other humans, and for those who are making threats are no better than the people who applaud to the song.

That is not God, God is not hate. That sure is not singing a song that glorifies God, for that is not how God wants us to spread His love. God does not want us to condemn others, God is the one who will judge us in the end. If someone's lifestyle is wrong, God will judge that, it is not up to people to judge and certainly not up to a church to claim they are doing this for God? No, this is the devils work if anyone thinks that this is okay.

It is not pleasing to God to display any form of judgment or hate, and the church should never have been behind this nor teach a child such hatred. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves and leave the judging up to God. Using hate speak is not sharing the love of God, and any church, or pastor who tries to justify this, is justifying the devil's work, for it is not God working in this at all.

Someone's lifestyle choice is up to God to judge, not a church, not a pastor, not a 3 year old who knows no better but the hate his parents are teaching him, I may not agree with someone's choice to live a gay lifestyle but it is not my place to judge their choice or lifestyle, I can pray for them and leave it up to God to be the judge.

This is not okay in any way.

This is not God, this is the devil getting into the heads and hearts of a church who is feeding hate instead of sharing the love of God, for God does not love with hate, God is pure love and this is not love. LEAVE the JUDGING TO GOD. Don't call people deragotory names, how in any way does this church or pastor explain name calling as a form of God's love?
He who is without sin, cast the first stone.!!!"

Whats the difference is ???

Brainwashing maybe? I am a Christian and I will never act like these idiots and I am in NC. Keep pushing everyone claiming to be "Christian". You only make me and anything I believe in look worse. Bob, Joe, Levingston you ought to be ashamed of yourself for even remotely thinking you are in control of even your own children. Lets see who's so hate mongering when you have a grandchild who is gay. It is like my own state has abandoned human decency and rational thought. If you actually believe like you say you sin no more or less than they do. Get a life and get actual courage to defend what even Christ would defend!!
