Toddler Sings in Church

'Ain't No Homos Gonna

Make It to Heaven'

This video is nuts -- an Indiana toddler took the mic at his church recently, and sang a hate-filled anti-gay song ... with the lyrics, "Ain't no homos gonna make it to heaven" ... and the crowd went WILD.

The video was reportedly recorded at the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana --  featuring a young boy on the altar, barely old enough to walk, singing a song he was obviously spoon fed.

It's pretty hard to make out the words -- so here are the lyrics ...

"The Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong.
The Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong.
Romans one, twenty six and twenty seven;
Ain’t no homos gonna make it to Heaven."

The congregation erupts in thunderous applause after the song.

FYI, here's Romans 1:26-27 -- "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error."

It's the latest video to hit the web showing rampant homophobia in America's churches -- starting with a North Carolina pastor advocating beating the gay out of your child ... and another NC pastor talking about fencing up gay people and letting them die out.

What's next for this child. Joining the Westboro church.?. These parents should have this child taken away. For child abuse. Mental and emotional trauma. Even though he is three, he's just a baby. It disgusts me that the parents as well as the church are going along with this abuse. He is going to need so much therapy to repair what they have done to him. I only hope he is able to get it before he ends up in the criminal justice system. For doing something to himself or someone else. Please know I am not saying that everyone who attends these churches or any other church is going to end up on a destructive path. I am just concerned with the church bigots and the extremists. Such as Warren Jeffs, and David Koresh. If I have offended anyone with this post. I am truly sorry. That was not my intention

America has taken a giant step backwards, is this the America the GOP wants back? How about some tolerance and acceptance people? So much hatred & bigotry being fed to small children, just disgusting...

Yeah! Why is it so important that so many homosexuals need to put their sexuality in everyone's face? Damn! Go do your thing and quit telling me I gotta dig it. Hell, I've got the price of gas to worry about and could care less that the world knows someone's sexual preference has to get equal time. I just don't get why I need to sign off on who someone sleeps with. What does being gay have to do with solving the real problems in the world? Why is being gay a qualification for political office? Why does being gay have to be significant in anything other than personal relationships that no one really gives a **** about anyway? Live you lives and shut the hell up with all the whining and crying about everything. Damn! Do I need a billboard announcing to the world whether I want to do a guy or a gal? I sure as hell don't care if anyone accepts what I do in my personal life so why the freaking campaign for acceptance from people who could give a **** less? Who the hell cares who you are doing? Get a life already!

This is truly disgusting ! He is not speaking his mind, he is speaking whatever they told him. I don't even think he is old enough to know what a homo is, or straight for that matter. I though Christianity was about, love, support and the union of communities. They have turned into hate groups, hiding behind a cross and a bible.

I dont have the words. Really? This is what children are being taught these days? In the church none the less? Way to raise our children for a brighter future.

This is not the way I'd advocate a pro--heterosexual, pro-christian, pro-moral life, but won't judge how a parent decides to start teaching their child about sin.

Whoa-"rampant homophobia in America's churches"?
While I in no way agree with this video and it's message, it's also ridiculous to make such a sweeping statement about America's churches. I attend church every week and I've never heard anything about beating the gay out of a child or fencing them up. Please don't assume that because a few close-minded and hateful churches exists, all of them are like that. Your being as ignorant as the people you're featuring.

His parents need a swift kick in the arse! That baby is not old enough to know what he is saying. He was doing as he was taught. It is such a shame we have so many close minded idiots in this world. You can believe in this so called god believe the bible is real cuz "men don't lie" (haha) but you don't/can't believe everyone should be equal. Everybody breaks the "rules" of the "bible" every day. Does that mean every single one of us should be killed? Why is being gay such a bad "rule" to break but breaking all the other "rules" is okay? Maybe being straight should be illegal, bet you narrow minded *******s wouldn't think the same way you are now! If there is a god and he is so awesome why would be want to kill anyone? Isn't he the one who "allows" free will? I hate churches and the 2 faced people in them. Have you all ever played football? That is breaking one of your precious little bibles rules! Does anyone find it crazy how most of the hate in this world comes from religion?

Do you believe God or TMZ?

Romans3:4:


(for Harvey the Lawyer, so he can think he might argue with God later. Just kidding, there is no arguing with God. God is always right, God is true.)


Gods Word Translation:

That would be unthinkable! God is honest, and everyone else is a liar, as Scripture says, "So you hand down justice when you speak, and you win your case in court."


King James Version:

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.


Think about this: Whenyou are standing by yourself, not with a group of people, before God...and we all will:


Think about this:

NOTES ON THE BIBLE VERSE:

Let God be true - Let God be esteemed true and faithful, whatever consequence may follow. This was a first principle, and should be now, that God should be believed to be a God of truth, whatever consequence it might involve. How happy would it be, if all people would regard this as a fixed principle, a matter not to be questioned in their hearts, or debated about, that God is true to his word! How much doubt and anxiety would it save professing Christians; and how much error would it save among sinners! Amidst all the agitations of the world, all conflicts, debates, and trials, it would be a fixed position where every man might find rest, and which would do more than all other things to allay the tempests and smooth the agitated waves of human life.

But every man a liar - Though every man and every other opinion should be found to be false. Of course this included the apostle and his reasoning; and the expression is one of those which show his magnanimity and greatness of soul. It implies that every opinion which he and all others held; every doctrine which had been defended; should be at once abandoned, if it implied that God was false. It was to be assumed as a first principle in all religion and all reasoning, that if a doctrine implied that God was not faithful, it was of course a false doctrine. This showed his firm conviction that the doctrine which he advanced was strictly in accordance with the veracity of the divine promise. What a noble principle is this! How strikingly illustrative of the humility of true piety, and of the confidence which true piety places in God above all the deductions of human reason! And if all people were willing to sacrifice their opinions when they appeared to impinge on the veracity of God; if they started back with instinctive shuddering at the very supposition of such a lack of fidelity in him; how soon would it put an end to the boastings of error, to the pride of philosophy, to lofty dictation in religion! No man with this feeling could be for a moment a universalist; and none could be an infidel.

As it is written - Psalm 51:4. To confirm the sentiment which he had just advanced and to show that it accorded with the spirit of religion as expressed in the Jewish writings, the apostle appeals to the language of David, uttered in a state of deep penitence for past transgressions. Of all quotations ever made, this is one of the most beautiful and most happy. David was overwhelmed with grief; he saw his crime to be awful; he feared the displeasure of God, and trembled before him. Yet "he held it as a fixed, indisputable principle that" God was right. This he never once thought of calling in question. He had sinned against God, God only; and he did not once think of calling in question the fact that God was just altogether in reproving him for his sin, and in pronouncing against him the sentence of condemnation.

Kids are just like parrots and he is just repeating what ever his father is telling him to say anyway. Hopefully he will feel different when can think for himself. We should all pray for them. It sounds like they could use some.

God preaches love! This is hate in its purest form. Didn't the parents have enough guts to sing this song themselves. His dad sent his boy to do a man's job because he is a coward and he knew no one would kick that baby's ass... him on the other hand...

Yet, these same types of people allow in their midst, heterosexual couples who live together without the benefit of marriage and fully accept them. Think their not having sex? Doesn't matter - in the Bible stumbling a brother is very wrong. These types of people DWELL on the sexual aspect of homosexuality ad nauseum. Relationships are about so much more. But they don't dwell on the fact that these living together out of wedlock folks are HAVING S-E-X? ***********, plain and simple and it's a biggie in the sin world!
