Pastors talk about killing gays, child says 'homos' won't make it to heaven

According to my online pal, Jeremy Hooper, the fact that gays and our relationships are getting more of a positive limelight is obviously beginning to scare some people.

He has tracked two unfortunate cases of pastors in the pulpit advocating killing gays:

But for sheer shock, Jeremy has to take a backseat to what looks like a four-year-old singing about how gays aren't going to heaven:

Wow, we don’t know what to say about this video. It’s a video of a young boy in what looks to be a church setting singing.

“I know the bible’s right, somebody’s wrong,” he says. And then the child goes on to say, “ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven.”

The congregation jumps up to cheer.

The video was initially been removed from youtube for hate speech, but someone else made a copy of it:

Just in case it's removed again, go here to see it.

I know what Gandhi once said about those who hate you - "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win."

But DAMN! It's hell when they fight you, isn't it?

Now I know not all Christians believe this way but I wish those who don't would stand up and be a bit more vocal in calling out those who are so venomously anti-gay.

I feel a bit bad for this kid. Odds are, left to his own devices, he would not think that was true. Odds are, he has no idea what a 'homo' is... and if he does, it's a very vague idea of some sort of bad person that makes his mom and dad angry about something. He's just singing a song he's heard, and getting positive reinforcement for it from the adults around him. It's kind of sad, really.

Get real.

Every Christian lovingly and adoringly embraces with every last ounce of their heart, mind and soul the sick twisted vile filth found between the two black leather bound covers of their Bibles which contains all the hate that young child espoused and much much worse.

UNTIL they say this stuff is utter trash and we are ripping it out of the Bible as the rancid ignorance and vile attempts at justifying the horrific actions of the barbarians who wrote much of it, that it is, then EVERY Christian is as responsible for the hate that the 'radical' ones spew and enact.

THEY, the liberal Christians, will tell you that book they cling ever so tightly to is the word of god even while they ignore vast swaths of it, knowing it to be immoral and evil. And that leaves the door WIDE open for the ones who take the book more seriously and at its word, to feel fully justified in the evil they perpetuate.

Sorry anonymous but we will HAVE to agree to disagree here. Homosexuality is not the enemy of Christianity and vice versa. Don't let ignorant people keep you from talking with God regarding what He thinks and not them.

Why would you even make a song to trash another one of god's children and have a child sing it in church? Oh, Jesus, I pray, weep with me. Forgive these fools as they are ignorant to the true cause of Christ which is LOVE.

Hey Anonymous,

I'm one of those liberal Christians you're being so nasty about. Give me a second, OK?

I DON'T believe the Bible is the "word of God" and a lot of other liberal Christians I know don't either. We see it as a record (one of many!) of humanity's attempt to make sense of the divine. I know there's plenty of nastiness in the Bible, and a lot of that has to do with the time in which it was written, in a patriarchal time when people were mostly semi-nomads. (I might also add that a lot has been lost or changed in translation over the centuries.)

We're smart enough to separate God from the things people thousands of years ago in another culture *said* about God.
