A child about four-years old receives thunderous applause after he sings, “Ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven,” in church. “The Bible is right, somebody’s wrong. Romans 1 and 27, ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven,” the boy sings.
It is shocking that these supposedly godly people are teaching hate, indoctrinating youth, and applauding the fruits of their labors. Did no one in that church think that this was not only wrong, not only evil, but un-godly?
The video appears to show The Rev. Jeff Sangl, the pastor and founder of the church, according to the church’s website, laughing and congratulating the child after he finishes the song.
A man is heard shouting, “That’s my boy!” as members of the congregation give the boy a standing ovation.
Since the video was posted online, the church’s Facebook page has been flooded with complaints from users across the globe.
“I’ve never seen such an appalling, horrific example of small minding, hate ridden bigots, brainwashing children in all my life,” wrote Ruth Mabey from England.
“Way to teach hate, you repressed inbreds. Does Jesus hate? I didn’t think so,” wrote Gerry Syler from Texas.
Others appeared to side with the church, congratulating them for taking a stand.
“Wow, y’all is getting famous. Praise the Lord! I will share your page with all my fellow believers. God will show you the way,” wrote Nathen Elbert Dovel from Virginia.
The church is the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana.
The church’s website states:
Rev. Jeff Sangl is the Pastor and Founder of Apostolic Truth Tabernacle.
Pastor Sangl answered the call of God to start a new work in Greensburg in May of 1997. With just his wife, 3 children, and 3 other founding members they acquired a building and property at 1011 Barachel Lane and held their first service on Sunday evening, May 18, 1997.
He often refers to those early days when they had no music and so few members during his messages.
The Lord has blessed the church under Pastor Sangl’s leadership and there has been good growth throughout the last 15 years. In January of 2007, the congregation moved to it’s new, beautiful location at 1114 Westridge Parkway.
Pastor Sangl is committed to bringing the One God message and the Acts 2:38 Plan of Salvation to the City of Greensburg and surrounding communities.
