An 11-year-old boy spends Easter Sunday shouting at pro-gay churchgoers in North Carolina
01 April 2013

An 11-year-old boy stood in front of North Carolina’s Green Street United Methodist Church on Easter Sunday giving the congregation a piece of his mind as they exited the church.

‘The Bible talks about the homosexuals – they’re worthy of death!’ the boy can be seen shouting at one point on video posted on the Good As You website.

The church recently announced that it would stop performing all weddings until it becomes legal for same-sex couples to get married in the US.

This is what spurred the protest by the unidentified boy who stood at the steps of the church with a placard which read: ‘Jesus Must Be Your Lord Or He Will Not Be Your Savior.’

He also shouted of gay people: ‘They’re worthy of death, and you people approve of them! That’s why you’re going to Hell without Jesus Christ. You can turn from your sin!"

He added: "It’s time to stop sinning and follow the lord Jesus Christ!"

The church’s 18-member leadership council last month had asked the pastor to perform ‘relationship blessings’ instead of weddings.

The United Methodist Church prohibits its pastors from conducting same sex weddings. The church also bans gay and lesbian people from serving as clergy.

Last May, voters in North Carolina passed a constitutional ban in gay marriages in the state.

Below is video of the boy’s demonstration:
