Congregation of Apostolic Truth Tabernacle erupts in thunderous applause after the song;  Pastor now getting death threats

Video of toddler singing ‘Ain’t No Homos Gonna Make It to Heaven’ in Indiana church goes viral
31 May 2012

Video of a toddler standing in front of an Indiana church congregation singing an anti-gay song has gone viral and now members say they are receiving death threats.

The song performed at the alter of Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana, included these 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 can be heard erupting in cheers after the performance by the 3-year-old boy.

TMZ.com reports that church members say Pastor Jeff Sangl received a death threat at home and is worried about his safety.

Security has been stepped-up at the church. A prayer meeting scheduled for Wednesday evening (30 May) at church had to be moved to a secret location.

But the church members interviewed by TMZ continue to stand by the message of the song and their reaction to it.

Said one: ‘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.’

It’s the third video to emerge in recent weeks showing rampant homophobia among some churches in the US. One North Carolina pastor advocated putting all gays and lesbians behind an electric fence while another suggested parents ‘punch’ their sons if they act gay.
